I feel like there is always a debate on whether movies are better than live theater. Well everybody has their own views and reasons to support them about whether movies or live theatre. My reactions towards live theater is that no matter where scene the actor is telling his story, your imagination can alter the story. Each performance is impossible to replicate since everyone's mind works differently. Most all live theater is intense and breath taking, by how the actor is using real emotions to capture the audience. As for films and TV shows, the plot is often already planned and directors have unnecessary special effects just to draw the crowd with an attention-grabber. Also films are recorded and a single line or scene can be easily filmed ten or fifteen times till it comes out to be satisfactory; whereas live theater there is room for error to mess up and stumble words. Technology has a huge advantage to films since viewers suspend their disbelief less and retain all the images that are on the film screen, creating a false image on the viewers thought of the story. Although stance and tone of voice are important in both live theater and films, camera angle is a huge factor in films. If a slight error in the camera angle is shot the whole film could be in ruins. My favorite live theater performance was Another Earth by Mark. This skit was very interesting since I could imagine myself trapped in a little small space shuttle flying through the solar system with a…
someone else do it for them. However; this is not the goal a horror film is trying to particularly portray. Entertainment is available in many forms and growing every year with new technology on the rise. Horror movies are one of the oldest ways of getting satisfactory entertainment, not to be used as therapy.
King also compares watching a horror film to the rush one gets while riding a roller coaster. This is true, watching a horror film has much more to it than blood and guts for the insane eyes in…
truths of this world is theater. Through theater, people got to see the reality of this world through the lens of writers, directors and actors. Theatre like any other art form has a message. This meaning can range from a personal to a political message. Furthermore, theater is a tool that is used to expose particular highlights and flaws of society.

Art Paper 1
During this semester I attended the Miami International Film Festival. It was located at the Regal Cinema in South Beach on March 14. I loved the scenery of the movies and how grand it was inside. Before going in to watch the movie I got to take a walk around Lincoln Road, appreciating the beauty of our city. I was so impressed by the inside of the theatre that I cannot wait to go back.
The theatre has three stories and as you go up each you are able to see the view of Miami…

Volunteering at the Loew’s Theater in Journal Square was an amazing experience. I met a lot of interesting people, watched a Halloween movie for free, learned a lot about how the theater works, and learned about the history of the Loew’s Theater. It felt great helping my community.
As soon as I walked in the theater, I was stunned by its beauty, and an individual could tell there was a historic story just by looking around the theater. The theater was huge. I did not really explore…
The experience of watching a live play is rare and special. Even though movies
managed to evolve from live theater at the start of it all, it has changed juristically throughout the centuries. Many things have changed among the years such as the cost of the movies and back then, there were no special effects, and finally there are women actors rather than the guys playing every role.
One of the major things I think about before going to the movies is the final cost because it is always slowly…

The Relevancy of Musical Theater
In an age when we are defined by the number of tweets we receive in a day or the number of friends who have ‘faced us’, it has become inherently important to find moments that we have interpersonal contact. Though we may find entertainment value while attending the movies or a sports event, theater offers us the opportunity to gather holding a collective spirit. It is a vehicle to explore community…
