Dear Editor, Cave of Forgotten Dreams

, May 20]. Too bad it was showing at the Violet Crown. The first Sunday that it was showing, we drove down to the Crown from Georgetown to find out that the theatre only holds about 20 seats, it was sold out, and the price for two senior tickets was $28. They don’t seem to want to recognize seniors there, and didn’t seem to care if we saw the 3-D movie or not. I later found out that features during weekdays were priced at only $9 each, but still with no senior discount. So, we tried it again this Friday, July 15. We again drove from Georgetown to the Downtown Crown and, this time, found that our showing was canceled.
We got a refund, but wasted most of the day and a lot of fuel. No senior discount, extremely high ticket prices, and unreliable service. The Violet Crown sucks. There will soon be a time when even the trendy people hanging around the theatre will find a new place to show off. Nothing will make me happier than seeing the Crown close its doors.
