Ever questioned where your grandparents go on a Tuesday. I can make this a very short blog. They go to the movies!
Maybe no other day is busy, but Tuesday when you pay $2. for a movie, who wouldn’t go. Two medium beverages and a bag of popcorn would bring your bill to about $20 for the matinee.
Here’s the danger, you will wait in line, but not necessarily to get into the show, the concession is a bottle-neck. Two employees do their very best to make every movie goer happy with snacks. The popcorn is inviting but at seven or eight dollars a bag, you feel as though you are buying shares in Jiffypop! I waited behind two people. The guy at the counter had ordered about 12 small beverages and 8 small popcorn. The woman in front of me turned and said, “You might want to go to the other line, I’m ordering for 5 people. Tuesday is great for our Group Home.” Thanks for the heads up!
Our movie was fun, Mama Mia – Here We Go Again. I can vaguely remember the first one from 2008, so this is a good re-visit of the original. It reminded me of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” in some respect, that would be the song and dance portion of the movie! Movie goers watch for the cameo from an original ABBA member, yes – he’s playing the piano. And trust me, you’ll want to visit Greece!
I was mystified by the people sitting to my left, who showed up late and then got up toward the end, but returned and then asked each other questions about the movie! Perhaps they went out for a pee or a smoke break, but gee whiz you missed most of the movie!
I guess at $2. you can do that!!
Currently, the movie line up at the Rainbow is pretty decent! Will there be a next time – YES! maybe even today!! https://www.tribute.ca/showtimes/theatre/rainbow-cinemas-golden-mile/rainbowr/
