overheard at the castro theater...

Perhaps you've heard, the Castro Theater is currently on Day Three of Cary Grant Week. Last night, I went to see "Arsenic and Old Lace" with Lisa and her mom. Sitting directly in front of Lisa's mom were two men in their 80s. They were old. Really old. There was lots of dramatics with them trying to sit down and get situated. And I thought, "Oh, isn't that sweet. Old people seeing old movies in an old theater."
At one point in the movie, Cary Grant does this big pratfall and kind of hangs over a toppled armchair. To which one of the old men in front of Lisa's mom announces in regular, non-whisper speaking voice, "He's got a great ass."
