As Petula Clark almost sang about the cinema

By | January 11, 2008 5:37 am PST

An article about an Irish man falling asleep during a screening at Arklow’s Gaiety Cinema Group Multiplex only to wake up to find himself locked in, during the Christmas holiday season no less, leaves out the most important detail. Which film was playing that proved a snooze fest for at least this one patron? No idea, but thankfully there is no talk of a film adaptation staring Macaulay Culkin. The last sentence of the article also shows why Ireland has had so many winners of the Nobel Prize in Litterature. “A spoksperson for the GCG Multiplex said that as with any business, there would not be 24 hour security on the cinema’ and that he had no comment to make on the matter.”
