No happy ending for disabled person at movie theatre

The other night I went to the Cineplex movie theatre at Parkwood.

While I was standing in line to enter the show, a young lady who was assisting a young fellow in a wheelchair with a tracheotomy and breathing apparatus were about to go to the end of the line which was outside in the cold.

I said to the young lady, "no, come with me," and I took them to the front of the line and explained to the young lady taking the tickets that these two should be at the front of the line and not outside at the end of the line.

Nobody at the front complained and some in the line said "way to go."

A few minutes later, the young lady and fellow where heading back to the end of the line again. I asked her what happened and she said the Cineplex worker told her she couldn't be at the front, it was first come, first serve.

I spoke to the manager who said the same thing, then called the guest services and they didn't care, either.

Shame on you for treating them that way.
