The Siskel Center is opening tomorrow, but they had a sneak preview of one of the movies yesterday – free for the members.
Both Igor and I signed up, not for this particular movie but for the sake of being a part of reopening.
Yesterday morning, the Siskel Center sent out an email saying that they need to limit the occupancy of the theaters to 50% of capacity and that some people who already signed might not be able to attend.
They didn’t tell us when the doors will be opened, so when Igor and I stopped to check out the situation at 5-50, there was already a small line:).
Long story short: we believe that everybody who came was seated after all, and we didn’t have to come over an hour in advance.
As for the movie itself – I am not sure what to make out of it. We both agreed that we would rather have some other movie for the opening night. For me, it felt like a waste of time to spend two and a half hours stating that one shall not kill, that jealousy is bad and that the child’s talents should not be exploited. And all of that with some creepy elements.
But I will let more cinematography-wise people decide.
