Everyone agrees that the movie theater experience isn't what it used to be: the floors are grubbier, texting is commonplace, the movies are dimmer. But one thing I continue to value are the ticket stubs. I've been saving each and every movie stub since 1989, when I saw Back to the Future Part II. (I still find it hilarious that that was the first film I chose to memorialize.) Every so often I open the tin to recall the experiences. Like the time I saw Groundhog Day on Valentine's Day after a terrible argument with my boyfriend. Or the time I walked out of the interminable Late for Dinner to sneak into Terminator 2: Judgment Day instead. Or simply the fact that I saw Boxing Helena in the theater. So I hope theaters don't become extinct just yet, if only for the sake of future memories.
