It was the ugliest grand house theater in history.

My sibling had told myself and others she was going to have a grand house theater built in her basement! I pictured raised seats, a snacks machine, a giant viewing screen, and a film projector, then she talked about how nice the grand house theater was going to be, and to be honest, I was hoping to watch some of our number one films there, then for 6 weeks, I listened to her rave about her grand house theater, and I was getting as happy as she already was… When the premiere arrived, I couldn’t wait to get to her house.

She said she was viewing a single of our number one Halloween films, however the people I was with and I always loved going to showings of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, and I had already dressed as my number one character, just for the preview.

When I got to her house, she was dressed up in costume, and so was her partner. They took myself and others down into the basement, and I had to paste a smile on. It was the ugliest grand house theater in history, in my estimation. They had an 70” screen TV set on the wall, and a store purchased DVD of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. There were some comfy looking chairs scattered around the area, but unless you were right in front of the TV set, you couldn’t see well. There was no snacks component and no carpeting on the floor. I recognize it was all the hype that had myself and others disappointed, although I expected something more than seeing a film on the TV set. She was so excited, and I didn’t have the heart to say anything other than comment on how nice everything looked.
