Hello future readers,
On Saturday afternoon, Cheryl and I went to the movies. We had a super time!
Since our town of Springfield is so small, we only have one drive-in theatre, and one movie house. Our movie house is really small and only features one movie at a time.
We usually get our movies after all the bigger towns have already seen them. Sometimes, they have older movies, because it takes so long for them to get shown on television. It's cheaper to get into the older movies, which is why we had enough money to go! We were in luck, 'cos they were playing "The Revenge Of Dr. E. !" Outta site! I've been wanting to see that one since right before Christmas!
As we walked up to the movie house, we saw Susan and Raychel waiting for us.
They were super excited, because not only were we finally gonna get to see this movie, but today it was in 3-D! Far out! To watch a 3-D movie, you have to wear special glasses they give you in the theatre. They make things look like they're jumping right out at you! I've only seen one other 3-D movie when I went to my cousin's house 2 years ago. It was super cool! I took a look at the poster for "Dr. E.". Man, is he ever creepy looking!
Well we got our tickets, got some snacks, and went inside. Danny and Jason were already there. I figured as much. They've been talking about this movie ever since they showed the trailers on T.V. last December
I was so excited, I almost forgot to get my 3-D glasses! Anyway, after we were all settled, the usher told us to put on our 3-D glasses. He also said that if we had to get up to go to the bathroom, that we should take them off, because wearing them when you're not watching the movie can make you dizzy.
Here are some scenes from "The Revenge of Dr. E.!"
Wow, was it ever a terrific movie! It was all about this lady scientist who gives some secret plans to Captain Amazing for safe keeping. And then Dr. E. kidnaps her! He radios Captain Amazing to come to his lair and give him the plans or he'll feed the scientist to his man-eating tiger! Then Captain Amazing and Dr. E. have this showdown and Captain Amazing zaps Dr. E. and his tiger with his sleep gun and rescues the scientist! When it came to the part where the lady scientist gives Captain Amazing a kiss to thank him, Danny and Jason started booing! Those turkeys!
I love going to the movies. Cheryl doesn't think they are any more movie theatres in the future. She thinks it'll be like on "The Jetsons" and a movie screen will come down from the ceiling in your living room and you can watch at home. I like watching T.V. at home, but there's just something special about going to the movies; sitting in the dark watching that great big screen, eating popcorn and candy with a crowd of other people. And when a really good part comes on, everyone claps and cheers. You can't get that at home. I hope Cheryl's wrong and there are movie theatres in the future. It's a groovy way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
Until next time, future readers,
