Speaking of the Movies

Well, I was speaking of the movies a few days ago...

I can't believe that the Southdale 16 was bought out by AMC! Sure it was a megaplex, but they always tried to have more of the so-called "arthouse" flicks mixed in with the blockbusters.

I guess the only good news in that is they will probably close the AMC Centennial Lakes theatres, about two blocks south. That sad little theatre is too new to get sentimental over, and General Cinemas was already running it into the ground before they were bought out by AMC. Last time I was there the carpet in the lobby was coming up, and there was a blown speaker in the auditorium.

I really don't want the Lagoon & Uptown to be my only option for many of the movies I want to see...
