One time in like 5th grade I had this teacher and she gave us all bottles of shit like this and told us to squeeze it all out and of course we were like fuck yeah and did it and then she said, “Now, try and shove it all back in the container.” Of course we all tried, and then stared at her confused as shit. When we all obviously gave up, she said, “In the moment, you were so consumed with what you were doing that you didn’t realize the mess you were making. Then, after it was so quickly and easily poured out, you realize it is impossible to put it all back in. Remember this for the rest of your lives when it comes to the words that come out of your mouth” and we were like 10 so we were like yeah ok whatever lady, but somehow to this day I think of it constantly.

So, Trinidad and Tobago has finally transitioned from the era of the individual cinema showing two movies at once for less than $20 to the age of multiplexes showing one movie for anything upwards of $50.
Yesterday David Rudder posted some images of these old titans, who now serve as car parks, nightclubs, and churches, while a few are just barely hanging in there.
I know only one or two of them, but there are some that are new to me. So if there are any *ahem* mature Trinis around (or those well versed in our local history), can you name them?
Globe, Deluxe, Astor, Winsdor, Presidente, Strand. Last one is Globe too I think
