During intermission time at cineplexes, there’s always a huge crowd milling around the refreshments counter. Long lines, hustling buying, frowned faces..kinda takes the sheen away from the movie experience.
Over the past few years, I’ve always managed to managed to get to my popcorns and Pepsis without the hassle. How? Simple. I always walk to another movie screen’s refreshment counter within the building. Thanks to the varied timings in cineplexes, the ‘interval’ timings don’t clash. So, even if it means walking a stair up, it makes life easier buying from the nearly empty food stall without having to deal with the crowd.
As I walk back to my movie hall with stuff in my hand, I can’t help but pity my fellow movie watchers who are still busy hustling and jostling. Tch tch.
