Such forms of entertainment like books, theater, and sports games were known even in antiquity. Circuses, funfairs, carnivals, roller – coasters and carrousels were made up many years ago as well, whereas cinema came into being only in the end of nineteenth century. Lumiere brothers demonstrated the very first motion picture in 1895. The earliest films were very short and soundless. Usually the performances of silent films were accompanied by live piano music. First movies with synchronized sound came in sight thirty years later. These films are called ‘talkies’. Sometimes they are sub – titled or dubbed so that people who don’t understand the language could understand the film. Nowadays cinema grew into a great industry. Producers, directors and the cast earn a lot of money. Actors are nearly gods for teenagers. Almost every family has a TV set. Cinema turned up recently, developed rapidly and insensibly became an important part of our lives. Going to the cinema is one of the best ways of spending our leisure time. It’s a wonderful way to meet your friends and the main thing – sophistication!
Going to the cinema is one of the most popular way of spending free time. Nowadays we have quite large range of cinamas and we can choose desirable movie from large quantity of movies offered.
I always feel excited to go watching a movie in the cinema. I think it’s because when since childhood, it had been an exciting event for me to watch cartoon or Walt Disney movie. My parents usually will bring me there occasionally especially when there is a good film release. Sometimes, I found that some of my friends do not seem to be anticipating new movies as I am. Possibly they do not have great interest in watching movie or they did not enjoy watching movie since childhood. But if I go to watch movie, I won’t go alone. I’ve never been to the cinema alone, but I think it’s something I really want to do. It’d be scary for me as I don’t have a lot of confidence, but I think it’s a good thing to do to promote your independence.
Today we can download movies or watch movies on the internet, but still I miss the feeling in the cinema, drink cola, eatting popcorn, etc… memories go back to childhood. Going to the cinema is the most excited way for fun. The main goald of mine of going to the cinema – to expand horizon, to acquire new experience and knowlegge.
There are different kinds of films. Western, love stories, cartoon, tragedies, horror films, detective stories, feature films, musicals. Your choice depends on your mentality and intellect.
I_m impressed by feature films, especially with distinguished actors or actresses. There are names in the cinema history, which are regarded unique and timeless. Such is Greta Garbo, who herself is the history of the cinema.
Greta Garbo the distinguished film actress , was a unique personality among Hollywood stars , in the 1920-30_s , who never revealed to the world her biography.
All we know about her is that she was born in Stockholm in 1906, was trained in the city school , and at 16 become a pupil of the Royal Dramatic Academy. She never played on the stage.
What did she have that made her a great star? Her work began when she was given a script. She studied it very thoroughly. She studied out every situation, every time detail of it, everything. She memorised all the script which had been translated specially for her into Swedish. She knew exactly what she would do in front of the camera in every episode. She worked at top speed and at full emotion. She never rehearsed. She gave to the camera all she had, leave nothing for extremely difficult to play with Garbo.
She was a miracle. Like every great actor she could throw all of herself into a part, and having done that, she came out of it quite lifeless, her vitality burnt out.
On the set between scenes she would sleep in chair during all the intervals. She was and she looked different from all other stars, she as unrecognisable being tall, boyish, rather badly dressed, with no make up on he face. But the studio bosses often seeing Garbo on the screen for the first time become speechless as they saw a true miracle, a great artist. Cameras were found of shorting her. Garbo on the screen was extremely popular.
Garbo life was never social success. Fame couldn_t give her anything but difficulties. She lived modestly, without fine clothes or jewels, without house or an expensive car.
She worked with many film directors, which liked her, because their pictures with Greta Garbo were a great success. This film about the famous actress and a simple woman, in life, made a deep impression on me and it is still fresh in my memory.
