Thanks a lot for Jack Mathews' little valentine to the Cineplex Odeon corporation and its restoration of the Fairfax Cinemas (Film Clips, July 9).
I live in one of the neighborhoods that has been graced with a brand-new Cineplex Odeon theater, and my fondest wish is to blow it off the face of the Earth.
Parking, Mr. Mathews. Parking. Our dear Canadian entrepreneurial brothers have provided none. Zilch. Zero. Zip. At two-hour intervals, a fleet of upscale autos descends on this once-quiet residential neighborhood.
Yuppies desperate for entertainment park in red zones, on corners, in front of fire hydrants and in the driveways of homes and apartment houses. There is nowhere to park for people coming into the neighborhood or, more important, for people who pay high rents to live in it.
