Loews theatres is abandoning its deceptive practice of advertising movie start-times that were 10-20 minutes earlier than the actual show time, and then forcing the customers they suckered into turning up early to watch commercials, a captive audience.
People are treating the movies that are playing these ads like its a violation against their 'rights'. Sure I don't like them, and unless it's a movie preview I talk at normal level, often just making fun of the ad. But really if you already know that there will be previews, don't show up so early (or on time...or whatever). Is it really that hard?
If this is a problem, let’s get on TV channels for not starting their programming exactly on the hour.
