Should you be embarrassed, oh Coast Reader, for choosing the monolithic BLIP multiplex as your place to escape the rain that comes so frequently in this seaside town? Nah. With 17 screens, you’ll probably find something to see that’s worthwhile, and with so many quality films never showing downtown, heading to Bayers Lake is your only chance to catch them. You may have to re-mortgage the house to get a bag of popcorn, a bucket of pop and a giant pretzel, but hey, that’s the way it goes. At least you’re dry and the stadium seating sure is comfortable.
