The parking lot is full—but then it’s Friday night at the movies after all. We don’t do this very often anymore. With the kids we usually prefer matinees to evening shows: fresher popcorn...unless the theatre cheaps out and sells us day-old kernels that is.
But the truth is I’m not a fan of moviegoing anymore. What used to be a special event now feels more like a chore—the picture isn’t all that great (we’re usually forced to 3D), the sound is too loud, the trailers never end, you get kicked in the back of your seat, people talk and sneeze and make noises...meh. And the popcorn/drinks? $80 for the five of us—and we shared.
In 2019, there’s no place like home.
