Dear editor, Kudos and a tip o' the hat to Danny Edwards for his entrepreneurial spirit in keeping local theatre alive in Georgetown. When Ontario Cinemas 3 closed its doors, Danny recognized that many of the younger children and seniors, who did not wish to travel out of town, wanted this source of entertainment. Under his ownership Edwards Theatres has provided our community with quality movies second to none. At any time we can see first-run movies at all three of the theatres. At no time are X-rated films shown. The price of admission for all is far below that of the larger out-oftown venues. Parents, if not accompanying their children, can drop them off on weekend afternoon while they shop at the nearby mall. The drive to our local movie house is less than 10 minutes from most points. Some of the older kids actually walk to and from, enabling them to get much-needed exercise. I have, on occasion, attended one of these state-of-the-art theatres. The sound was so loud I thought my ear drum would break. The trailer of upcoming shows was a ridiculous 30 minutes long before the feature began. I guess that was included in the exorbitant price of admission. For seniors, Danny has featured some classic films, as well as special movies for some of our elementary schools as fundraisers. Most recently fundraisers have been held at his theatre, the proceeds of which went to CAS-hh, Credit Valley Hospital and the Canadian Cancer Society. While we would all welcome more comfortable seating, this is a small price to pay for what we do have. Support by all residents would bode well for Mr. Edwards' plans for expansion.

d'Entremont, Kay
