Dear editor, I've heard a lot lately about the recent closing of the movie theatre. It is an unfortunate thing, but I think this would be a great opportunity to have a little upgrade on the whole movie theatre situation. I'm not asking for a "big box store", or a "modern movie theatre", but a convenient-sized one like the one we had but with maybe a little modern twist. Recently I've read the letters to the editor and seen what a bunch of whiners Georgetown has--"A theatre? Get out of town", "Bigger is not better", and "Box stores not wanted". I understand what you all want, but it's 2007 people, what do you expect? Everything is high tech and almost every house has a flat screen TV. Now if a movie theatre is too costly, how about a pool hall? They don't appear too modern and they're convenient enough to place right here in Georgetown. And parents, I know that after getting the kids to school, driving to and from work and cooking dinner, driving your kids to Brampton or Mississauga to watch a two-hour movie isn't really on the to-do list. What I'm saying is a few modern conveniences never hurt anyone. And a few more clothing stores wouldn't either. Brianne K. Shirt, Georgetown ···
