"Just look at all the commercials we now pay to watch at the movie theater."
These sound horrible, until you realise WHY all those ads are running.
Of the $15 you paid for your seat at the latest blockbuster screening, around $14 went to the movie distributor. The theater operator has to pay for everything else with $1/seat
It might sound harsh, but if you really want to support your local movie house DON'T go see the blockbusters when they're released, see the second run and less popular stuff - and buy the fucking overpriced popcorn.
Just don't put up with shitty sound where some twat has fucked the equalisation up by pushing all the knobs to 11 (theater managers are notorious for this) or sound levels to 130dB or where an ass is on his phone loudly the entire movie.
