Just finished watching the bootleg Doctor Who episode “Impossible Planet” (bootleg because it’s not available on this side of the Pond but I’ve already seen the episodes on SciFi Channel).  I find it peculiar that nobody on the Wikipedia site or elsewhere finds the appearance of the Ood to be at all Chthulhu-like. Seriously, how can you look at these guys and not say, “H.P. Lovecraft, your table is ready?”

As you can see from the latest listings from Google, we have (as of this writing) eight total movies playing in the city of San Angelo. The closest city, Abilene, is approximately 20 percent larger than San Angelo, and has two dozen movies playing today, in five theaters, including a drive-in (!). We, on the other hand, have one theater, consisting of 14 screens. On those 14 screens, 8 movies. Way to maximize the available resources. There are eighteen showings of X-Men, eleven of the Da Vinci Code, and ten of Over the Hedge. Shaggy Dog? Nope. Benchwarmers? Nope. Curious George? Been and gone.
Akeelah and the Bee? You must be joking. Hoot? They don’t give one. Thank You For Smoking? Not a chance.

In the past two years, we’ve lost two theatres, which combined had eleven screens. We’ve also lost any semblance of competition for cinema. Think the lack of competition has affected the attitude of our sole remaining movie house?
