We won’t be in hurry to go to the movies

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION - RE: Movie night

We went to the cin­ema to see “Dunkirk” the other night. I am em­bar­rassed to ad­mit I didn’t know the his­tory of Dunkirk but I did ed­u­cate my­self be­fore we went. It was a sober­ing re­minder of how hor­rific war is. And yet the world never seems to learn that les­son.

How­ever, I was re­minded of why we sel­dom go to see a movie any­more (aside from the fact there are not a lot of qual­ity movies to see these days).

Ad­mis­sion was rea­son­able the charge be­ing $6.99 for se­niors. The to­tal at the con­ces­sion stand was $22.20 for two small pop­corn, a small soft drink and a wa­ter.

Af­ter be­ing seated you are sub­jected to end­less com­mer­cials and trail­ers. It’s so an­noy­ing.

The whole place was packed, though, so I guess I’m wrong. But it will be a long time be­fore we go back. Pat Stevens, Hamil­ton
