„The Haunting“ in einem verwunschenen Kino


(Youtube Direkthaunting)

Neben allen möglichen anderen Gründen wäre das hier ein Grund, in Kalifornien leben zu wollen: Am Samstag zeigen sie im Alex Theatre in Glendale zwei Screenings von einem meiner liebsten Horrorstreifen aller Zeiten: The Haunting. Der Twist dabei: Das Kino gilt selbst als verwunschen und von Geistern heimgesucht, beim Screening wird Parapsychologe Michael J. Kouri einen Vortrag über das Kino halten, Snip:

SK: So the Alex Theatre is haunted?

Michael J. Kouri: It’s very haunted. I grew up in Burbank and I used to go there to watch movies. I would often see a woman in the men’s room dressed as an usherette. And this is a weird thing to say, but I was at the urinal and somebody pinched me on my butt. I didn’t notice a ghost or anything. But while I was washing my hands I could see her reflection — in the mirror behind me — holding towels. Because I can see ghosts I could talk with her mentally, telepathically. I ask her her name and she didn’t say anything. Then I asked, ‘Why are you here?’ And she said, ‘Because I like my job. Wouldn’t you stay where you liked your job?’

I told my girlfriend the story. We went back to our seats. We were seated in the balcony and saw a strange light like a ball of lightning come down the middle aisle like an usher was helping somebody to their seat. Denise, my girlfriend, noticed it. There was no one humanly attached with it, but she thought she saw a hand on the flashlight. I could see it, too. I could see the same woman holding the flashlight, but I could also see a man and a woman both beautifully dressed. The usher was helping the woman to her seat, which was a couple of rows back and across from us. There are so many spirits there, they are doing the things they were doing when they were alive.

SK: Wait, so ghosts don’t just haunt the place they died?

Kouri: It’s a misnomer that they only haunt the places that they die. The thing is, they go back to places they enjoyed themselves. That was a place where the usherette had a regular routine. Her clothing looked like the period of the 1930s. I am a historian and an antiques dealer so I know the styles really well. She’s not always there. She’s only there at night.

‘The Haunting’ — and the haunted — at the Alex Theatre this Saturday

    Putting The Cost Of The ESA’s Rosetta Mission In Perspective

    "So what do we get for our €1.4bn? Rosetta is both an astounding feat of engineering (catapulting a tonne of spacecraft across millions of kilometres of space and ending up in orbit around a comet just 4 km across) and an extraordinary opportunity for science (allowing us to examine the surface of a lump of rock and ice which dates from when the Solar System formed).

    Like a lot of blue-skies science, it’s very hard to put a value on the mission. First, there are the immediate spin-offs like engineering know-how; then, the knowledge accrued, which could inform our understanding of our cosmic origins, amongst other things; and finally, the inspirational value of this audacious feat in which we can all share, including the next generation of scientists.

    Whilst those things are hard to price precisely, in common with other blue-skies scientific projects, Rosetta is cheap. At €1.4bn, developing, building, launching and learning from the mission will cost about the same as 4.2 Airbus A380s—pretty impressive when you consider that it’s an entirely bespoke robotic spacecraft, not a production airliner. On a more everyday scale, it’s cost European citizens somewhere around twenty Euro cents per person per year since the project began in 1996.

    Rosetta has already sent us some stunning images of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko and today’s landing will, with any luck, provide us with our first close-up glimpse of the chaotic surface of this dirty snowball. If you’re a sci-fi fan, then, you might consider the mission to have been worth its price tag just for the pictures. The total cost for the Rosetta mission is about €3.50 per person in Europe; based on the average cinema ticket price in the UK (€8.50), it has cost less than half of what it will cost for you to go to see Interstellar.”
