We are going to try a matinee so that we can have a nice dinner after and not feel so stressed. Dinner will be at a thai restaurant down the street from the cinema. They always have tables and it's quiet so we won't be wandering in the desert for 40 d 40 n like before. :-) Oh the restaurant only takes cash. I apologize about that, it's a good one though and not at all expensive.
I love the premise of this doc. It's about how music can reach part of our brain even if the rest seems shut off. I read a great book awhile back called Musicophilia by Dr. Oliver Sacks and it was fascinating. I'm eager to learn more.
So it's a life affirming doc that will certainly give us something to talk about. I hope to see you all there.
Please arrive by 4 so we can find seats. It shouldn't be hard but I like to be prepared.
