“Theatre” is so much cooler than “theater” because of the whole transposed “r” and “e” and because it makes it seem like you’re going to see something intelligent and such.
The only problem is, while people can see you type it the cool, fancy way, they can’t really tell when you’re saying it that way. I think “theatre” should be said as “Thee-A-TAR!” That way, people will know you’re heading to the THEE-A-TAR for some quality artistic movies and not just seeing The Dark Knight Rises for the 13th time.
Not sure if this will change anything, but it’s worth noting…
The Rave Theater in Center Valley, Lehigh Co., will have to change its signs and color schemes soon.
Carmike Cinemas of Columbus, Ga., announced Monday that it is buying 16 Rave theaters in seven states and 13 individual markets, including the one at the Promenade Shop.
The Rave in Center Valley is the only one in Pennsylvania that will become a Carmike property.
According to Carmike officials, the purchase price consists of $19 million in cash, and more than $100 million of assumed lease obligations and financing obligations.
“The addition of these 16 state-of-the-art theatres and 251 screens from Rave is a key, opportunistic development for Carmike as we recently embarked on a corporate mission of expanding our footprint to 300 theatres and 3,000 screens through attractive acquisitions,” said Carmike President and CEO David Passman.
Carmike already operates a 16-screen theater on Catasauqua Road in Allentown, the Coventry 8 Theatre on Schuylkill Road in Pottstown, and the Wyomissing 8 Theatre on Berkshire Road in Reading. SOURCE: WFMZ.com
I never really gave it much thought, but I guess I’d pick Rave over Carmike. Carmike just seems a bit more low rent. Rave has all this neon going on. So, that makes me think they know how to have fun. Also, their chairs are more comfy and I’m pretty sure they enforce their camera rules.
You should honestly be given a night in jail if you answer your cell phone in the theater. And like two nights if you answer it in a theatre.
