The weirdest experience I had watching a movie was in Rio de Janeiro. I went to a theater in a popular nightlife area called Cinelandia. I wanted to see an American movie. I think what was playing was Extremities, the Farrah Fawcett movie. I barely remember the movie, although I remember enjoying it. But about halfway through, we heard glass breaking from outside the theater. We in the audience looked around nervously but then settled back down to watch the movie. Then when the film was over, we walked out into Cinelandia and the plaza was completely empty, there was broken glass all around, and the square was surrounded by shoulder-to-shoulder riot police. While we had been watching this thriller, a riot had occurred outside.
