Double Feature: The Secret Revealed!

I will go so far as to reveal the dirty little details of our double feature today, although I think only the thickest among you are still in the dark. We snuck into the second film.

Yeah, yeah. I know it's akin to theft, but no one really gets hurt. And with ticket prices at $10 a head and soda at $5 for just a medium, who's really getting robbed? We're just taking it back for the people.

No. We don't make it a habit. This is probably the first time in the last two years that we've theater hopped. But sometimes...well, it's just fun! It gets your adrenaline pumping a little bit, lets you feel like you're breaking the law when you really aren't doing much of anything, and makes going to the movies even more exciting. Plus you get your movies at half price.

Would we have stayed for the second film if we'd had to pay for it? Nope. So no real loss in revenue for the theater. The theater was maybe a quarter full, so we weren't taking seats paying patrons might have occupied.

Ah screw it. I don't need to make excuses. We hopped theaters, lived on the edge (of a very small hill) and had fun. And that's that. Any of you that have theater hopped before know exactly what I'm talking about.

The illicit double feature...a great way to spend a Saturday.
