Just heard that somebody’s suing movie theatres for running ads before showing the flick.
Personally, I just sit in my seat & boo them. Decorum (and Chandra telling me to shush) keeps me from doing it too loudly, but it makes me feel a little better. Plus, I have to admit that knowing those ads are there plays a factor in deciding whether or not we’ll go to a movie or just wait to see it on video. Is that petty? Maybe, but then so is taking $20+ from us (tickets + requisite snackage) and then trying to squeeze out just a little more by forcing us to sit watch ads for cars, Coke, & the army. Thank you, but I’ll rent it for $3 and watch it at home with no ads, a glass of ice water & air-popped popcorn.
