Dim and dimmer

I went to the cinema this evening to see The Boy with the Striped Pyjamas. An absolutely wrenching, harrowing film, one which helps you appreciate the value of life and goodness.

Whenever I go to the cinema—rarely nowadays; the previous time was to see Sideways at the Regal on North End Avenue, Battery Park City in 2005—I always think they’re dimming the lights when they’re not. A good few seconds can elapse between my thinking they’re dimming and my realising that they’re not. I guess it’s not just me.
