I humped it all the way across the Williamsburg Bridge and across lower Manhattan to the Film Forum last night to catch a 3-D showing of Gorilla at Large, only to be stopped by this note on the ticket-seller’s window. I thought I might be able to cup my ears and tough it out, so I asked the ticket-taking guy if I could go in and listen to the sound of the unspooling 7:30 pm show before paying my $12 bucks. The actors were whispering to each other. It was like listening to throat-cancer survivors.
