Ode to the Towne's cinema three


I think that I shall never see
A theatre lame as number three

Three whose tiny screen is prest
Against my eyes as though a test

Three that mocks my sense of worth:
Twice the price for half the mirth

Too high a cost at that deposit
To only quip, "Is this a closet?"

Three you've made many's fate
To look like cheapskates on a date

Oh fools why built you, number three
Twice as small as my TV?

  2. I was hoping you'd see this. I've been saving up this picture of Stevens for ages.

  3. I believe Stevens' lawyers will be contacting you shortly regarding clearance payments.

  5. Then and now - downtown Winnipeg. Captain America is the current feature. Do not wait to see it on the small screen.

  6. I used to run the projectors there back in the early 2000's. If I remember, Cinema 3 only had about 90-100 seats because of the parking stalls and dumpster out back. I wonder if they still have the old natural gas popcorn machine upstairs?
