Last night I covered the Twin City tea party meeting in Leominster (more on that later tonight) when Dinesh D’Souza movie 2016 came up. I was told it was playing in Fitchburg and a group of tea party members were planning to see it tomorrow night when then have the Tuesday matinees.
I was going to be busy Tuesday so on my way home I swung by the theater to see what time the movie was playing. To my surprise there was a 9:15 show so I figured I’d see it at once and pay the extra $2.
As you might guess on a Monday night the movie only had a few people. There were under 20 cars in the lot for the 9 movies that had post 9 p.m. I was one of 4 patrons, one I had previously met at a tea party meeting and a pair of ladies one who had brought her friend.
None of the patrons would agree to an on camera interview either before or after the film but I did talk one gentleman into interviewing ME. So I handed him my camera told him he could ask we what he wanted and voilà:
I’m told attendance was good enough this weekend to possibility justify carrying it over another week or at least the weekend, I’ll check back on Friday and find out.
