I was recently in Williams Lake to visit family and friends (my husband was born and raised in Williams Lake) and on a rainy Saturday we decided to take in a matinee at Paradise Cinemas.
Coming from the Lower Mainland, where almost all local and independent theatres have been shut down, we were heartened by the ability to see a current release (Rock of Ages) at a reasonable price ($7) in a comfortable sized theatre.
We were concerned, however, at how few people were there with us. There were six people viewing the show and only a smattering of people in line to see the other offerings.
I really hope the people of Williams Lake patronize this theatre or you will lose it as we in the Lower Mainland have and, as the saying goes, you really don’t know what you are missing until it is gone.
