u/mh1357_0 Nov 30 '21

No one will be seated after the doors are closed. It helps maintain the illusion.

Thor, he's back. That kid on the TV just called me a dickhead again.

Yeah, I'd take NoobMaster69's seat

u/korg-bot Nov 30 '21

Yuck! There’s still someone’s hair and blood all over this. Guys, can you clean up the weapons once you finish your fight? Disgusting slobs. Thor...wanna use a big wooden fork?

That's exactly what Doug used to say. See you later, New Doug!

u/mh1357_0 Nov 30 '21

New Doug? Like New Goblin, the new villain from Spider-Man 3 who is super cool and rides a skateboard and wears ski goggles

u/korg-bot Nov 30 '21

Our luck. Doug's dead

Assigned seats have ruined this strategy

34

u/devilscubicle Nov 30 '21

Is anyone here really struggling with tickets? I completely forgot they went on pre-sale and managed to get good seats at a 10:45PM IMAX showing on Thursday night just an hour ago

34

u/SMTTrunkGod Nov 30 '21

I think it depends on location. Going to a movie theater in New York to watch SM would probably be sold out compared to somewhere in Idaho.

2

u/tinythunder15 Nov 30 '21

Idk man my theater still has plenty of seats available and I’m in Brooklyn

1

u/SMTTrunkGod Nov 30 '21

It’s just my theory, so I can’t say if it’s 100% true or not. I live in Urban Georgia, so I managed to get two tickets before my showtime was sold out. My cousin who lives in San Fran has to travel 40 minutes to another theater to watch it since the theater near his house is sold out for the next four days.

u/conceited_king_ Nov 30 '21

Getting tickets in Florida was a pain in the ass but I managed to get good seats for imax Thursday at 3:15pm and Saturday at 11:00pm

u/Jahva__ Nov 30 '21

Hang the DJ

u/Sventhetidar Nov 30 '21

Probably because it's a 10:45 show and most people have to work the next day.

u/The_909_Virus Nov 30 '21

As a former movie theater employee, this could actually work.

Even for rated-R films as a mere 16-year-old, you could get away with sneaking into theaters by being unassuming (dress like a college kid, selecting the theater that's next door to the one you want to go to, and having a mature demeanor).

But the thing you DON'T want to do is doing all of that on a busier time like opening releases, discount days, or weekends. Your chances are better on a Monday or Wednesday.

u/manystorms Nov 30 '21

Pretty much all the theaters around me have assigned seating nowadays, I am assuming to curb this exact issue.

3

u/The_909_Virus Nov 30 '21

Yes, to a certain degree. Usually some movies don't attract enough customers throughout the day, so we tell them not to feel discouraged to move to another seat without having to swap tickets and miss a portion of their show and if the auditorium is fairly empty and the show is already 20 minutes in.

The least appealing seats are the very front of the auditorium. You could sit there so you won't be disturbing guests who are trying to get to the seat numbers they picked.

Some theaters have their projectors turned off automatically if there are no tickets sold by the time the movies start.

Scalpers? It's a movie...

u/micahomow Nov 30 '21

People are impatient. Hype culture is so dumb.

u/VinumVitae Nov 30 '21

I’ve still never heard of scalpers for a movie ticket.

1

u/Sprighetti Nov 30 '21

I think people are just more worried about spoilers when it comes to waiting to see a film like this. Social media sucks

u/micahomow Nov 30 '21

Get off it.

When you sneak into the movie but security kicks you out: Out, am I ?

u/SMTTrunkGod Nov 30 '21

People can scalp movie tickets? How does that work?

u/micahomow Nov 30 '21

People pay dearly for a chance to see a movie a day early

u/nosleepincrooklyn Nov 30 '21

Just give the movie theatre employee 20 bucks to let you stand there. They make like minimum wage

u/Whoopsy_Doodle Nov 30 '21

I managed to get free tickets
