I never understood what the big deal was about…
Well, my first answer was actually last week’s prompt… CONCERTS. But I don’t want to do a repeat, so I’ll come up with a new answer.
I don’t see the big deal about going to opening day at the movies. Every Monday, we hear the box office topping the previous week. But why?
I walk into Costco and 10 of them are on display, almost all of them larger than the 55″ one. You know how I know this, because each one has an outline of a 55″ television just so that you know how small your TV is compared to the one they are selling.
Movie theater prices are outrageous! One night with hubs, a drink and snack each can easily run you $40. That’s $40 for soda that you can get by the can for 25 cents and old nachos. Yes, they are improving and are great if you want to get to the theater an extra 20 minutes early to get in line and for them to prepare it pop it in the microwave.
Plus as parents, we need to find a sitter, as if that was free.
With Redbox, Amazon, and Netflix, if you wait a whole maybe two months, you could get it for $1.30 instead of $24!
What’s the point? If you skip a few of the theater movies, you could actually afford the giant screen in home, no babysitter needed, good food having night of entertainment!
This has been another edition of Finish the Sentence Friday!
By the way, I don’t feel that strongly about the movies, but do spend a lot of time utilizing Redbox and Netflix. I enjoy taking in the occasional blockbuster on the gigantic screens, for the “experience”.
