If you’ve been following the case of Andrea v.s. AMC Yorktown 17, you know that the screening was indeed rescheduled for today thanks to my complaining.
We arrived at AMC Yorktown and got our tickets; my sister, Sara, Sara’s sister Lily, and I. Lily did not attend the previous screening nor does she usually like watching the same tv shows/movies as my sister, Sara, and myself. I’m not sure how Sara convinced her to go.
While picking up our tickets the workers were saying that the Frankenstein showing was gonna be pretty much empty. We bought some popcorn and soda and made our way to theater 12. We walked the hall inside and turned to find some seats only to find the room was completely empty.
I wasn’t expecting there to be a huge turnout since I figured no one really knew about it. I think that when the machine malfunctioned they should have made a list and taken the names and numbers of people interested in a re-screening so they could call people. But Sara says that the management usually doesn’t bother with re-screenings. The only reason they seemed to make any effort was because I complained. I feel bad for anyone was at the cancelled screening and didn’t know about the reschedule and therefore didn’t get to see it.
It kinda felt like we were at a private screening because we were alone in the theater. One of the upsides to this was that we could talk and make comments to one another during the movie to compare the two performances with out disturbing anyone since there was no one there.
OK now to talk about the performances… I can’t even… it was just really good. I just love this play so much.
I really can’t pick with version was my favorite because there are just so many things I can pick apart. There were scenes where I preferred the way Benedict played the creature and the same goes for Viktor Frankenstein. I can’t really articulate it very well since it was just too brillant and because I’m typing this at 2 AM
I was applying for a job and fixing my resume. Overall, both of these brilliant actors gave amazing performances that were indeed very distinct. The differences were great because they each performance a subtle difference and perspective on the characters.
All I can say for certain is that I’d really love for it to be released on DVD so I could watch it when ever I want.
Do it National Theatre, do it!!
