Heritage Park provides fantastic fun for film fans

CHICKASHA — I love movies. I can't stress that strongly enough.

As a child I used to look forward to every Friday when my dad would pick me up from school and we would head to a local theater to check out a flick.

I loved that time with my father and it probably has a lot to do with why I'm such a movie buff today.

After 10 months of living in Chickasha, I finally made it to the local theatre, Heritage Park.

I passed it a few times in my travels and never thought much about it. I always wanted to take-in a film there, but somehow perpetually  ended up at the Warren, or an assortment of other larger theaters.

Well not this week.

On Sunday I went to Heritage Park to see the new Star Trek film, and wow was I impressed.

The inside of the theatre is kept very clean, the sound system was flawless and the picture was crisp. The movie wasn't half bad either.

Granted, the screen wasn't a stunning 20 feet tall or 60 feet long, but it still was substantially larger than any I've seen in a living room.

Plus the prices were amazing. Only $6 for ticket, what a deal. Less than $10 for a large popcorn and large coke. The place is perfect for a date.

The only thing that I was a little disappointed in was the complete lack of patrons. At 2 p.m. on a Sunday, there were only six other people sitting in the theater with me, and it was the film's opening weekend. Now, this may have had something to do with my movie choice, as Star Trek didn't do too well across the nation; but still, only six people.   

When I left, it looked like it was getting a little busier but certainly not busy enough for sustainability.

This place is a gem, and without the proper polishing provided by consumers I'm afraid it may fall into disarray and eventual destruction.

It's a local business offering a service that contradicts one of the most ridiculous statements I commonly hear: there is nothing to do in Chickasha.

Well, as it turns out, there is, and I intend to do my best to supply Heritage Park with money. I can only hope others will, too.
