The Hateful Eight

Now showing at the Park theatre is Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight. I normally wouldn't review a mainstream movie on this site, but this one is a bit different. Why? Because Tarantino has two versions of the film. One is the regular theatrical version, and the other is toted as being the "traveling roadshow" version, which includes an Overture and Intermission and is shown on 70mm film.

The only theatre in Vancouver with this is the Park, over on Cambie Street. I got my ticket in advance, and managed to get there an hour beforehand to get a good seat. I went to the 2pm show and by the time I arrived, signs were already up saying that both the 2pm and 6pm show were sold out. So, get your tickets early!

As for the movie, it was more about the experience. It was great to see that ray of light streaming from the projector towards the screen. It was so pleasant to be around other patrons who weren't texting on their phones or talking - everyone was there to watch a MOVIE.
