Movie time

Today (Sunday) we decided to go to the movies and had no idea what to expect. Surprisingly, the experience was almost identical to going to the movies back home, apart from the price. For $2.50 each we got to select a reserved seat in an air-conditioned 150 seat Dolby Surround cinema, to watch a new release movie (The Merchant of Venice, starring Al Pacino) in absolute comfort, with around 12 other people. Two Pepsis and popcorn cost another $2.50. I also noticed the snack bar had beer in the fridge next to the spring water and sodas. All in all, a very nice surprise. They have Gold Class cinemas here as well, so we will definitely be checking those out soon, especially at these prices.

I guess the prices have to be so low in order to entice people to venture out from their homes, given that you can buy pirated DVDs for $1. I bought the entire first 5 seasons (20 DVDs) of The Sopranos for $15, and the quality is the real deal. I suppose I should feel guilty about that.
