The plan of the new owners for the Minor Theater is great news for film lovers ("Return of the Minor," Feb. 18). However, I have two reservations. Serving food and beverages during the movie might be profitable and might attract patrons, but how can this be anything other than distracting and interruptive?
Also, I'm not sure about children attending movies not intended for kids. I stopped going to the movies after a miserable experience trying to watch a three-and-a-half-hour long Kurosawa epic with unsupervised children disturbing viewers. So while I'm thrilled by the prospect of wonderful programming, I'm curious to see how the actual movie-watching experience goes under these conditions.
