I just wanted to give an update and a shout out to Landmark’s Grand 10! The manager will reserve a seat for my husband, so I have bought tickets for December 18th to see Star Wars VII!
There’s only one problem now. It’s in 3D which plays havoc with my MS vertigo. It first raised its head when I went to see Avatar with my husband and step daughter. After a few minutes I realised that as soon as things started to move on screen, the whole movie theatre started spinning! I took the glasses off. No go, everything is blurred. I put the glasses back on and covered up my left eye. All good. Only another 2 hours to go… this wasn’t going to be an option for the whole film. I found a kleenex in my bag – a clean one I have to say – and draped it over one eye. Success!
I tapped my step daughter on the shoulder to show her, and she nearly fell out of her chair laughing. But necessity is the mother of invention, and all that.
Since then I haven’t been able to go to the movies very often, for other MS related reasons. I’ve also tried to see the movie in 2D when it’s offered – because paying extra to sit with one eye covered isn’t really worth it. When I have no choice but 3D, I now have a bespoke solution, and channel my inner pirate…
