Some time ago at the Varsity Theatre, an off-screen drama preceded the featured film. Having dropped off a couple of friends while I parked, I returned to find one of them had lost her footing and fallen, resulting in a deep gash in her leg. In no time, several moviegoers were administering first aid by applying compresses of paper towels.
I hurried back down the long hallway to the lobby, where I asked the staff for their first-aid kit, but it it was nowhere to be found. One of the helpers, the only one whose name I got — Jorge Loyola — left the theater and returned with some new tube socks to replace the sodden paper towels for the drive to the emergency room.
My sincere thanks to the resourceful Mr. Loyola and to all the others who stepped up. Your help was very much appreciated.
