Che, we have a funky little movie theater right here in Marathon. It takes us longer to get the new releases, but I am glad to have one on the island. It costs 6 dollars to get in and around 7 for a coke and popcorn. They also serve beer and wine, but no fancy chairs.Gigi,
How far do you have to drive to go see a movie?
We have a couple of window air conditioners and they don't really do it. We used to have big trees around our house that helped and now they are gone because of one thing or another and now we bake. We have a pool though. Because we live in a dry climate, in the summer it cools off pretty good at night and we turn the whole-house fan on after dark and that cools things off pretty good. Our house is 100 years old with no insulation in the walls so I think it would cost a fortune to put a regular air conditioner in and run it. So I cool off in the pool, the only problem with that is if it is over 100 for a week or so the pool gets too warm.
You don't have air conditioning in your home?
most homes here dont have AC. heaters yes, coolers, not so much. Its only a few days or weeks a year that it is warm enough to justify the few grand it costs to get an inline system, or the thousand or so for a portable or window mount unit.Wow, I can't imagine living w/o climate control.
