New theater captures moviegoers’ interest

It’s a toss up when going to the movies. Do you drive farther to look for a parking spot almost aimlessly and sit next to strangers, or do you go close by and sit in an almost 90 degree angle seat with no cup holders, and your feet glued to the ground because of the coke that spilled last week and the JuJuBes that some punk kid put in his mouth and then threw to see if it would stick to anything. But really, it’s a tossup.

At least it was until December when Rave Motion Pictures opened The Rave, the hot new spot for moviegoers.
