Changing Times…

I have always loved going to the movies. I love everything about it. Sitting in a theater perhaps dinner afterwards or before. Even though the price of a ticket can be really steep, to me there is nothing like going out and seeing a film.

When I was growing up Flatbush Avenue was home to at least four or five theaters. They were great. Most if not all had balconies and there was one theater that showed  independent and foreign films. That was an indication of what the neighborhood was like.

Now it seems this too is disappearing. Apparently real estate has become too expensive and along with Hogs and Heifers, can’t afford the rent. Another victory for Condo Cancer over our disappearing culture.
