#655 When you get to your seat just as the previews are starting

movie seatPlop down on those fat plushy seats, take a long drag of ice-cold cola, and let your eyes adjust to the big flickering screen. Slideshow guessing games and car commercials are long gone and now only the good stuff awaits. Time to get into it, get comfortable, and get your brain ready for a couple solid hours of

  1. I love this, as you don’t have to do the “pre-previews popcorn sipping.” You can start grabbing handfuls and dive right it while looking for upcoming movies, and occasionally sitting through the cheesy “Respect our theater” montage rendered in old 3D.


    1. I can relate to everything you just said! by the time the movie starts i’ve already eaten half my popcorn and we have this old slideshow in 3d like “take noisy children to the lobby” and “please do not put feet up on seats”

  2. Yes! Although in our theater it seems like it’s a thousand hours of commercials to every 5 seconds of preview. One trailer is the max at my local cinema. Total let down. I always feel gyped because I reserve popcorn for the light-dimming for only one trailer. NOT awesome.

  3. I agree provided you aren’t forced to take a seat in the front row where you’ll break your neck for the next 2 hours. Slipping in just prior to the movie usually results in all the good seats being taken.

  4. In college, we used to bring a flask of alcohol with us and add it to our giant cola. It makes any movie better.

    1. No way! Previews are key to the movie-going-experience!

      I hate it when I miss the previews… now, all the commercials that movie theaters are showing these days are another matter entirely.

  5. I beg your pardon…..having the seat envelope you just as the previews are over and the familiar “short” begins announcing the beginning of the feature film. Now, that’s awesome… not having to watch the insipid, loud previews.

  6. I actually enjoy getting there like 15 minutes before the previews start. Not only do you get the best seats, but you also have time for your excitement to simmer and build, particularly if it’s a movie you’re really excited about.

    1. I wish this had a “Like” button… I would so be liking your comment… then again, I guess I am :)

      Previews are Awesome in their own right … especially when it’s the ultra long trailer for the movie you are dying to see!!!!

  7. I’m not sure where you are getting your info, but good topic.
    I needs to spend some time learning more or understanding more.
    Thanks for fantastic information I was looking for
    this information for my mission.

  8. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be actually something which I believe I
    might never understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely extensive for me.
    I am looking forward to your next put up, I will attempt to get the cling of it!
