Kids at a showing of Saw? Toss me into E-hell for this thought: Those parents should be made to act out this film on a future reality show.
There were several at the latest possible showing of Saw 2 when fiance and I went (I think it had to be 10 at the earliest and 10:45 at the latest)
My movie theatre is usually diligent about this, but the parents could have bought the tickets online in advance.
Actually, kind of related, we went to go see 300 in Imax. I wanted to buy the tickets online to ensure we got them, but we figured since we'd get there earlier enough that it wouldn't matter. Well, the theaters around here have started the new policy that if you're buying more than one ticket for an R rated movie they have to see all the people who are receiving the tickets to make sure they're either family or over 18. (In other words, you couldn't even walk in and buy one for yourself and your husband. I can see this making some sort of sense, but that doesn't mean I have to be happy about it.)
Anyway, since fiance wasn't with us yet, we basically had to give up on seeing it this weekend since there were only 82 tickets left and the 7:30 showing had been sold out since the previous night. The woman behind the counter sympathised with us and told us the biggest problem they have is the people who buy them online, then have to be turned away at the door because of age reasons. So then they end up having seats left. The evil part of me wanted to stand right there until time for the show and find out how many people ended up getting turned away then buying their seats real quick.
Ok. My pointless deviation from the main topic is over now.
