Saturday night I went to see Hotel Transylvania at Cineppolis. A 3D version, this outing marked my first film of this type outside of an IMAX theatre.

The movie, an animated tale about the power if love to cross cultural divides, was completely in Spanish, including the delightful score. Clearly designed for children, the film appealed to me as I speak Spanish as a little girl still (although under Flor’s cultivation I’m maturing quickly).

The 3D elements caused the majority of the crowd to squeal in equal parts delight and fear. I could hear the magic of film working throughout the duration of the story.

A great way to hear Spanish, to have the music of the words, sentences, songs in my ears, films, as much for their didacticism and delight, are an important part of my curriculum.
