In another time, the cinema is a place to socialize. You pay to get in a dark place with a big screen showcasing people who are ace at pretending they care for each other. You enter a cinema and there are cocktail party tables, people are expectant, their eyes convey "I hope someone comes near me." They hold their drinks and hearts, ready to either throw them or hold them in, dependent on how their day at the cinema unfolds. It's hushed even if they have a conversation piece right there on the screen. They choose the safety of intuition.
