I was talking to a friend who’s worked on board cruise ships for a number of years. I was asking a bunch of questions about life aboard a cruise ship (staff get their laundry done for free, but it helps to leave a tip in your laundry bag). As you may know, many cruise ships feature small cinemas that show current films (they rotate every month, apparently). However, the newest ships no longer have these movie theatres. Guests prefer to rent DVDs from the ship and watch them in their cabins.
Speaking of the Stanley Theatre, I’ve written a lot on this site about the long, slow demise of cinemas. This seemed like a sign of things to come.
