As we sat enjoying our food I happened to look out the window and notice that there was an outlet center across the street. A large sign listed the stores available and, at the bottom, a small notice said "Cinema VII".
I wondered what kind of movies would be showing at an outlet cinema so, after paying the astonishingly small check, we took a walk over.
Here is what I found.
- All the movies seemed to be either 29 minutes or 9 1/2 hours long ("Yeah, we had some 2 hours films last week, but they went pretty fast").
- Several came in only one color ("We've got Godfather III in red, House of Wax in green, and I Am Curious in yellow").
- Quite a few were missing some features that you think would be pretty standard ("Well, you didn't expect to get a soundtrack at these prices, did you?")
Unfortunately, we didn't have time to see a movie that day - although I was tempted by a silent, 29 minute, all blue version of Titanic - but as we drove away I made a mental note to stop on the way back just to check what the new inventory looked like.
Who knows? I might find a real bargain.
