The Case of the Empty Theater
When hubby & I eloped on Cape Cod (yeah, we're too weird to go to Vegas), we chose to take a day trip to Salem instead of heading out to Martha's Vinyard or Nantucket (see the weird theme here?). What a great town - but that's not what this post about it. So on the way back to the Cape we decided we'd stop and see The Mummy Returns at a theater we'd passed.
After the movie was over and we still had the post-freaky-mummy tingles we ventured out into the lobby. All the lights were off. ALL of them. No one stood at the ticket counter. Even the concession stand was shut down and quiet. It was totally bizarre!!!! Hubby and I were a little freaked out - this sort of thing does not happen in Chicago. No one else there seemed concerned. In fact, they all left.
And then - he blinked. I swear to God that picture of The Rock blinked at me!!!!
Needless to say, when the hubby came out of the bathroom I grabbed his hand and we raced out of there. Is that normal for theaters on the Cape to just close up after the last movie starts, leaving the patrons to let themselves out in total darkness?
Funny part? That isn't the creepiest thing that happened that day..... ;)
