In the 90s, I was a high school student and went to the movies almost every weekend. This was back when you prayed a tall person didn't sit in front of you, orange and brown carpet lined the walls, and tickets averaged $4. Going to the movies was simple and hassle free. Today, the movies is synonymous with large crowds, long lines, and struggling to find side-by-side seats. This weekend, Jimmy and I intentionally sought out a theater off the beat and path. We were delighted to find that such theaters have the retro charm of the 90s that we love! We avoided crowds, shared buttered popcorn and enjoyed the movie Salt. I relished in the fact that we were 2 of 8 in the movie room, so I even got to kick up my feet. Thank you "dive" theaters around the country for keeping the movie experience simple and nostalgic.
