1001 Black Men–#138

Went to the movies tonight, at the Century 16 Bayfair in San Leandro. The last film I saw at that theater was a matinee, and there was barely anyone in the theater. Imagine my surprise, then, when I arrived just before 9pm on  Saturday night to see big crowds of people outside at the ticket counter, milling around in the lobby, and lining up for popcorn and refreshments. I was waiting in a line for popcorn which was several people deep, and other moviegoers keep shouldering their way past us get to the soft drinks and candy. The man in this drawing was standing just past the register. He was waiting for his wife and kids who were in line behind me. He had an exasperated look on his face, and I remember that his hands were posed in a position that made him look like he was playing an invisible violin.
