Thoughts About Wollaston Theater Being Sold

31 Jan

Minus all the blatant racism/ignorance surrounding the Wollaston Theater being sold to an Asian man, the whole situation kind of reminds me of the “Hey Arnold!” episode when Grandma is pissed that Ernie is tearing down the Circle Theater. Before people go crazy with Facebook petitions, read Koch’s tweet stating that the guy who bought the theater is willing to listen to the community about what will become of the building. Ultimately, this guy will need some kind of community support when it comes down to the future of Wolly Theater. Or maybe that’s a bullshit lie, who knows? But regardless of what Wollaston Theater becomes, there is no need for all the racist comments, because racism is never a good look for anyone. I grew up in Quincy so I understand people are sad when they think about all the childhood memories that theater gave them. But is anyone REALLY surprised? The place shut down in 2003! It took almost a decade to sell! Just remember the good times. I will always remember going to buck night during the summer back in the 90’s to see movies such as The Lion King and Casper. Or the time my friend spilled her popcorn and the guy behind the counter bitched her 1st grade ass out and wouldn’t refill her bucket. But what I will remember most is that awkward feeling I felt while watching Titanic at Wollaston Theater, while sitting right next to my father. Eek.

Here’s a song compliments of Dino Spumoni to help you get over your pointless depression:

Get your shit together.
