    OK. Has everyone gotten over yesterday’s comment war?

    So there’s a fair amount of privacy in the balcony. That’s convenient. I sense they won’t actually be watching the films. They have important matters to discuss.

    What’s a “listening devise?”

    As a former theater manager, I can tell you that the balcony would only be opened, prior to showtime, if the theater was expecting a big turnout for a blockbuster film or at showtimes if the auditorium became filled.

    Continued: It was impractical to open for a few people to dirty it and waste manpower cleaning it!

    Oh oh, Annie’s belt changed colors …
    Personally, I think that outfit looks better with a white belt, but of course, the colours of such things are of no significance whatever.

    As for the broach (brooch), it’s just a piece of jewellery and doesn’t have magical powers like the decoder pins have. At least I hope it doesn’t, because that would just complicate matters unnecessarily.

    That’s why it’s the perfect private spot for Tracy and Annie. Ostensibly, they are only allowed up there because Tracy is a bit of a local VIP and as the upholder of law and order, he can be expected to not make a mess. I expect that only he and Annie got that special permission and no-one else would seek to go there for this show. I notice that Tracy knows the usher by name without having to be told.

    Not much happening today because this is setting the stage for the Sunday strip. I get a feeling a lot of details are soon to be revealed.

    Mike Curtis is also a former theater manager, as you’d know from the comics he wrote before he started writing for Dick Tracy.

    Then again, I don’t think “Shanda the Panda” had as many readers as Dick Tracy does now.

    Annie, I think many of us are tired of this pretend mush!

    So, young Annie has been pretending “mush” while in public with Officer Tracy? And of course Lonnie the usher (remember those, oldtimers?) is perfectly happy to be complicit and allow them sole use of the balcony….
    Well, they had better come up with some good ideas towards their escape, because those movies sound pretty boring….
