Mimi and I were riding in the car today, and out of nowhere she asked
Do you think Gone With The Wind ever played in movie theaters?
I smiled and said Yes.
Then she asked
What about Fiddler on the Roof?
Yes, that one too.
At which point I explained that most movies made anytime before she was born, were pretty much made for the theaters. None of this straight-to-video thing that they sometimes do now. And when I was growing up, there were no VCRs, DVDs, or DVRs.
So basically, anytime you wanted to see a movie, you had to go to a theater?
(Pause for me to nod.)
I haven't told her yet about growing up without a remote control, nor about having only 5 channels to choose from - I'm waiting for a time when I can really milk it.
