GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – Lots of people nationwide grabbed a soda and popcorn to watch Sunday night’s presidential debate on the big screen.
Regal Cinemas showed the debate live at 206 of their locations around the United States. There were several held in South Carolina, including one at the Hollywood 20 on Woodruff Road in Greenville.
The debate kicked off at 9 p.m. Sunday night. We talked to voters who showed up to watch. They told us they believed the debate was important to see, but that it wouldn’t change their vote come November.
“I think it is a lot different and potentially more important and more revealing of how people handle the issues instead of the stupid things they say,” said Roger Labas. “Everyone says stupid things and it is really actions that are more important.”
“I thin there’s a lot of people who have decided not to vote and this could sway them to get out and vote,” Martha Goodlett added.
“I think the closer we get to the election the more important it is because I think there is a number of undecided people out there,” Steve Root explained.
