Once upon a time, it was Majestic;
a kingdom from a golden age
where long ago would be staged
celluloid festivals for the eyes and ears.
Offering jeers and tears, cheers
and frightening fears of a beast
from an unknown dimension.
Did I mention matinees and serials
on Saturdays; memories of a bygone day?
Now state of the art, you start at the concessions
for bucket and barrel from sterile environs
massive media madhouse multiplex,
stadium seats that align in neat rows.
That’s how it goes. First run offerings
fit for a king. (As long as you
pick what the queen wants to view!)

Written for Khara House’s 30 x 30 Challenge – Day 4 – fit for a king
