At long last, the mall was demolished. Out of the ashes has emerged a decent outdoor Town Center with various restaurants, a few stores, and this lovely theater. Logan's movie choice was Home. His only request for the day was that I wear my hair in a ponytail. He knows how he likes his ladies. My brief review of the movie in case you're wondering: cute for about 30 minutes, dragged out and cheesy in the last 30 minutes, and maybe worth the video. Not an extensive review, I know, but it's about all you need to know. The theater, however, was definitely worth the trip and many more trips to come.
First of all, we had the entire theater to ourselves. We didn't plan it that way, but going to the movies, especially kids movies, in the middle of the week definitely has its benefits. The theater has roomy, soft reclining seats. With a press of a button, our backs went back and our feet went up.
The whole experience really made it worth leaving home to watch a movie. These days many homes have the big screen tvs with surround sound, making it hard to want to sit in uncomfortable chairs and squished between strangers. This took all of the comfort found at home and plopped it in the theater with a bigger screen and much bigger surround sound system. Our added plus was the unplanned private screening. It didn't take long at all before my little entertainer was up in the aisles dancing to the songs. And, yes, I took out my phone...IN THE THEATER!!! I took pictures AND I texted them during the movie to Gary. I even left the flash on. Gasp!! So obnoxious, but there were no witnesses.
