Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks

Three Exhausting Weeks
Day 1

Before HBO, Netflix, and the 107 other entertainment outlets bankrupted the Lux, I sat for many hours in that once-splendid cinema palace and watched movies. Now it’s stall after stall of what passes for antiques. Ann and I looked into every one of them.
