I am on a journey, to make Aliyah, and want to share my journey with my family, friends and anyone that is interested. I made the decision to make Aliyah in December 2002 and now I am actually doing it. This blog will chronicle my story and adventures leading up to getting on the plane and then the continuing story of the beginning of my new life in Israel and what I experience once there.

Harry Potter

Had to wait a few extra days, but finally saw the movie last Thursday. It was such a different experience. Got to the theater on opening day for the 2nd show of the day. I arrived a 40 minutes prior to the show and there was no line to purchase tickets. In Israel you select your seats so you know where you'll be sitting when you get in the theater, kind of nice and if you were to get up for any reason, you know your seat would still be there when you returned. The previews ran, some in English, some in Hebrew, but only a few and the the theater darkened and the movie started. Half way through the movie there is an intermission, which is also kind of nice, you get to go to the bathroom and if you need/want to purchase anything you don't have to miss any of the movie to do so.

Well as for my review, I love anything Harry Potter, so in that light I enjoyed it. I was disappointed that certain parts of the book were omitted but since I know the "whole story" I'll just have to accept that I know what really happened.
If you click on the pic of the ticket you might be able to read it (if you read Hebrew) although it is a little fuzzy.
