I have something I need to admit. I needed a little American culture today. It is funny how I can’t wait to leave home, yet when I am away I enjoy the moments when I can think of my normal life. Man of Steel was my return home today. I went to the cinema at Les Halles and learned a few things I thought I’d share. By the way, the movie was awesome. It was so cool to see the scenes filmed in my area. I saw them filming the part with the tornado for those of you that have seen the movie. Who would have thought Russell Crowe, Henry Cavill, Kevin Costner, and Diane Lane would be in my neck of the woods. I should have been an extra… Henry Cavill can save me any day. Anyway, here are some French cinema tips.
-If you want to see an American movie in English, look for a VO after the name. This stands for the original version, so if it was shot in English, you will see the movie in English with French subtitles.
-There are a lot of movies in 3D. This was my first movie I saw in 3D, and I don’t know if it is worth the extra money. Look into it and decide what you like best.
-Going to the cinema alone is no big deal, so if you want to see a movie, go for it. I was definitely not the only one there by myself. Plus, who cares.
-There are major cinemas/theaters similar to those at home, but there are also smaller, more avant garde cinemas.
Enjoy the show!
