I think I’ve mentioned I live in a very small town. We have one old movie theatre here. It’s one of the old kind, One screen, 130 seats on the main floor, and a balcony that used to be the best for "making out" with your date.
Two years ago they put an ad in the newspaper proclaiming that it now had, AIR CONDITIONING! Whooo hooo! I’m sure we’ll get the "indoor plumbin" real soon! LOL
What they don’t tell you is, I think the air conditioning is probably a "Flintstone" contraption. You know, a couple of guinea pigs running on a wheel which is attached to a cord that makes a fan blade go round and round in front of a big block of ice… either that or a window model and a fan in front of it….
Tuesday evening I took my youngest and her friends and we went to said theatre to see the latest "Pirates of the Caribbean" Movie.
My first mistake, OK, I admit it, I was being cheap, so we went on "Family Night," which means 2.50 per person admission. (Normally it’s 5.00 for an adult, and 2.50 for kids) So, it was us and 160 people. Every seat was full.
Did you know that Pirates is a long movie?? I didn’t. I’m enjoying the movie, we all were, but, it’s getting hotter and hotter.
I think I started to hallucinate from the heat. People were taking off their clothes and Captn’ Jack was talking to me. LOL
Actually I started to be sick to my stomach, so I went up to the concession area and stood in front of their fan, (singular).
The owners are really nice, and know me from when I worked downtown at the antique shop.
I think they were afraid I was going to pass out on them (I was beginning to wonder myself).
So I spent the last half hour watching the show from the concession area, peeking through the velvet curtains, fan blowing on me, and as much ice water as I wanted.
The movie is great, and even better, they felt so bad, I got free tickets to either go back and watch it another time, or see an up coming movie… I think I’ll wait till fall or winter, at least then I know to take a blanket with me.
Gotta love small town living! LOL BIG HUGS, Steph
OH, Monday was movie rental night. We saw, 16 Blocks with Bruce Willis. I enjoyed it, and it was suspensful. One negative, the young man who he was in charge of taking to the court house, has a voice that was so annoying I probably would have killed him myself just for speaking! LOL
I also rented, Underworld Evolution. I liked this one too, although I didn’t think they explained things very well, but, it was blood, guts, great costumes/make-up, and a sex scene that was pretty good considering. (A sex scene can be really, really hot, and still not show very much) I like those, with good chemistry and heat! An example I can think of right now. The Wedding Date, Debra Messing, Dermot Mulroney, the scene is he has her up against a car, not touching her, just talking (he has her close her eyes), it’s what he’s saying, how he’s saying it, and the allllmost touching, it was HOT. (I think he’s hot!) LOL Ahhhh seduction!
