At first glance I thought (SLIDESHOW) said (SHITSHOW) and I thought yep, that accurately sums up how traffic is going to be.

However, hypocritically, I'm down for an in-town movie theater that isn't Atlantic Station or the Midtown art theater.

The South DeKalb Cinemas are not "in-town", but they're the closest to EAV for now - and the ticket prices are much cheaper!

Who said anything about traffic? According to the slideshow there will only be six or seven BMW drop tops in the Publix parking lot.

The prices at South DeKalb are stupid cheap, but there's also a 50/50 chance you'll end up in a tiny, musty theater with no stadium seating.

Oh! I guess I've just been lucky. I've always ended up in the theaters with stadium seating and tables between each pair of seats! And it's always been nice and cool in there.

Yes, I agree, with that I knew someone close that smoked and went to chewing tobacca. Used a spit can which was yuck, and then the door of his car.~Denise

And all the cars are BMW, Audi, or Benz - mostly convertibles!

Some truly archetypal Americans here, eh?

Hey, that was supposed to be a Sprouts, not a Publix! : (

Also, FYI, the closest movie theater is the Starlight Drive In.

yeah but the new management is running the starlight into the ground so really, it doesnt count even though technically it is closest.

bingo.
I would like them to  :diaf:, before the place completely fades away.
I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence or insanity but they've always worked for me.
