Nope, the thread is entitled "New Movie Theatre". There is no mention of fabulous...lol. I was glad to see it come to pass but I am not happy with ANY company who treat their employees in that manner. She won't have any trouble getting on with another company for sure. ps: be glad that I didnt get on this rant about Chinese connections....lol. (that kinda took my by surprise). I guess Walmart doesnt sell any Chinese made products...ya...right.

This is a little (ok..WAY) off topic and should probably move to the Giant FM/Country 100.7 thread but....

Let's start with a positive -- I'm turning over a new leaf.

Southy, I appreciate your direct candor and you have a point.

Newcap did come in and summarily clean house once the station was moved to the present location. I even agree that the timing and circumstances of that decision were suspect.

Now the station still retains staff that live in this area and spend their income here. Newcap leases space for their studios here, which adds up quickly. Country 100.7 helps local businesses advertise which assists in their growth, also adding dollars to the local economy etc etc etc. So Livewire's assertion that Newcap contributes to the local economy is mostly true.

The fact Dennis Walker or Stu Cross no longer pollute the airwaves with their inane observations doesn't change the fact that the radio station contributes to the local economy.

Rant over -- now someone move this thread over to the proper topic.

I'm told that "Looper" is a good watch, and that Joseph Gordon Levitt is proving to be a contender. Apparently he does an excellent job of nailing a younger version of Bruce Willis.

Wow! The new Penticton movie theater is amazing and many are seeing movies there. The sound, screens, seats and screen clarity are the best I've seen.

I agree 100% this is a wonderful facility. But really, aren't some of you going alittle overboard on this thread? It's a movie theatre that is in business to generate revenue. Yes, it's an entertainment venue, however, YOU pay for it. Let the hugfest end people. Landmark can purchase advertising for this facility just like every other business out there. They don't need the likes of you giving them free advertising. Do you get excited when a new car dealership opens? A new clothing store? Come on now ... it's a theatre that is in business to MAKE MONEY!!

That may all be true southy ... but a car dealership doesn't provide the entertainment factor that a movie theatre does. Just because it is a business that makes money, doesn't mean that we can't show our enthusiasm for it being in Penticton. This community has waited 50 some years for a new theatre ... we are 'rightly' excited to check it out, and yes, even share our excitement. Encouraging others to support the facility is a positive thing. There are enough people on these threads that thrive on spewing the negative aspects of any and all new things in Penticton ... if some of us are excited to take in a movie at the new theatre ... I don't think we need you trying to put a downer on that. I hope they have huge success in this location ... and that it encourages other business ventures to give Penticton a try.

It's also nice to see the money stay in town (more or less). I know of lots of people who stated openly that they would rather drive to Westbank than patronize the PenMar. No need for that now. Sure, in the big picture a night at the movies is not as cheap as it used to be, but at least now for those who choose to do so it will be nice to have an up-to-date option available locally.

As Nebula just responded to you on another thread, you need to get a grip.

There are always two sides to every story. You should probably ask her (and her employers) that question. Anything you get from here would likely be speculation.
