Conversation

DOROTHY: Paul, we haven’t gone out for over a month. Let’s go somewhere this evening. PAUL: Fine. Where would you like to go? Look in the newspaper to get information about the movies or the theater. DOROTHY: I see that a new play opened this week. PAUL: It got very bad reviews. The newspaper story said it was the worst play of the year. You don’t want to go there. What else can we do? DOROTHY: I’d enjoy a good concert, but, according to the paper, there aren’t any tonight. PAUL: Aren’t there any good movies in town? DOROTHY: How about “Dancing in the Dark”? That should be entertaining. PAUL: We’ve already seen it. It’s an old picture. Don’t you remember? DOROTHY: Well, there’s a good love story at the Center Theater. PAUL: You know I don’t like love stories. What’s at the neighborhood movie theater? DOROTHY: “Amusing Adventure”, with Robert Roberts. It’s a comedy. PAUL: Good. Let’s go there. What time does the main feature start? DOROTHY: It started fifteen minutes ago. We just missed it. PAUL: Well, I guess all we can do is stay home and watch television.
