Two days ago me and my dad and sister went to to a movie in Lake Placid New York. Lake Placid is home to a wonderful old movie theater called the "Palace". I'm sure some of the older people will remember the days when the theaters had big marquees with hundreds of lights on them. This was one of those theaters. When we arraived at the theater there was a big line out the door and you could almost feel the excitement building outside. We were going to see Star Wars at the theater and we slowly inched forward. The inside of theater looked like and Opera house. The walls were covered with big paintings and pictures of flowers. The ticket stand was a true classic and it seemed to shine. An old man in a clean and tidy uniform pointed us into the theater. The theater which we went into looked like and Opera house stage with a very tall ceiling. There were no coomercials as we sat there waiting an when the movie started thier were only 3 previews and no additional commercials for cars or food. I left the theater thinking how these theaters are a dying breed and how sad it is. America has truely lost some with our Big Multiplexs. Sometimes things change for the worse. Support your local small theater, enjoy them while you can.
