I can feel the velvet on the seats, the cushy carpet under foot and faintly smell popcorn.

I feel this woman is thinking nothing of the film, she is "elsewhere. "Divided by scarlet tapestries, two dramas unfold...."

It's a screener for movie company execs and she can't bear having to see/hear their reactions.

Edward Hopper was a genius. I love when fine art is inspired by film and vice versa.

She's seen the movie dozens of times. Her feet are tired & life hasn't turned out like Hollywood.

I know it's cliche, but Nighthawks is my favorite painting by Hopper.

Did the movie overcome her with melancholy? Is it too close to home?
