Do commercials at movie theaters before the movies bother you?

Yes. It’s akin to the beginning of commercials on cable in the 80s. Cable was supposed to be commercial free! 🤬

Movie preview trailers no.

Blatant TV commercials yes.

I haven’t been to a movie since The Passion of the Christ. But I have no problems with trailers, as I get an idea of other movies I might like to see.

Trailers are ok. It is ads for products and services before the trailers that royally annoy me.

Is it completely Biblical, Fitz? The ONLY “biblical” movie that we’ve ever seen that was anywhere near close to what the Bible says was The Passion of the Christ. It’s impossible to watch a biblical movie with a person that has two degrees in the Bible, when the movie is NOT Biblical! 😂🤣😂

I hear, “Nope, that’s NOT what he said!” “Nope, that’s NOT what happened!” “Why can’t they just write it the way the Bible says it!???”

If it is truly Biblical, we might stream it one day, but we just don’t see the sense in spending that much money for a theater when you can watch it in the comfort of your own home, pause it when you need to go to the bathroom or get a snack, and watch it at your own leisure for a FRACTION of the cost.

Eh, I got used to them, but honestly I don’t think it’s right when you buy. Ticket to see a movie.

Just took the family to see Frozen 2, and spent $100 on tickets and snacks. How dare you advertise to me, theater!!

Because the theater makes almost its entire income from snacks, and because $100 is no big deal to me, I buy direct. It has the added side effect of providing a good example for the kids. When money was tighter years ago, I definitely followed the “sneak stuff in” strategy.
