The Theater - The first meeting between the protagonist and Kathleen takes place here. This is also where the two are headed when the accident occurs.

The Hospital - This is where Eliezer spends ten weeks recuperating from his accident. It is a sterile place, and as such, it has little to contribute to the story line.
