I suppose I should retract/alter my full opinion of ‘art house’ theaters.
I don’t actually hate them, I was just in a real pissy mood Friday.
However, I have to say that the ByTown isn’t anything special, and maybe my hatred of Friday was mostly directed at that specific theater.
I have to say, if A Scanner Darkly was playing just about anywhere else, I might not have minded so much. Sure, I would have been pissy, but maybe not as much.
I remember going to the Mayfair and really enjoying myself. However, it appears to have gone the way of second-run over pure art-house. But I have to say, they’re schedule was much better.
Instead of playing for a week, it would attempt to break it up over the month.
That, and it’s 2 for 1, which is always keen.
And I have to say, I prefer the look of the Mayfair over the ByTown. Both are retro, but the ByTown just looks old and cheap, whereas the MayFair looks old and elegant.
Maybe my perception is just a little wonky.
The seats at the ByTown do kinda kick ass, if only it wasn’t for the plastic headrests(kinda sweaty).
The movie was good, a must see. However, I’m not sure it’s a must ‘on the big screen’ see.
I’m talking to a customer that sounds a lot like Emo Williams. A. Lot.
