I still go to the theater I went to when I was a kid. Small screen, small seats - some have been reupholstered, some need it. The same two guys still work there, twenty-five years later. Honestly, I don't know why the place hasn't been condemned. The building is about 100 years old; someone wrote an editorial about the condition, complaining that the rain fell into her lap while she was watching the movie! Never happened to me. They paint over the stained ceiling tiles instead of replacing them.
Why do I go? It's an independent theater, and they don't always show first run movies. But, the seat price is $3 and they show films that aren't popular enough for the chain theaters. They showed White Christmas during Christmas time a couple of years ago. Sadly, only 7 people were at the show I attended, so they won't get it again.
The floor there is so sticky; I think it's the Coke I spilled there in 1974! Lately, I've seen people there eating McDonald's food; they don't mind if you don't buy their concessions.
