Good Essay About The Interview Of My Neighbor
The interviewee was Johnson. One of the elderly neighbors aged 65 years. Johnson grew up in Texas in a family of four. He currently lives in Washington. He gave his experience in movie watching while young.
According to my neighbor, his greatest movie going experience was in 1950. He was young; he was changed and officially hooked on the pop culture for the rest of his life. He likes the pop culture until now. He said this was his stepping stone into the pop culture.
On one occasion, he went to the movies with his father who he had never accompanied to watch a movie before. His father was hard on hearing, and the trailer was for Bram Stokers Dracula. The father yelled out loudly Gary Coleman when the announcer said Gary dolmans name. The auditorium set out laughing
My neighbor went to watch movies most of the time with his friends. One of such moments that can be remembered were when he was eight years old. His friends and he went to watch a brand new movie that was known as star wars. He did not know what he expected to see, but he remembers as soon as the movie was over he borrowed begged a pleaded for another $ 1.50 so that he could watch the film once again. He saw the movie four times during that summer.
He also took his daughter to her first movie when he became a young father since she was his first born. However, they did not make through the film because of the mother who was mean. It was so exciting seeing his daughter enjoy the movie as much as he enjoyed the movie.
He also recalls how often he went to the movies. He loved movies and could ensure that he was in the theater each and every weekend. It was one way of breaking monotony and having a break from school life. It felt great having a weekend out with friends in a theater to watch one's favorite movies.

When he was as young as nine years, watching one movie could cost one$ 1.50. He could easily convince my father to give me this. He could at times pay if we went to the movies together with him. However, the price increased as the years went by. In his early 20s, the price had risen from $ 1.50 to $ 2.0. This he could obtain from the little pocket money that he was given by his parents.
There is a difference between watching movies then and now. During that time, as patrons entered the theater before the snow time, they lowered their voices naturally in spoke in tones that were hushed as they tried to find their seats. The auditorium was given an aura of majesty by the lush, dark velvet curtain that covered the screen and demanded that people be on their best behavior. The folks talked quietly among themselves when they were seated which was made possible because the pop hits were not coming out of big super woofers. When the curtains parted with a flourish and the lights dimmed, the audience felt silent anticipation. Since the theater owners found out how to turn the screens into temporary billboards, the curtains have not covered movie screens.
