Re: “The end of The Oxford

An excellent piece by Ms. Thorne. I will long remember the "pre-show" of an eager group of seniors (including some in motorized scooters) as they made their way into the Oxford at the screening of MAUDIE that I attended. And then there was the elderly woman who ascended to the near empty balcony (because we always arrived early). She took one look at my partner (again visualize the empty balcony), semi-glowered and announced: "YOU'RE IN MY SEAT."

But she soon chilled and sat in the seat next to my partner. Worried that her husband had not yet arrived (stuck in the logjam in the lobby), the woman started to fret that he'd been in an accident or had somehow otherwise been harmed. My partner reassured her that he was probably ok and by the time he arrived, the woman and my partner had become "fast friends."

And then there was the younger woman near us in the balcony who kept getting up (with the flashlight activated on her cellphone) to help many seniors find a seat in the by then darkened theatre. For sure one of the best movie-going experiences I've ever had. The atmosphere was festive and caring. A true community gathering.

A shame that the Oxford is closing. And too bad that TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD is not among the classics that will screen as the curtain comes down. It's a superb film with a timeless message about truth, honour, courage and dignity.
