“Get a move on, we need to get there early.”
It was a 30-minute drive to the theater.
Although the movie had been there for two weeks, the line stretched around the corner.
“Ya got kids? You know you won’t make the 5:30 showing, don’cha?”
It started to rain.
The line started to move at 5:15. Would we make it?
The door closed just before we entered. At least we’d make the 8 PM showing.
It rained harder.
“Hey, the new movie is at the 25-screen-multiplex.”
“What and wait in line for 5 minutes? It’ll be streaming in a month.”
Word count = 100
Does anyone remember waiting in line, sometimes for hours, to see a hit movie like Jaws or Star Wars (The movie once known only as “Star Wars”, no other name or number needed)? Yeah, the good old days ;)
