another reason i never go
One big I reason I don't go to the movie theaters much any more is because of my daughters...after our first was born, we had precious little time. Another reason, frankly, is because most of the offerings just aren't that interesting any more. And then there's this: theater chains are increasing the amount of "pre-show" ads and program shorts to 20 minutes' worth.
This summer, I only saw a couple of films in the theater, and was generally annoyed at the endless previews of endlessly uninteresting movies. But it's really infuriating to have to sit through commericials before the flick--and pay for the privilege, yet. if I wanted commercials with my films, I'd stay home and watch American Movie Classics.
Update: IssuesGuy has, um, issues with pre-movies commercials--and lousy popcorn--too.
