I had to tell people, no, I had never seen the show. Sometimes a cult film can just pass a person by for one decade and then another and then another. All the way from the plays inception in 1973 as a musical to now.
Gillian had two tickets to see the show at a local theatre. Those tickets already had names on them, one of them being Duncan's.
In preparation, people who had never seen the movie, also go to see the moview in a family viewing the night before.
We had everything -- the treats, the pre-reading done, and the movie downloaded.
I didn't know about the throwing of the toast nor the rice nor the spraying of the water, nor the dancing in the isles.
I was to learn all about this on the Friday night viewing.
And I was a passenger in the car as Ben and Duncan were dropped off at the corner of Quadra and Johnson Streets to join the queue of people showing their electronic tickets and being given entrance to the theatre.
When it is Halloween, I can't really tell if people are dressed up or not. At least not in all cases. For example, the person standing in line on crutches? Were those crutches props, or the real thing.
At the intermission Duncan sent his mother a text saying, "This is better than I had ever imagined."
On the way home the men told us that it was just not the people in the isle seats that were dancing. They reported that the whole theatre was alive with folk finishing off the evening with one last dance.
