Watching 1917 in a theater does a lot for it since the sound is very important in the movie. It creates a lot of atmosphere that the movie kinda needs imo. Either way do what you feel like bud.

The main thing missing in theaters are Subtitles. If it's not foreign the Theater don't use them.

In my experience the broader issue is not the film being foreign, but rather the theater itself not having enough money to have adequate subtitling systems in place. There are some theaters that will have showings with the subtitles on screen, but many people find them distracting and won't attend those shows. I worked at a theater chain large enough to have a system of wireless glasses with synced titles that were projected inside the glasses so it looked like the titles were on the screen, but only for that person. I've always wanted to try them out. Looked something like this:

They come with a few different languages beside English as well, based on the film and the potential/projected audience.

If anyone needs some hope, some music documentarylike, and some cheesyness, watch Searching for Sugar Man. Damn that is a tearjerker.

There is no series board, but this comes close enough.
I just binged all of under the dome in like 2 days? A little less? And I have no idea why I did it. I like domes, I draw them a lot but this was a bit disappointing.
So mediocre... anyway it was like when you read a bad book, but you keep reading it because you want to know how it ends... Well everything was bad about it, utter mediocrity. Even some ''The Room'' vibes.

I remember hearing about the book and was vaguely interested in reading it because the concept sounded interesting.
