If there is one thing that I really enjoy, it is going to the Cinema theater and watching Hollywood Blockbuster Feature
films. I have become, a lonely person somewhat of a recluse & do not have many friends. I rarely socialize, except while
at work and as a result, life is very frustrating without any excitement. This boredom can be quite painful at times.
When I am at the Cinema theater watching movies, I tend to get relaxed momentarily. It is a nice way to kill (spend) time
and let your imaginations wander around. In Miami, my favourite Cinema theater that I frequent most is, AMC Kendall Town
& Country. I like the Shopping Center lit up at nights, all year around as if it was the Christmas season. The shopping
center at night reminds me of The Sikh Golden Temple, at Amritsar, India.
The 2nd Cinema theater that I go seldomly, is AMC Sunset Place 24. This movie theater is the largest and most modern in
Architectural design, that I have seen in the U.S. It has 23 movie auditoriums inside. It is very compact, yet large and
relatively new (1999). It also has a unique, modern designed, shopping-plaza in front with 8 levels of parking space. It
is spectacular in view. ( Main website: AMC Sunset Place 24; South Miami )
