I figured... just wasn't sure what interjecting live theatre had to do with discussing movie matinees... boggles my mind.

On the subject of mantinees, I usually work evenings or nights, so being able to see a movie in the middle of the day is awesome. They lower the price to try and drag more people in, but overall I agree it is a weird philosophy.

That said my local 1st run charges $5 for a matinee and $7 for a regular ticket, so I can't complain. The big OMIPLEX downtown is like $13 a movie.
