Let’s Go to the Movies!

By Victoria Strassler, Age 15, Canada


We arrive at the cinema an hour early,
Just so we guarantee we’ll be satisfied with the film we are about to see.

We go purchase our tickets for the show,
So that we aren’t battling it out with a stranger for the last ones – foe VS foe.

Next it’s time to go to the concession stand,
We buy everything that’ll satisfy our taste buds: popcorn, soda, French fries, candy; it’s a wonderful and tasty food land!

Now we’ve got our tickets and treats, and we make sure we have everything we’ll need.
It’s time to go into the theatre, I’ll take the lead!

We walk in to see there’s loads of sits to fill,
We always arrive early so we can pick any seat to watch the movie, it’s a skill!

We choose our seats, and we wait for the film to start.
I’m very excited to finally see this motion picture event; you can feel it in my heart!

The theatre begins to fill with people who want to see the same film as me,
The lights begin to go dark; I can hardly even see!

All the commercials have been shown, down to the last preview for an upcoming flick,
It’s now time for the film to begin; time has gone by so quick!

After two hours of fine cinema, the film is done.
I can’t wait to go to the movies again, it was so much fun!
