Movie night for blindies - 25 April 2009
Currently busy setting up a movie night for VI/blind people where will be
playing a few movie soundtracks for some guys with descriptive narration
added in to the normal soundtrack, and we've already found a decent venue
where there'll be drinks and food available, and me and the owner have
already decided that if sighted guys want to find out how it feels, they're
welcome to be there that day, but will have to wear blindfolds as such, but
apart from that one, we've also decided that we'll make sure there are a
couple of extra people on duty that night/afternoon in order to help all
'blindies' order refreshments, get to the toilet etc. etc.

The date/time for this happening will be on Saturday the 25th of April,
starting at around 2PM in the afternoon, and for what it's worth, this venue
is just off the R25 here in Kempton Park, so it's relatively easy to get
to/find, and if you need/want directions or GPS coordinates, you can ask me.

Finally, for that night/afternoon, was also thinking that along the lines of
how we used to 'see' movies in the old days, I might start off the occasion
with something shorter, and just a bit more entertaining, like narrative
audio versions of Tintin books I also have, and then might let the attendees
vote on what they want to see/hear afterwards since I have a broad range of
types ranging from classic movies, musicals, horror, science fiction,
action, romantic, etc. etc..
We have decided to basically charge a small flat fee for everyone, and it
will include supper later on, and while sighted people might have to also
pay a small fee for their blindfold/blinker, the total cost should range
from around R30-R70, and part of the dinner process might include a bit of a
'chance' thing where sighted people will try guess what the food is, since
they're used to seeing it normally, and part of the idea behind that is to
do a bit more than just share the blind movie experience with them.
Contact me via webmaster@xxxxxxxxxxxxx, or this email address if you want
more details, would like to be invited/notified etc.
