A good thought, Al! If I weren’t in LA, I’d take you up on that offer, though I have seen Million Dollar Baby already.
This said, I hope you, and others reading these postings, will read what Libby offers above—and join her in the struggle.
We may win, we may not, but, again, how appropriate that the “last” movie at the Coronet is about a fighter. I think this is a cause getting in the ring about, not throwing in the towel just yet.
I mourn with the rest of you. This is where I saw Star Wars, Grease, American Gigolo, 9 to 5, Yentle, and any number of films throughout the years. (I went to Roosevelt Middle School across the street; the Coronet was equal partner in my education.)
Ironic, is it not, that the Coronet is being turned into a home for the aged? After all, individual, “single screen” theatres are regarded as dinosaurs in a world of multi-screen MegaPlexes.
Can it be any surprise then that, in the world of Corporate monsters, individual losses continue to mount?
