OH, how I’ve missed going to the cinema!
On an evening at the movies recently, I sank into my seat and scrunched my face, flummoxed. “Why are the seats like this?” I asked, turning this way and that.”Is this a luxury theatre?”
Then, with my popcorn in hand, I stared at the huge screen in front of me and sank back into the plush seat, which, I have to add, was no ordinary seat. It was the double chocolate, hot fudge brownie sundae of movie theatre seats — a person-and-a-half-wide, motorised, reclining, La-Z-Boy-style chair, upholstered in glossy leatherlike material — and it represents one cinema chain’s great gamble on the future.
