25天之後……

2007/06/07 at 9:02 am | Posted in 光影絮言 | 15 Comments

  由一個14、15度的環境,一轉回到30度的香港,當機場的玻璃門一開啟,甫踏出一步,就像走入了熱帶溫室,濕膩的感覺怪不舒服,當然,實情是倒轉的,是由清涼花園回到實在的亞熱帶家園。

  回來了,25天過去,有點緩慢,旅途中年長了一歲,生活節奏又拖慢了一點。

  以往,旅程都往北走,這一回,決意走了一轉南半球,也好,至少今年多度過了一個月冬季。澳洲的秋冬季,可以很冷,在中部沙漠地區,有天早上4時半起床候車,8度的天氣,凍到震,把緊有的衣服都穿上身--衛衣加兩件風褸和一件抓毛背心,多古怪。天未光,沒人看到就是了。

  起行前,想過不去觸碰電腦查電郵,但其中一間旅舍可以免費用電腦,貪小利的我便去查,但只見一列列的來郵,卻無法開啟郵件,當然見到這兒出現了好些甚麼casino的入侵郵件,但管不了。

  另一方面,亦見到各位朋友繼續的留言,感謝。

  除了頻頻未天光起身前往車站,在澳洲,亦有其他時間在暗黑環境活動。澳洲的戲院放映是否很蓬勃?我這種三數天過客,實在不能多嘴,但直覺上,答案是「不」,而我這個逗留近一個月的遊客,也為他們5、6月份的票房出了一分綿力。

  在澳洲幾個大城市,有時讓我以為身在香港,也許是住處樓下那間Giordano或購物區的Bossini作怪,戲院的情況也有點像,不過,稍不同的,是還能夠跑到經營了70年而仍在運作、沒有縮細的戲院看電影。

  澳洲目下的電影工業,我估(只能估)還不如香港,戲院都在上美國片,還有《滿城盡戴黃金甲》。幸好,5月31日有一部當地製作《Romulus, My Father》開畫,無疑,它也沾了點美國味,因為男主角Eric Bana和導演Richard Roxburgh,都在美國影圈頗活躍。

  1. 哈,我竟然是第一個。:p

    Welcome home!

  2. 咁啱得咁橋……

    啱啱在youtube見到呢段片,post俾大家睇︰

  3. 回來了啦!有無去悉尼個Imax呢?

  4. 歡迎回來, 旅遊不忘電影, 太厲害.
    幾時一聚, 聽聽你的旅遊經?

  5. 我都要離港一會,回來再找你飲茶啦!

  6. 首先來到留言,反想知道現在澳洲戲院的運作模式。我想可能較香港靈活吧

  7. To Readandeat
    看你寫, 亦剛外遊回來, 想信很enjoy your reading and eating吧!

    To 渡邊
    竟然找到澳門電視台的節目, 看到南灣戲院, 不日都可寫一段呢!

    To Gael
    沒有去悉尼的IMAX, 反而在珀斯則不時經過位於北橋的IMAX, 但不知仍在裝修, 還是翻新? 總之是工程在進行中. 在珀斯經歷了三天公眾假期, 悄靜得很, 唯有北橋帶來一點人氣. 待你回來後再談吧!

    To 鬼茂
    在城市流轉, 尤其這種西方城市, 到戲院, 於我, 就有走景點的感覺. 往後在這裡都會寫多一點點, 驟看, 遊歷彷彿成了戲院之旅!

    To Ryan
    我其實沒有去過市內的大型院線, 因為都在放映「蜘蛛俠」、「魔盜王3」. 其他戲院的運作, 之後也會寫多一點, 簡單來說, 可謂「靈活」, 感覺就是self service, 除了售票, 其他環節都沒有人員管理似的, 而且售票全都和糖果部結合, 所謂戲票, 只是收銀機的一張單而已.

    買了票便可入場, 無人把關, 內進後便自動波找所屬戲院, 我試過直入, 原來上一場還在放映, 觀眾只好在門外等, 待先前一場觀眾陸續離場, 大家又很自律的在等, 等字幕放完, 等全部人走清, 便自己內進隨便坐, 等開場, 亦沒有人進來清潔之類, 不過也不用清潔, 因為只有十個八個觀眾, 都很清潔.

  8. Welcome home!

  9. hi, so u went to aust! which part u went to? did u have a gd trip?
    btw did u get another aust film magazine, ‘inside film’, too? it’s quite a popular one also. link: http://www.if.com.au/
    the sydney film festival’s started last nite, getting excited, haha..

  10. Thank you.

    To va
    Having a train trip, started in Sydney, then moved to Melbourne and Alice Spring through Adelaine. Finally, from Adelaine to Perth.

    As I recalled, you had have a long trip in Australia not long ago. You still there?

    Not got the “Inside Film”, actually the “Film Ink” was brought in Airport, my last purchase. I got the Sydney Film Festival programme book. What appealing me is one of the showing venues — State Theatre. In fact, I emailed to the theatre before the trip, looking for chances to have a look inside the theatre. However, they only have group tour, and they cannot arrange me in any other group. So only have a glance on their entrance lobby, so as Capital Theatre.

  11. the state theatre is one of the reason i participate in the film festival. it’s such a historical and beautiful building, watching movie inside must be a pleasure. i’ll go to a screening there this afternoon, hopefully i can take some pic there;-)
    actually i’m staying and working in syd now but have to leave in early sept as the visa will expire then. before coming back i think i’ll go north to travel.

  12. Sound good! Enjoy your working holiday.

  13. 代郵予渡邊兄:你是哪位?我認識你的嗎...

  14. hi pak, enjoy ur photos and yes i think u will miss the chilly weather in aus, after seeing ur photos, i so want to travel!!!

  15. Thx Bubi.

    Hope you will have a wonderful trip in Europe then. I guess you miss chilly weather too — stay in such a “warm” office.
