By the way, John, we saw Harry Potter on Saturday night in Spruce Grove.  If you liked 
the first you should like the second.  Contrariwise, likewise, I'm sure.  The theatre 
has been selling out on Fridays and Saturdays for this movie.  For us it's a great 
deal because they have a family rate: $28Cdn for the whole family, not just a weak 
definition of one (2 adults and 2 children).  That's about $17.64US for 9 people, or 
less than 2 bucks US each.  Compare that with the top of the line Silver City theatre 
in the West Edmonton Mall where you will pay $13.95Cdn each for an evening show.  
Fortunately, they have matinee prices of "only" $8.50 so I can view "The Two Towers" 
in all its splendiferous glory without breaking the bank.

Our little theatre in Spruce Grove is one of the last of the old-fashioned 
single-screen theatres, but it has enough of a local/regional base to keep it going in 
the face of the more dramatic presentation from the gigaplex and the IMAX, etc., etc., 
at the West Edmonton Behemoth.
