A Theatrical Delivery

The Puzzler


RAY:  Here's the answer. Now if you've ever been in a tunnel or a cave, what’s the first thing you notice?
 
TOM: It’s dark.
 
RAY: There you go. They were selling darkness to movie theaters. No. They weren’t selling darkness. What they were selling was cool air. This was before air conditioning. But these guys figured out, we can pump cool air into the movie theaters and refrigerate these people. And the customers were frozen right in their seats. Anyway, do we have a winner?
 
TOM: Yes we do! The winner is Steve Weiss from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Congratulations, Steve!
