National Film Board, Queen & John Sts.: elevator

Vicky: I hate elevators, they're so coffin-like.

Reena: I love elevators! I feel like they're free rides.

Vicky: I hold my breath, and I stare at the numbers and wait with my heart pounding in my ears for the door to open.

Reena: It's like being at an amusement park in little microcosms all over the city.

Vicky: I fear it won't open and I will die in there. I'll be found a skeleton.

Reena: I've never been in this elevator before.

Vicky: Oh, I have. But only once. And after that, I asked them to let me use the stairs. The walls of the elevator are brushed metal with big bolts. It's very industrial looking and particularly coffin-like.

Reena: I like the bell sounds when we reach different floors.
