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