Edwards Cinema San Marcos

Went there on Saturday to see Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Which is not my kind of movie but it wasn’t my turn to pick.

The place is large.

Features 18 screens, stadium seating, an old-school photo booth (where you step behind the curtain and make faces), a chance to screen trailers for upcoming movies and offer advice, concession stands and to keep you from running out of energy from the entrance all the way to your screen, there are candy dispensers along the way.

Okay, that is all pretty normal.

But here is the unexpected.

A digital scale in the restroom.

Just pop in a quarter and see (with precision) how much you weigh.

Are you kidding me?

Why would anyone have an urge to weigh himself or herself at a movie theatre?

Is the number going to be the deciding factor between the large popcorn or the small? Butter or no butter? Soda or water? Splitting the pack of red vines or getting your own box of candy?


By the by, enjoyed the movie, glad I went.

    You sure are a good sport; I'm sure my husband would be thrilled if I would see that flick with him. Now maybe I will!
