Take 2, Lens-Artists Photo Challenge # 116: SYMMETRY

Saw Infidel at the Century 20. If you don’t take it too seriously (Christian blogger goes to Egypt — to try and convert Muslims? — guess what happens to him), it is entertaining. It was her first Jim Caveziel movie in forever, and at first she didn’t recognize him. His hair’s gone light, and he’s heavier. She thinks the last movie she saw him in was the one where he played the son of Dennis Quaid. Frequency, she thinks it was.

Self has loved movies since she was a little girl, she and her Dear Departed Dad shared this passion and would go often. Even here, when he had to have part of a foot amputated (He had very advanced diabetes and a small wound on his foot developed gangrene) at UCSF Medical Center on Parnassus, self would take him to movies. He needed to keep his foot elevated; she’d put his foot on her lap (it had a cast).

Century 20 shut down in March, but finally opened again last week. Her first post-opening movie was Tenet. Whoa! Mind-blowing.

No telling how long Century 20 will remain open, she noticed there aren’t any first-run movies on the schedule for the entire month of October. So, wanting to commemorate maybe her last movie in a theater for a while, she took along her camera and took these pictures.

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge was SYMMETRY. She thinks her pictures are a good example of Horizontal Symmetry.

There were only four other people in the entire theater with her, more than adequate social distancing!

Stay safe, dear blog readers. Stay safe.

    Excellent. I would like to see Tenet, even though I’ve read that the dialog is difficult to hear and understand.

      I liked it, but I couldn’t explain the plot to you. I loved the cinematography. And the acting. I think you’ll enjoy it more if you don’t try to understand it and just go with the flow.

        I like many movies just for the filming of it, stunts, special effects, etc.

    Hi, Marianne. Seat symmetry! Wonderful! Good news…there are some movies now in the editing/post production pipeline. They’re slated for release in 2021. So, you’ll have to wait a few more months.
