Re: AMC sobers up, apologizes for silly cinema texting plan
But then the cinemas would actually have to PAY someone to be in a screen to patrol them!
Until a year ago, hubby was a projectionist, and he was always saying that no-one would be in a screen during a show because they just did not have the staff available to do so on a permanent basis.
Other than the projectionists, most people multi-job during a shift - concessions, screens, usher, screen-cleaning...
Everything is pared to the bone - prices would probably go up again if they did patrol - they always do.
There were usually two people patrolling a screen when I was a kid:- but that was "So last Century!" :D
