Platform 9 3/4
I've always loved movies on the big screen. The dark room, the overwhelming sensory input - sight and sound - the opportunity to check out for a couple of hours and reset whatever was going on in your head before it started. It's just not the same on a DVD or your cell phone.
My earliest movie experience was seeing "How the West Was Won" at age 7 with my two brothers - I remember almost nothing, except that it was incredibly long and had an intermission. In retrospect, I wonder what my parents were up to…. In the following years, I fell in love with Julie Andrews in "Sound of Music" and "Mary Poppins". I wanted to sing and dance and be an actress and those movies fueled my imagination and were the soundtrack for my life.
