    We're not sure. Either they had just gotten robbed so had decided to close up for the night. Or, the person standing there with his back to us was the one doing the robbing.

    I'm really tempted to go back and ask the manager if that was what was happening when he told us the theater was closed, and then thank him for sending us away!


    This same theater got robbed a few years ago , but that time it was by the employees. And they got busted because they had taken the entire safe full of money, put it in a grocery cart and were wheeling it to their cars, only it was making so much noise that several people who lived nearby called and reported it to the police!!! LOL

    Yikes what timing. My only bad luck at a theater was when I was working and a fire started, luckily it was all okay but it's a pain to clear out a whole theater on a busy night.

    On a truly positive note, look at this way.

    You know what the odds of that happening again to you or anyone near you are like? Nil, frankly. So you now know you'll never be robbed at gunpoint from here on out.

    However, plane crashes and earthquakes are still open.

    Anne, I'm glad that you're okay! That's a little scary.

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    Oh goodness!! How scary, smart thinking manager for not putting any more innocent people at risk.

    When you think about it, how much money could anyone possibly rob from a theater??

    Can you say Peanuts!

    Wow, Just think Santa Cruz used to be a peaceful sort of town. Maybe I'm glad I moved down here now.

    Seems like luck was on your side. When Tower Records was around my brother and I left just in time to miss the store being robbed. The minute we stepped out of the store cop cars were all over the place! I looked behind me and through the glass doors I could see a guy waving his gun around.

    And the lesson: If you guys had a real attitude and would have tried to have an argument with him, you could have been shot. A manager at Home Depot was shot for much less than that not too far from where I live.

    Glad you guys are safe, and I hope they nail the crook who stole the cash.

My co-worker was hyperventilating and the customer started to freak out. Someone had to stay calm.

    Glad you are okay too!
