    two questions

    Hi teacher:

    Could you please tell me the meanings of the bracketed parts?

    1. Although the distance between them was something less than two
    hundred miles, [the train meandered to points far out of the way.]

    2. His sister won fifty dollars [at a movie bank night].

    Thanks a lot.

    1. The distance between them was about 200 miles (as the crow flies).
    The course the train took was not a straightforward line, the train sort of zig zagged, moved back and forth through different stops, went in all different directions.
    2. I am not sure what that means... a bank was sponsoring a movie?
