I appreciate the previews ... when I’m running late.

Times have really changed in the movie theater business. In my high school and college years, I earned a little money as a projectionist. The projectors were Simplex, all mechanical, and the film was illuminated by arclights and reflectors. Primitive stuff, to be sure, but I never ran more than five minutes of trailers. Occasionally, a Woody Woodpecker cartoon might be tossed into the pre-feature mix, but moviegoers in those days didn’t have to sit through the crap modern theaters dish out in such abundance before showtime. I ran my last movie in 1974. These days, I would rather watch Netflix in the comfort of my own home on more or less my terms.

Marcus Theatre near me does assigned seating in nice recliners. Worth the extra couple bucks a ticket to be able to show up right at show time.

I thought Incredibles 2 was awesome. The short did suck.

Haven't been to the theater since 2006. Don't miss it.
