This holiday season, we invited a family friend of ours to North Carolina to spend time with us. It has been a special holiday for all of us as a result. This gentleman has been stuck in care facilities or to one room of his house for the past three or four years. He's kept up on news and current events, but not on entertainment. Yup, that means he hadn't seen a movie until this past week! We took him to Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, which he enjoyed immensely. Then, last night, all my family in NC came over for a movie night. It was his birthday too, so we started the evening with a little cake followed by a movie of his choosing. He chose... Phantom Menace. He sat... in the sweet spot. I live in a townhouse, and typically don't play movies too loudly, but last night we did. My brother-in-law went outside for a spell and confirmed you could hear a good portion of the movie out there (and all of the bass of course). It was so much fun watching my 5 & 2 year old nephews watching the pod race. They had a look of wonder on their faces! Truly a special evening for all. Just one more reason I want to build a dedicated home theater room in my next house!
