Video Script

Hi, I’m Randall, and I’m here in American Fork, Utah, along this busy street to introduce to you Towne Cinema. And my family and I come here for several reasons.

Number one, it’s not very busy, not hard to get a ticket.

Number two, the tickets are very inexpensive. It only costs a dollar fifty ($1.50) for a ticket.

And the third reason is the concessions are great. And you can get a drink, and some popcorn, and a snack for well under ten dollars ($10).
