Filmgoers get a taste of the good life

Variety reports that new mega-luxury theaters are in the developing stages.

A recession may be looming, but a group of investors thinks Americans are ready to pony up $35 for a movie ticket.

Um, no.

Each complex will sport theaters featuring 40 reclining armchair seats with footrests, digital projection and the capability to screen 2-D and 3-D movies, as well as a lounge and bar serving cocktails and appetizers, a concierge service and valet parking.

Um, still no.

But the circuit will especially push its culinary offerings -- made-to-order meals like sushi and other theater-friendly foods from on-site chefs (a service button at each seat calls a waiter). Moviegoers will have to pay extra for any food they order, however.

Um, definitely no.

"The demand for luxury moviegoing in the U.S. is very strong, and by working with our partners, we are delivering on that demand in a way never before experienced by the American consumer," said Kirk Senior, CEO of Village Roadshow Gold Class Cinemas.

Well, good luck to you, but you won't be seeing me shelling out that much cash just to go out to a movie.

Am I alone here?

RIP Sir Arthur C Clarke

Science fiction writer Sir Arthur C Clarke has died aged 90 in his adopted home of Sri Lanka, it was confirmed tonight.


Marking his “90th orbit of the sun” in December, the author said he did not feel "a day over 89" and made three birthday wishes: for ET to call, for man to kick his oil habit and for peace in Sri Lanka.

Rest in peace.

I never would have heard of Spirit of the West had I not moved so close to the Canadian border. This is a fun song that reminds me of my buddies in graduate school ;-) Enjoy!
