The Hottest Thing in Provo

Do you know what the hottest thing in Provo is? It can't be found in any singles ward, and it isn't the omeletes at the Utah Valley Medical Center. Since that really narrowed it down and you have it figured out (actually, if you really knew me you might actually be able to guess it) I will just say it: The Dollar Theater. I am not talking about the one by Costco, if that one is even still there. The last time I was there the much-motivated cleaning employee swept up approximately six kernels of popcorn before retiring to... somewhere else. Then the theater was packed with young adolescents and the movie started 20 minutes late. But, the Cinemark dollar theater in Provo is da bomb. Four years ago I attended the theater twice a week, seeing such blockbusters as Princess Diaries II and Anacondas 2: Search for the Blood Orchid staring J.Lo, in her prime. I have since backed down to only weekly attendance, but the enjoyment is still in full bloom. Thanksgiving week I saw Ghost Town and City of Ember, last week I saw Batman: The Dark Knight and this week I went to Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist. Space is not sufficient to review all those flicks, but I will say it's hard to not be satisfied for getting 2 hours of entertainment for $1. I mean really, no matter how bad the movie is, (and Nick and Norah's Infinte Playlist was pretty bad) you can always walk away and say to your friend, well, I think that was adequately priced! As long as you are patient, all movies will come to the Dollar Theater. They will be worth the dollar. Trust me. And if you are ever looking for something to do in Provo, just hit me up and we'll go see a movie, on me. Smiley Face!
