It sounds like the women who weren't there with the men drank the "too delicate" kool aid.

We watched The Keep tonight. Boy was that badly done. Loved the book, and the whole Adversary cycle, but this movie had poor effects, bad script and bad editing. It felt like most of the movie wasn't there.

And it had some good names in it.

What's the last movie you watched?

I had to chuckle. When DH went back home to get his glasses (that ended up already being in the car) I ordered a small Arnold Palmer (half ice tea, half lemonade) and a small popcorn. Got out a five. Not enough, the bill was $8.50! DH got back and also ordered a small AP, $4! Small profit margin, I think! The ingredients probably cost 27 cents!

That's one of the reasons we almost always watch our movies at home. That, and our recliners are more comfy than any theater style seats AND that the guy in the control booth is always reluctant to stop the movie when I need a potty break. Himself never minds.

I figure it's going to be around $15 to go to the matinee by myself. It's $8.50 to get in, and I MUST have popcorn, which as Dawg mentioned, ups it another $5 or so for that ridiculously overpriced bag of popcorn. Usually I'll slip a couple of bottles of ice cold water in my purse because I'm not much of a soft drink fan anyway.

I figure I don't go out to restaurants much or go to bars, I don't travel, and going to the matinee for something I REALLY want to see on a quiet weekday when I'm one of just a few people there, is one of my few guilty pleasures. The sound is loud as heck until I get used to it, and even in the summer I bring a sweatshirt because they keep the theatuh so dang cold. LOL. The chairs are comfy, and I love sitting in the back row and feeling like it's a private viewing.

I'm really looking forward to seeing "Brooklyn". This sounds like a good one to me.
Brooklyn (2015) - IMDb

Eilis Lacey followed her sister, Rose's, plan to leave Ireland and find a better future and job in the US. She departs terribly, enduring seasickness and a terrible relationship with her cabin mates. A kind traveler gives her advice to live in Brooklyn, where many Irish immigrants live. Eilis settles in Brooklyn and becomes close to Father Flood, a Catholic priest. She gets a job in a department store and falls in love with an Italian boy named Tony. News from home sends Eilis back to Ireland, away from Tony.....

Yes, so loud and very cold! We kept our coats on, even though we'd dressed for the below zero temps to get to the theater. I still can't believe how lovely the chairs are, and how many features are there. DH gets the old fart discount for being over 60. I'll have to look for Brooklyn.

Ours is $8.50 for seniors (55+), children, matinees, and military. The general admission is $10.75, a little more for 3D. I've never seen a 3D film.

Plus of course, the arm and a couple of legs for snacks.

We didn't get DH's old fart discount for the Star Wars 3D. They did give it to him for Revenant. I don't get a discount yet. I think it was $9 for me, and $7 for DH. They make it up in the extortion they get for drinks and popcorn.

We saw the latest Jurassic Park, as well as the latest Star Wars, and both were excellent in 3D. Keep in mind, after you take off the 3D glasses, you walk like a drunken sailor for a few minutes.

Since I'm off of carbs I take a baggie of Chicharrones stuffed in my big purse with a bottle of water, as I'm not much on sodas either. It's cheap for me to go at $6.50 for seniors. I agree it's always cold in there, and in addition to my jacket I always take a light weight blanket for my legs I snitched off of some airline. I must sound like Maxine!!
