Movie Theaters like they used to be

A few times a year we go to the Kew Gardens Theater, a 10 minute ride from Flushing. This is a movie theater like they were a generation ago. Since it has 4 or 5 screens it is still a multiplex but it is located in a residential area with a marquee. They show independent films suited for an older audience. It was really strange to see a working telephone booth in the lobby. When was the last time you saw a phone booth?

Since I was intrigued by the title, we saw City Island . It is part of the Bronx connected to the mainland by a bridge. Back in 1985 I went to a restaurant there to celebrate the marriage of my father-in-law Will to Betty. I will leave it up to my readers to click on the link from IMDB to read about the movie. I did enjoy it.
