By the end of the month, I'm told, my favourite movie theatre will be closed. I am heartbroken.

My husband and I have seen dozens of movies at the Hollywood Theatre. Sometimes not even because we were really jazzed about the feature, but because there is something tremendously comforting about octogenarians in the ticket booth, a $7 double bill, a delicious nanaimo bar, and a theatre so elegantly disheveled that it makes the very act of watching movies seem just a little bit more special.

(Also, we saw Incendies, which was incredible - I'm too speechless to write about it....and how does one write about it at all, without ruining it, I wonder?).

Goodnight Hollywood. We will miss you.
