At ShowEast in Orlando Jack Valenti stated that in the last four weeks after the events of Sept. 11th, every one of those weekends registered an increase in box office takes over the year before. That means to me that people were seeking their escape from reality by going to the movies. So no matter what some people may want to believe, Hollywood is providing a service to a public that is looking for a way to but the tragedy of the Sept. 11th behind them for a time. Cheers!

I agree. Seeing a good movie in a theatre that "does film right" is an enjoyable respite from the television and other sources of "doom and gloom" news. Pictures like "Monsters Inc." and "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" bring families together to briefly forget their everyday troubles and have a good time.

Many years ago I remember reading somewhere that when times are at their worst the three business that do the best biz are: bars; bowling allys; movie theaters. Anyone out there remeber this or are all the drugs I used to do just flashing back?
