Dialogue 8-2

Going to the Movies

— Shall we see a film tonight?

— That would be delightful. I haven’t seen any films for many weeks.

— There are several movies in the neighbourhood which show the latest pictures.

— Let’s consult the newspapers to see what movies are being shown in the town.

— A splendid idea.

— At the nearest cinema house they show a film of the year.

— My wife and I have already seen it. We enjoyed it immensely.

— Here is a good programme. They show two main pictures, a French film and an American. I don’t think you have seen them.

— I have seen neither of them. Shall we be able to obtain seats? That movie house is always full.

— Seats are not reserved at that movie house, but I am sure we shall be able to get in. Shall we buy balcony seats, if stall seats are not available?

— Please don’t. I hate seeing a film from the balcony, it is too far from the screen. I wear glasses.

— Ok. The movie starts in ten minutes. There are many comfortable seats in the foyer. We can wait there and enjoy a cigarette in the meantime.

— Now, that we have seen both films. What do you think of the films?

— In the French film the actors spoke with a slight French accent. The acting was faultless, but the action developed very slowly. Don’t you agree with me?

— Yes, I do. 1 like more the English film. The plot was very interesting. The camera work was excellent.
