  1. My family went to watch the movie Up! We sat 3rd row from the back and the theater was fairly empty, no one sitting for at least 5 rows in front of us and no one behind us. Right before the lights dimmed, something stroked the back of my neck. I thought it was strange, knowing that no one was sitting behind us, I turned around to look (in case someone had snuck in) but there was no one there. The rest of the movie went without incident until right before the end. We had been shopping before we came in, so I had 2 small shopping bags between my feet. I was using a small camera bag as a purse and it was placed in one of the bags. All of a sudden, I felt something moving by my foot. I looked down and didn’t see anything. Then I felt it again, I leaned down to pick up the shopping bag and I couldn’t quite grab it. The camera bag inside of it was moving, or “rolling” as best a nearly square object can, and as I tried to pick up the bag it was in, it started rolling faster. I kept trying to grab the shopping bag but missing. The camera case rolled over my foot and landed with the shopping bag on the other side then stopped. I picked up the shopping bag to see if there was anything else inside it, but there wasn’t. It was kind of cool, but really strange.
