From the email; Batman to play at the Palace

Yesterday on Dialog I had mentioned that I want to see the new Batman movie; The Dark Knight. A caller mentioned that the Palace Theatre here in Lockport plays movies, but I said they don't often have first run movies like The Dark Knight, prompting the following email from Ellen Schratz, executive director of the Palace.
Dear Scott,

I guess I didn't make my point as clearly as I meant to. I meant I wanted to see it IMMEDIATELY. However, my wife and I do often take the kids to movies at the Palace. The $5 price tag is nice ... and it's very roomy in there.

As an FYI, they'll also be playing the new Indiana Jones movie soon, Wall-E (I recommend it), Kung Fu Panda, Mama Mia, Space Chimps and Sex and the City.

The Palace is an asset to Lockport, but I'd still like a movie-plex with 8 movies playing simultaneously.
