It’s Not That Nashville is Country but where else can you drive to a cinema showing 12 good movies and be the only ones there? Granted it was a Thursday evening at 10pm, but on the way into the theater I counted 8 cars in the parking lot… and that included the employees! Considering these 12 movies show 4 or 5 times a day, it would not be far fetched for there to be a lot more cars there!Ã‚Â But the best was still to come.
We paid our $6 a piece for tickets (Amy had a discount) to go see Transformers. We got there 25 minutes early thinking it may be busy. We have become so used to the city and the fact that if you are not there early, you will not get 2 seats together, that we always show up early. We ended up sitting in a theater built for about 50 people all alone. We watched Transformers all alone. But the best is still to come.
As we exited the building, no other shows were playing. No concessions were being served. No attendant was in the lobby. The lights were turned down and the place had already been cleaned. We were the only people in the building. We let ourselves out and noticed we were the only car in the lot… so we made sure to push the door shut and locked.
We proceeded to our car and did a lap around the building where we found one other car in the lot. We thought that we may have been the last ones out, but most likely a high school kid would follow us out and shut the building down for the night.
So it’s not that Nashville is country… it’s just a lot smaller than we remember, and obviously shuts down a lot earlier as well. I grew up in a town where you could go to the theater for $1.50. That was country. But the theaters were still always packed. Sorry, no photos. I did not know it was going to be an adventure.
