FEELING WAY BEHIND THE TIMES
Yesterday my daughter and I went to the movies to see Little Women. It was the first time I'd gone to a movie theater in years, and I was dumbstruck at the changes that have taken place since then.
No more sitting wherever you please. Seats are assigned when you buy your ticket, or can be reserved in advance.
No snacks or drinks are allowed in the auditorium other than those purchased at the concession stand--not even water, which is outrageously priced at almost $5.00 a bottle.
And the concession stand is no longer just a stand. The choices are flabbergasting, and include a full food and liquor menu.
Is this how it is everywhere else as well, or just in my neck of the woods?
The auditorium held some surprises as well. Cushy reclining chairs on rows raised high enough that no one has to worry about not being able to see over some tall person's head--a most welcome feature for short people like me.
I really enjoyed the movie, and the scenery was gorgeous. Definitely two thumbs up!
