The best part is how terrified the adults were, judging by these quotes. More
Don’t 3-D and IMAX make movies intense enough? Not for South Korea, who’s trying to bring a 4-D movie theater to Hollywood. But how long can you put up with moving seats and “back ticklers” and scents pumped at you before you feel like you’re on a theme park ride? More
Movie theaters and studios are seriously considering easing up on audiences texting in movie theaters because of the young generation and their need to be constantly accessible. Do you think that’s a good idea? More
Why is it that the official videos that Paramount released of fan reactions to Paranormal Activity 3 are only so-so, while ScreenRant has an excellent clip from inside the theater? More
Detroit’s Main Art Theatre was apparently so squicked out by the first official poster for The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) that they posted this happier, more soothing version in their lobby. We’re not quite sure what the cupcakes and unicorns have to do with fusing people together for your own sexual desires, but OK? It’s sort of a cross between The Neverending Story and The Last Unicorn…
Not to worry, you’ll get to see the real one after the jump, too. More
Today, Gentle Readers, I’m going to introduce you to a wonderful invention. I’m not sure if this wonderful invention has a name, but I usually call it Dinner-in-a-Movie. Admittedly, this is a rather clunky moniker, but I like it, and here’s why: Why would you do dinner-and-a-movie when you can do dinner IN a movie? Because that’s exactly what this wonderful invention is: A hybrid creature that is simultaneously cinema and restaurant. And there need to be way, WAY more of these in the world, because they’re AWESOME. More
Now we get why Alamo Drafthouse is consistently voted the beast theater in the country. They’re the ones behind the viral video of an angry customer’s bleep-filled voicemail, which they used in their famous “Don’t Talk” campaign of PSAs that run before new movies. Today we stumbled upon their official YouTube channel, which collects all of their “Don’t Talk” PSAs — including the hilarious ones with celebrities like Jason Momoa and Dave Franco. Not all of them succeed — therein lies the fun — but you have to hand it to the theater and the stars for turning out such wacky videos. More

While writing up the Avengers teaser leak earlier today, I came across a great comment on YouTube complaining about audiences who go apeshit during a movie. The commenter asked, Why the hell do people in other countries cheer and clap during films? Yeah this was cool but how about trying to watch it? Is it an American thing? Having never seen a movie in a foreign country, I can’t answer the nationality part, but I can respond to the first part: Because it’s so much fun to share in the experience with everyone else. That said, not every movie warrants us to play Mystery Science Theater and talk back to the screen. Here’s a guide for when to cheer and when to shut yer trap. More
Who said movie theaters don’t have a great sense of humor? Austin’s Alamo Drafthouse theater has had a strict no-talking-during-the-movie policy that stretches back to 1997; with the advent of cell phones, they updated it to include no texting. One young woman kept texting even after she got two warnings, so she was booted out of the theater. She left the Drafthouse this expletive-filled voicemail claiming she had only been trying to find her seat and defending her American right to text in a movie theater — not that she was, but if she wanted to. They turned it into a PSA that they now run before every R-rated movie. (Warning: Language.) More
