My heart truly has been 'Spirited Away'

What a great experience we had last night. First, our theatre has been upgrading its seats. Instead of the usual theatre seat, we now have recliners. They went from stuffing 400 people into a theatre to just 100. The flooring was replace with carpet (in the walk ways, not beneath the seats). It was so comfortable! I will go more just for that!

Second, there was a nice crowd of about fifty people, all there because they love Ghibli. It was great to talk with them and meet some like minded folks. However, because many of the theatres are still down, there was great parking!

Third, the print was fabulous and I saw things I'd never seen before because of the size. Just tiny things, but still fun to see. Such attention to detail!

Lastly, they ran three new Ghilbi shorts with animation similar to My Neighbors The Yamadas.

Not so great - a small popcorn and a bottle of water cost me nearly $12. That's a bit steep. It would have been cheaper to buy a cheeseburger and fries. Sigh... Ticket prices have also gone up, although this was a special event and more expensive than a regular movie, anyhow.

All in all, it was a great experience and I will do it again. I wonder if they are going to be showing Howl's or Totoro
