Dreams In A Movie Theater
Dreams In A Movie Theater2 mins 451 2 mins 451
I love going to the movie theatre
Not to watch the movie shown on the big screen
But to watch the movie playing in every person’s eyes...
A doctor who has finished a heart surgery
A cab driver who is yet to finish his day’s targets
An accountant who is in love with numbers
A content writer who is in love with words
A couple brought together by years of love
A couple brought together by months of matrimony searches
A man whose decisions are driven by caste
A woman who does not believe in God
An admirer of the actor
A devotee of the director
And so many more types of men and women
Are brought together in a dark room
Where they get to dream with their eyes open..
Dreams of a hundred varieties
Made possible by the dream of one filmmaker.
The screen might show the hero and heroine falling in love
But the eyes of a young viewer might project pain
From his recently failed relationship.
The screen might show the hero losing a parent
But the eyes of an old viewer might express joy
From his happiness in having lived a good life.
A fight in the movie might trigger a fire in a hundred eyes
A song in the movie might trigger pleasure in a hundred more.
As the images move at 24 frames per second
The viewers' flights of fancy flow along from the start to the end.
If movie studios are dream factories
Then equally so are movie theatres.
The next time you walk into a theatre
Don't just pay attention to the deafening whistles
Also, pay attention to the dreamy eyes...
