    Default Bed bugs closing Restaurant Row 9 theaters?

    Recent street talk sez Restaurant Row's $1 theaters are so infested with bed bugs that the mgt. may simply decide to close rather than deal with alternatives. The problem is said to mostly be brought into the cheap movie house by the clients at the nearby State sponsored Next Step shelter for the homeless where bed bug infestation has been quietly pandemic for years.

    Perhaps rampant was the term. Definition 2b.

    Ever since I noticed the homeless/vagrant patrons, I've taken old towels and used them to cover my seat at RR9. It would be a shame if the theater had to close because of the bed bugs that are being brought in.

    Maybe it needs to become a $3 cinema. That would keep out more of the bed bug/lice-ridden bums while keeping it affordable for most people.

    Unfortunately, it just takes a few carriers to start the nasty ball a-rollin/keep the joint contaminated, and certainly more than a few of them can still afford the higher rate.
    The theater mgt. will just have to take strident measures to rid the place of the vermin if they want to stay in biz once the word get's out...

    I guess "have a good movie night, don't let the bedbugs bite" isn't a real good saying.

    methinks me smells alarmist predjudice against the horrid bane that is the homeless. next step is a great program geared toward helping homeless families. i'm disgusted at this, yet another, campaign to undermine it.

    take the time to look next step up before you join in on spreadong rumors to make its beneficiaries into scuzzy boogeymen.

    Default Wrong, but for another 10 cents you can try again!

    It was a group of homeless, some that are from Next Step, that was discussing it with me.

    Next time aim a little to the high right side.

    Unhappy Don't let the Bugbeds bite!

    My son who has been doing Camp Erdman every summer has decided to abstain this year because of the bedbug rumor circulating there.

    Indeed, every late summer (after camp) we would come down with a bedbug infestation (in his room), and need to take drastic action.

    They do die, fumigation works, but you have to get the hatching cycle right.

    Fumigate, wait for eggs to hatch, fumigate again before they breed and lay more eggs.

    Worked for us. BTW: They are NASTY buggahs!

    the sudden revelation that it was several next step folks WHO (not "that") told you this makes no diff. the post as you wrote it was clearly meant to incite an "ewwwww" reaction, with the next step folk being the cause of the ick factor. you're hardly in a position of high ground.

    Exactly!!! I had to Google them (the bugs), so I'd know what they looked like. Yikes! Now I can't stop itching! Too bad I'm not at home, and able to wash my hair. At least I have a home to go to. And a bathroom.

    With all else these folks have to deal with in their lives, being bitten while you are trying to get a few hours of sleep in safety is horrible thought. I am so lucky, and should think about that when I start complaining about my life.

    It sucks about your $1 theatres getting closed down, though. My neighborhood's $1 cinema was closed a few years ago, and nobody else wants to reopen. Tough times everywhere.

    ...still scratching....
