Last night I made my first trip to the movie theater here in Spain. What a blast! Teresa was away for the weekend with some of her German friends from class on a climbing adventure - so Natalie and I decided to go out to the movies to see Paranormal Activity 2.
I love everything about this movie theater. First, the tickets are not that expensive. Second, the popcorn is amazing!!! Third, the seats are incredibly comfortable. Natalie and I both agree that American movie theaters should be more like this.
The other unique thing about television and film here in Spain - there are no subtitles. Translation is done using "dublada" or voice-over. In fact, most Spanish people recognize the voices and even have favorites. I prefer this when watching television or movies. Subtitles can be distracting and aren't as useful in helping me practice my Spanish.
Overall, the night was a success. Although, I must say, the movie left me pretty terrified. I'm sure we will be going again!
