Childhood Memories Two

A chapter in the book Childhood Memories

Buttery Goodness

by Bichon

As a child, I loved watching movies and shows on the television. The tiny box that sat quietly in the corner provided all the entertainment I needed.
I can even recall inserting in my favourite DVDs in the convenient slot, and the joy I felt as I opened the plastic casing to reveal the shiny circle contained within.

I had become so accustomed to viewing films on the sleek television set, that I couldn't imagine seeing them played on anything else. When I first heard the word "cinema", I couldn't quite figure out what it was all about.

During a car journey to this cinematic building, my excitement was reaching fever pitch. I knew straight away when we had arrived as the car pulled into the parking area that this was going to be a very special experience. The cinema exuded brightly coloured lights that made the quiet surroundings light-up with glee.

As soon as we entered the cinematic edifice, I was overcome with an amazing scent that I soon learned to identify as popcorn. As we strolled through the lobby, I was astonished by the dazzling posters advertising the content that this wonderland offered. As we made our way into the show, I stared in awe at the size of the screen ahead of me. To my little eyes, it was an ever-expanding object. Even as the movie began to play, the quality of the emitted sound and moving images still kept me in amazement. It was almost as if I had been transported to a new world, a very realistic one.

After the movie had finished, I was promised that we'd come back again to repeat this unbelievable experience. Seeing something so magical was truly one of the most exciting experiences a youthful being can receive.

I still love visiting the cinema to this day.
