It's been a long time since this place was used for it's true purpose. Though today at least there are people in there. As Virgil finds himself entering, to get away from the storm. Virgil being soaked from running in here. Glancing around before heading straight for the counter. Trying to find useful things. Grabbing a giant bucket to fill stuff into it. Finding some snacks of different kinds.

Besides the high school auditorium/theatre, the movie theatre is one of Piper's favorite places in town, for a multitude of reasons. Having got caught in the storm as well she has retreated to the shelter of the dark theater and is sitting on the counter, snacking on a bag of chips, her barefeet swinging a few feet from the floor. "Hey." she greets as Virgil dashes is and immediatly starts digging around.

Amy has her coat, which helps, but when it's really raining she uses her tarp that she came with, too. Becuase why not. Coming in here, she looks around. SEeing Piper and Virgil she waves to each, then looking at the theater, she hums. "I wonder if this place could be used for anything."

Virgil blinks as he hear Piper. "Oh, hey. Sorry. Figured I'd need to find things." Showing flashlights among other things. "And something to eat." Grinning as he shows the bag of chips and cheez-its. Glancing over as the sound of another entering catches his attention. "I am sure that it could. It's large enough." Glancing between them both.

Piper shrugs at the apology, as far as she is concerned he didn't do anything wrong. The snack foods have her giving him a thumbs up at his finds. "Nice." her eyes move to Amy as the girl comes in the question making her hmmm thoughtfully as she looks around "Too…" too what?

Amy decides to dig around a bit herself, and chuckles. "Salt. And stale skittles. There was time I'd throw away both these things." She sets aside the tape and poster to pick up before she leaves, puts the salt in her purse, then leans on the counter herself, near Piper, to open up the skittles. "Probably going to have to like suck on them first before they'll be properly chewy." Piper's comment gets a head tilt. "Too? I just came in because it started raining, you know?"

Virgil grins and nods to Piper. Raising a brow as he looks between the girls. Turning his attention back to try to find things of use. A soft chuckle at Amy's words. "Yeah. Though now we'd do anything to keep those." He suggests and grins. Studying them both curiously. "I suppose we all needed some shelter?" About coming in here.

And eyebrow arches at Amy comment "Stale?" she head cants. Do skittles get stale? She doesn't know, but guesses Amy will find out. "Maybe." she gnashes her teeth a bit before shaking her head "No, no," then gestures around "to…" she holds her arms out forming a circle with them. She is saying this place is to big, at least for thier small group. She tabs her nose at Virgil.

Amy takes one out, and carefully brings it into her mouth and tries to bite on it. She winces. "It's still chewable, but yeah, stale. Much harder than fresh ones." she giggles. The girl then starts to suck on a bit. "Oh this is too much? Should we go somewhere else maybe? Hide under my tarp and run somewhere else?"

Virgil chuckles and nods as he watches Piper. "It is at least a good shelter." He offers, seeing her tap her nose. A grin thrown towards Amy as well. "Careful. Wouldn't want you to hurt your teeth." As for too much he shrugs, "We could retreat into one of the theaters themselves?"

Another shake of her head and then she waves it off "Ne'ermind." Piper comments as she watches Amy try to nom on a Skittle. She eats a few more chips and looks at Virgil at his suggestion, then covers her eyes with a hand "To dark." well for them it would be.

Amy holds out the bag of skittles for the others to take some from. "Yeah I was careful. Breaking a tooth now would totally suck. They're not THAT bad. Just not fresh, at all." She grabs another and sucks on it. "I agree though, going that far in without like, a lantern would be very dark and kind of creepy."

"True. But perhaps one of the flashlights has working batteries." He suggests with a shrug, while continuing his search. "Hope the weather passes." A small grin before taking a skittle, sucking on it while searching. Another small nod at Amy's last words.

Looking at the bag of skittles being offered Piper waves them off as she slips off the counter to go poke around the concession stand "Maybe." she doubts it but stranger things have happened. "Creepy?" she huhs, she glances down the wide hallway that leads to the individual theatres. She has never thought of them as creepy, but she has a very narrow view of the concept. A grin comes to her face at the chips oh and M&Ms, enough for her flock to get a small handful even.

Amy giggles. "God there's a lot of snacks here." She decides to start poking around herself some more to see what she can find. "Good stuff. But yeah, dark deserted places strike me as creepy."

"Theatre." Piper says to Amy as she pulls a box out from under the counter and plops it on top. The tone the uses suggests that is pretty much the answer as to why it is snack heaven in here. With a curious look she opens the box and pulls out neatly folded shirt, which she shakes out "Need shirt?" she asks Amy, holding it up.

Amy giggles, and reaches out to take one. "Sure, thanks. Could use like, a shirt when I work on candles, or soap, or whatever," she nods. "Just something extra." Stretching a little she puts that with the other things she'll be taking back after the rain's gone. "It's too bad like all the theaters are digital now. If they weren't we could probably actually use the old film kind and watch the movies."

Virgil humms and comes out from behind the counter. "Damn. Nothing of use here." Failing with finding anything. Looking between them both. "Maybe someone knows something about all of this?" He suggests and shrugs. As for shirts, he grins. "If you have one in my size I'd be happy to take one.

A shirt is offered to Amy, one of the smaller ones in the box "Did." she tells the girl, but doesn't specify beyond that. At the request from Virgil she eyes him a moment and then digs through the box to pull out another shirt to hand over "Large?" she isn't sure, but it looks like it might fit him.

Virgil offers a nod to the shirt and Piper's words. "That should work. Thanks." Moving to take the offered shirt. "What now?"

Amy takes the shirt and holds it up in front of herself, then against herself. "Nice thanks." she laughs.

Looking between the pair of them she shrugs as the other three shirts are removed and tucked into her bag. Piper knows what she would do if she were stuck someplace in stormy weather by herself…find a place to curl up and take a nap. She isn't going to suggest that to them though, cause weird. "run for it?"

Virgil shrugs, "That or find some booze and play a drinking game." He offers with a bit of a chuckle. Putting away the t-shirt he got.

Amy smiles. "I'm fine with running for it. Getting drunk at a party is one thing, getting drunk in a quiet theater seems… different. I've got the tarp."

Piper arches a brow at Virgil and shakes her head. She's with Amy on this one. And where would they find booze in the theater? She's pretty sure she and/or Quinton found it all when they scavenged here a few weeks ago, but who knows. A glance is given outside, and while the thunder seems to have ceased the rain is still falling.

Virgil nods again, "All right, let's run for it." He agrees. He'd probably wouldn't be able to find booze anyhow. Getting what he had found and trying to get ready to head off. "Run all the way back?" He asks as he stretches some.

Piper looks up from more searching and nods in agreement as she shoves the rest of her findings in her backpack and shoulders it. She doesn't bother with stretching or none of that she just makes her way to the exit ready to take of when they are.

Amy gathers up her things, bundling them as well as she can to carry. She then gets her jacket back on, and grabs her tarp. Holding it over her head, she gestures for the others to take it as well.

Virgil does move to join Piper. "Okay, shall we?" He asks. Helping to hold up his part of the tarp as well, grinning at Amy, "Sounds like a plan then." Not seeming to mind them all just moving under the tarp. Probably wouldn't mind just running either though.

Piper shakes her head about the tarp thing. She maybe be somewhat verbal, but getting that close, especially while running, that isn't happening. No touchies an all still. "You two…" she gestures for them to go and she will just run. She's been wet before, she can deal with it.

Amy laughs and shrugs. "Alright, Piper, if you want to be soaked like, I'm not gonna stop you. But there's totally plenty of room."
