Monday nilisema wacha niende hapo garden city kuona movie, for the uninitiated, on Mondays it is when they charge the lowest (400) popcorn inclusive. the first sign that things are bad there was only one counter open, usually they are like 5/6 counters za kubuy tickets & snacks. My showing was at 4:45 and I arrived a bit early. so was chilling for the movies that started at 2pm to end I guess it was Croods for the dolby atmos theatre and wonder Woman for the IMAX one sasa nimechill hapo waiting area expecting a crowd of people to come out lakini wapi ! Only like 8 people came out most of them Chinese / Asian origin.
sasa nimeingia kwa cinema kucheki "the Marksman’ and hakuna mtu I’m all alone and the place is dark and silent as a library saa hizo simu ilizima, with nothing to do, I counted the speakers in the Dolby atmos theatre, they total 50, 24 Overhead, 36 surrounds (left, right, rear) anyway 5 mins before the movie starts and the projector comes on, some few aga khan ads and few trailers later, only 4 other people have joined. In short Movie tuliona watu watano and its fucking 5PM! supposed to be prime time
and to add salt to injury HBO cut a deal with Warner Bros whereby Movies premier sameday both on streaming & Cinema and some other studios are doing it too kama Disney and how they released Soul
This I Guess is a small sample size to draw a conclusion but 5 people is alarming ?
People are apparently scared of covid they think movie theatres are crowded but just across the road wamejazana kwa club kama mchwa… once this selective phobia of covid imeisha they will back to normal… same thing is happening in churches.
I cant state the the last time i went to church around 2015. Hizi saga za mapastor zisitaki. I do pray lakini na hii corona church si ni kama club? Nikitoka waks ni hustle ama kufika home. I have survived like that for an year now maybe thats why i find myself in boredom.
Those fuckers told me I couldn’t use their facility since they are past membership capacity and have to wait for 3 months (this was in late January 2020)
Tried reasoning with the arrogant prick, explaining to her that am willing to train mchana when there’s virtually no people since most guys come either morning or evening…
The rest as they say…
