There Goes The Neighborhood!

I typically see a movie in the theater every weekend of the year. Normally I go to the small cineplex that's just a couple of blocks from my house, as it's less crowded and there aren't quite as many seat-kicking adults, texting teens or shrieking babies there.

This past weekend however, I'd already seen everything at the local theater, so I went to the BIG cineplex way over on the other side of town.

Something I've noticed at that place— the quality of a particular movie is inversely proportional to its distance from the front entrance.

For example: Big budget summer blockbuster films will ALWAYS play on one of the screens ten feet from the lobby, next to the concession stand. Always, without fail. 


But if there's a watered down PG-13 "horror" film, a fart comedy or a slow moving Oscar-bait drama playing, then it'll be on Screen 16, which is LITERALLY as far back into the building as you can possibly walk. When I realize it's taking me two minutes to walk to a particular theater inside the cineplex, I know I probably should have picked a different film to see. 

It's almost like there's a "bad neighborhood" inside the cineplex, where they dump all the terrible or unpopular films!
