The most recent shelter, an old escalator shaft that went deep into the ground, was causing more interest anyhow than an old essay. As they walked down the eroding tunnel, they established that this was also a remnant of that dead society. When they reached a door and opened it, however, they discovered something that only the old-timers knew about, a movie theater. This, they said, was the dominant escapism at the fall of society, essential for those people who only valued entertainment while their world collapsed.As one of the older men turned on the projector, the rest of the group sat down and stared in amazement as images flashed on the screen. A child dropped the essay to the floor, never to be looked at again.
