Edwards theaters, AMC, UA Theaters Complaint - Commercials at the movies
CONNECTICUT -- It is bad enough for the consumer that it now costs up to $10.00 dollars to go see a movie. At least it did not have commercials. I don't consider coming attractions commercials. Once inside the theater they have a "captive" audience. There is no getting up to go to the fridge or snack bar since you don't want to miss anything. I went to see Windtalkers the other day and was forced to sit through 2 car commercials (they were so effective that I don't even remember the maker), 1 long one for Cocacola and a couple of special service announcements. That really made me angry. One of the nice things about going to a movie is the LACK OF commercials. I think it is deceitful and a lack of good service to the public. If I want to waste my time watching stupid commercials I will stay home and watch television. If I am going to be subjected to this each time I go, I will simply wait for the movie to come out in DVD/Video and watch it at home without the commercials.
