The movie theater experience seems to be in flux. While there is an appeal to visiting the theater with the more recent Savannah weather patterns — smoldering heat one day and rains leading to flooding downtown the next — one would assume there is still an audience to head out to the megaplex to catch the latest blockbuster offering.
