Canadian Movie Chain Looking To Start Charging Extra For Middle Seats
Unless you go to a cinema that has assigned seating, there's a pretty good chance that you follow common movie theater etiquette, which is basically its own special twist on "first come, first served." If a person goes to a movie theater extra early, they've earned the right to sit wherever they like - presumably right square in the middle. If a person is late to a screening, it's nobody's fault but their own that they have to sit in the front row and crane their neck.

Key Movie Theater Executive Admits He Preferred To Watch 12 Years A Slave On DVD
This explanation was couched in an approval of the intensity and performance of modern theaters, the state-of-the-art technology creating a you-are-there feeling that the home market cannot beat. And in this case, it’s perfect for taking you to Asgard in Thor: The Dark World. But the slave-era South? No, the theater cannot contain that. Keep it fantastical guys. The theater just can’t pull that off.

Movie Theaters To Test A Discount Plan For Cheaper Tickets One Day A Week
Would you go to the movies more if it were cheaper? I would. I've been and continue to be a movie fan, but in this day of digital downloads, Redbox and Netflix, I can get a pretty steady fix of great films (not to mention great television) for substantially cheaper than what it costs to go to the theater.

If you see something, say something. That’s what the federal government wants you to do when it comes to possible terrorist activities, and that’s what the studios want theater owners to do when it comes to possible piracy activities. In theory, such proactive behavior can stop illegal behavior in progress.

Why A Trip To The Theater Isn't Like It Used To Be
The grandeur seems to have left the building, so to speak. Theaters used to be built to impress anyone who walked through the doors. Since the buildings were tall anyway, it was a great spot for lavish decoration. Draped pillars, wide carpeted staircases, marble floors. Going to see a movie about a faraway land? Might as well walk through some expensive-looking shit first.

Ninjas Force London's Rude Moviegoers To Shut Up
If you're like me, you're hoping there is a special circle of hell for people that talk, play with their phone, or seem otherwise deadest on being a distraction at the movie theater.

Man Sues AMC Movie Theater Over High Cost Of Snacks
I can’t imagine there are many movie-goers out there who think the price of snacks at the concession stand are remotely reasonable. Sure, we’re all probably used to shelling out what could amount to more than the cost of a movie ticket for popcorn and a soda, but “reasonable” doesn’t seem like an adjective fitting to the cost. While skipping the concession stand is the obvious way to avoid being ripped off, a man in Michigan is taking the issue to court.

Red Band Rant: Why Movie Popcorn Is The Worst
We now live in a world where music exists in a cloud and shampoo can be purchased at the same store as a Blu-Ray. That smells like success to me. Unfortunately, despite all these technological wonders, every time I go to the movies it still reeks like Orville Redenbacher firehosed cheap butter and salt in all directions
