We also made a mess in theatres

RE: Shame on the movie theatre lit­ter­ers (Feb. 11)

I am a se­nior that has a very dif­fer­ent mem­ory on how well be­haved our gen­er­a­tion was. I grew up in Toronto and on a Satur­day af­ter­noon we went to the theatre. Fam­i­lies were larger so you would be in a group. It was rare to see an adult in the theatre. We paid to see these Brated movies. I do re­mem­ber The Blob and the theatre was packed.

At the end of the movie to show our ap­proval we would stand up and scream. Then we would take our empty pop­corn boxes and throw them up in the air. The place was a huge mess when we left. As an adult, I have never been to a theatre that equalled the mess we left. Colleen Har­ri­son, Hamil­ton
