We used to go about once a year. The last time we went was when we were having a power failure and our house was getting cold so we went to the movies because it was warm there.
That’s a great idea! Lol
Yeah, usually we go to New Hampshire for a weekend in the winter and go snowshoeing and that is usually when we go see a movie.
Awww. That sounds like a fun tradition.
Yes, we missed last winter. I gave my kids a little pep talk yesterday about getting our lives back to normal. I'm not sure if I will get out in the kayaks this summer but I want the kids to take them out.
Haha! That will be good for everyone.
I haven't been to a drive in since my kids were little. There were a few pop up drive in theaters around here last summer. They were a real slice of Americana.
Yes definitely a slice of American history We have one near town so I'm looking forward to it better than sitting in a theater
@exitsevenHow dare you mention anything American!!!I’m a Commie Liberal! I know everything, you will obey !🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
Here's a thought 🖕

Yeah, I think it would be a shame if movie theaters disappeared forever.
It is kind of a romantic and cultural thing for me. When I was a teenager in high school, there was this theater that played older films... not super old but maybe 5-10 years old and no longer playing in the latest theaters. But the admission fee was only $2. I binged on those and it was popular with teenagers my age. I don't think even the best home experience with our best buddies can beat that... or vice versa. Sorta apples and oranges. But it's like even if I learn how to cook foie gras steak with red wine sauce better than the French restaurants at home, it is still a very different experience from 7-course French restaurant.
I miss arcades too while we're at it. I think video games today at home consoles are way more sophisticated than what we had in arcades when I was a teen. But it is a very different experience being at a shopping mall with a bunch of quarters playing Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat against friends over what we can do at home today. I don't like the idea of the home experience replacing that entirely.
I know, I just decided that I will go back just to support the local movie theaters. Actually we had a big shopping mall with a multiplex cinema that just was demolished but Showcase Cinema is supposed to come in and build a brand new one. I don;t know if that is really going to happen,
Yeah that seems a little suspect, that newer tech can draw them in. Seems doubtful. When the location's established already, I presume it's mostly about the movies that air.Although, I have been in some pretty crappy theatres. Problem is, you don't know which one you will get til you buy the ticket and get routed. Sometimes it's a nice big one; sometimes it's a crappy one and you have to sit close cause capacity is low.
Yes, we went to local cinema to see one of the Star Trek movies and we got stuck in the one in the basement and there were a couple of rats running around and my wife made us leave.
Oh dear.Who was more upset - her (for seeing the rats), or you (for missing the movie)?Well maybe your threatre could use a remodel.
That is awesome. Maybe they will make a comeback.
I hope so. It's so much more fun than going to the actual theater. Although if you're too far back it's kinda hard to see the screen.
In my youth I seem to remember other stuff that went on that made it hard to see the movie>
Awesome. life springs eternal.
