I am deeply dismayed that the architect and planners of the new theater in Barkley Village did not try to make the new theater "fit in" with the established village look. I believe it stands out like a sore thumb and is not a very pleasing addition to the area.
I have noticed that the building is always "lit up" and I am wondering how that fits with the saving energy options that the public is encouraged to consider in appliances, home lighting and other energy zappers. I find that the building is in direct controversy to the way that we are encouraged to save energy.
I am wondering if the increased power costs will be reflected in ticket prices, which are already high. A family of three or four can expect to pay more than $30 to go to a movie, with a minimum of expensive popcorn.
I think that the planners of that area should reconsider just how they choose to use their energy consumption to be in concert with the rest of the general population. Perhaps, then the building might not be viewed as a misfit in the area.
