Why such a light crowd? I have four theories:
- The movie's been out for quite awhile, and will probably be released on DVD Real Soon Now. The site where I normally go to buy movies - dvduniverse.com - simply says "Theatrical Release, Not Yet Available".
- It's Father's Day. Not that I have anything to celebrate there. My own father's been buried - about 900 miles from here - since 1976. Nor am I a father myself. Well, except to Beta the Wonder Dog, who still calls me "daddy" in her dreams.
- School's out for summer. Everyone's at the beach.
- There's a reason this is not showing at one of the major theatres: it's a satiric movie, which is lost on 98.3% of the population.
Unrelated #0: it rained about 2/3 inch yesterday. This was the first measurable rain in 38 days. I wonder if it'll be another 38 days until the next one?
Unrelated #1: last night, Beta and I watched Napoleon Dynamite. It is, without question, the Finest Motion Picture of All Time.
