We don't often go to the theater. Terry HATES to go. But from the first time I saw the trailer for this movie I knew I wanted to see it in a theater in full screen and theater sound. When I brought the movie to Terry's attention he agreed. We saw it the second day it was released and it was amazing. Before we entered the building, I heard people that were leaving say it was gory. Yes, it was a bloody show in places. But it was so very well acted and the cinematography was absolutely amazing. We definitely agreed that we want to see it again, but will probably wait until we can watch at home.
We are lucky that we have a theater about 1/2 hour drive away located in Niles Michigan called the Wonderland. Terry and I have been going there for more than 25 years. Showings before noon are $3, noon to 6 are $4, and after 6 the ticket price jumps to $5. A large bag of popcorn and two large drinks cost $6.50. The concessions for popcorn and pop are self serve and on the honor system that you will pay for refills. I'm not sure, but I think that there are 6 theaters. You can order tickets on line which includes selecting the seat you want to sit in which I highly recommend. As you might suspect the theaters are small and if you go when a movie is first released you could arrive and find it sold out. I think prices in our area for the chain theaters is about $10 per person with a bag of popcorn and a large drink costing $13.
Terry enjoyed it so much, I'm sure we will be going out to see movies more often!!
