I went to the Clairidge Theater with my cousin on Friday, November 11 to see The Skin I Live in - La piel que habito (ironically). On Saturday, I started developing what seemed to be bites along my right arm. On Sunday, when I talked with my cousin, it turned out that she too had bites. Then it hit me - when we were in the theater where the film was playing the seats on the left side of the aisle were cordoned off with yellow "caution" tape. Now, I realize that they must have treated the seats on the left. We sat on the right - but obviously, the bed bugs are still there.

By Sunday, my bites were unbelievably swollen, sore and painful! I finally went to the dermatologist today. It is totally irresponsible of this theater not to have alerted the public about the problem. If I had been informed, I would not have gone in there. If they were chemically treating the seats, that too should have been disclosed. What if I were a person who could have a reaction to chemicals? Beyond that, I for one do not want to bring any "hitchhikers" home with me. I really hope that I did not bring any bugs home. If I did - the money I spent at the Clairidge will balloon into a lot more! If that happens - it's the last the Clairidge will ever see of me. It's too bad because they are one of the few theaters that show foreign films - but it is not worth the risk.
