How does Holden pass the time while waiting to meet his friend?

After Holden leaves the skating rink he goes to a drugstore because he’s hungry. He again contemplates calling Jane and reminisces about how jealous he was of another boy dancing with her at a Fourth of July dance. He calls Jane, but she doesn’t answer. So, Holden calls an old friend Carl Luce, an older kid that he used to know at Whooton School and sets up to meet him later for drinks. To kill time, Holden reluctantly goes to see a movie at Radio City. While watching the Rockettes Christmas show, Holden notices the guy in the orchestra who plays the kettle drums. Holden remembers how he and Allie used to love watching the kettle drum player in the orchestra pit during the shows. After the Christmas show ends the movie starts and Holden finds this boring and “putrid”.
