I got emailed yesterday by about a dozen concerned BREEDERS, all of whom were nice enough to pass along this juicy official statement (that appeared on PSP) from the managers of, what has quickly become, the worst movie theater in Brooklyn: The Pavilion.
This shit is actually kinda juicy: they talk bedbugs, they talk spooge covered purple seats, and they even allude to "proposed improvements." But yeah: in case you're wondering, they *do* seem to realize how hard the place sucks:
Dear Park Slope Parents,
Let us begin by sincerely apologizing for the current state of the Pavilion Theater—specifically for the broken seats and the heating problems. This theater holds a special place in our hearts and it pains us every day to see how much it has deteriorated. We, the other managers and the rest of the staff are not oblivious to the apparent problems; rather, we are bombarded by them every day. Unfortunately, until our parent company approves our budget proposals, we are entirely powerless to make lasting improvements. We know that the community wants this theater to be better than it is. We couldn’t agree more. We are both Park Slope residents and this is our neighborhood theater as well, but until our parent company takes action, we are simply confined to our own limitations. It is our job as managers to take responsibility for the physical state of the theater and the performances of our staff. While we maintain the day to day operations of this theater, we can only hope we are given the assistance to fix the bigger problems at hand. We still think this is a great place to see a movie in Brooklyn, but nothing would make us happier than to see this theater improve.
Regarding bed bug rumors—there is no evidence that we have bed bugs at the Pavilion. However, being a public place and being a movie theater in New York City in particular, there is always a risk of getting bed bugs. That is why we have routine checks and treatments as suggested by the extermination company. It is a major concern, and if bed bugs were ever to be discovered in the theater, we would not sit idly by. The theater would temporarily close while we rectify the situation.
We appreciate your loyalty as customers and understand your complaints. We are going to do better.
Jeezus, I almost feel bad for these dudes.
