I work at an arts cinema.
A customer once asked me this: Do you like working at the cinema? Is it just like cinema paradisio but without a fire or Italians?’
I answered :
‘Digitalisation has kind of zapped the magic out of it. But i’d say that the cinema has just as much drama going on as the films. Even without the massive fires and fiery Italians. I kind of love it. I love writing about it. I like the quirky customers and the surreal situations. Its good, but being a popcorn professional isn’t something I want to do forever.’
