|A pre screening view of one of the smaller Granville theaters. It's certainly not the Alamo ;-)|
|The aging but still exciting to see marquee at the Granville 7|

|The Granville theater - folks checking out the board of films playing soon|
In between screenings I took the opportunity to try Japadog's Japanese style hot dogs again. Liked the dog itself though I don't think the seaweed flavor is really right for me. Love the concept more than the execution perhaps. I enjoy the energy of their cart - but given a choice I'd stick with Seattle's Po Dog.

|The finished product. Delicious dog, bun, and mayo.|
For me the shredded nori was a bridge too far.
