Las Cruces sucks almost as much as Huntingdon, PA did for seeing a movie. Specifically, the problem is a lousy chain called Allen Theaters. First, they show commericals before the movie. I boycott any theater that does that. Second, they don’t sell tickets online. Third, and this is what really pissed me off this morning, they are cash-only. I was willing to swallow the first one because I really want to see Cars. The second doesn’t matter too much, though I had hoped to get a free ticket with my Diet Pepsi promotional codes. The third I didn’t know about, as the last time I saw a movie there I was watching March of the Penguins on a free pass after giving blood. Now how the hell in this day and age can you go cash-only? So I’m going to continue never going there. I don’t care if you are a chain that’s been locally in the state for nearly a century, I hope Century Theatres puts a theater down here in Las Cruces and eats your lunch because they actually know how to run a business in this freaking century without pissing me off.
So now my choices are to either drive to El Paso (and I hate El Paso) spending twice as much on gas as I would on a ticket or wait three weeks and see Cars on my next trip to Albuquerque. So I’ll be seeing Cars sometime in July. Fuck you, Allen Theaters.
