Going to the movies

I think the last time I went to a movie in a movie theatre was before I started my master's degree in 1997. I know that sounds like an exaggeration, but I really think that's true. If I went to a movie with you, would you please email me and remind me. Even if I did go to the movies in the last 10 years, it has only been once or twice. It's very safe to say that I rarely go to the movies in the theatre.

But now that I've finished that dissertation . . . I've been 3 times in Farmington!! The theatre is close, there's rarely a line, the seats are comfy, and the price is incredibly reasonable. Best of all . . . I have time to do it! And can go guilt free. :-)

In February I saw Dream Girls**, in March we went to Bridge to Terabithia, and Thursday night, in the middle of all the Friday the 13th snow, we went to see Firehouse Dog. There were probably 10 people there and 1 employee. So Judy, the assistant manager would sell a few tickets, then go work the concession stand, then go start a movie, then come back. She was very nice and efficient. It was kind of fun. How small town can you get, eh? We were the only ones in our theatre. We talked during the movie and laughed out loud whenever we wanted to because we could.

BTW, I can highly recommend all three of those movies.
