Cinephilistine Theaters

There’s been just a super fun debate brewing over the last few days about what movie theaters of the future will have to do to accommodate discerning patrons who want an experience not focused on the movie. Unfortunately all the rational voices — mostly this courageous man —  have been shouted down by fascists who refuse to conform to a new generation’s groupthink. The funniest part is that all of these people claim to be open-minded, but as soon as you suggest an alternative mode of social interaction — especially one spurred on by second-screen culture and its freedoms — they pucker up tight and let fly with idiotic notions that are not only wrong-headed about how movies should correctly be enjoyed by everyone, but also about how the very world itself operates. For whatever reason, they don’t seem to grasp that cell phones, Twitter, Facebook, Readability, Blu-ray, Obama, Smart TVs, Foursquare, Honey Boo Boo, Pinterest, Regretsy, 2013,  Kim Kardashian, and Twitter again have changed the way we expect to be entertained by background noise. I think we all know and relate to what I’m talking about. I should be able to pee in my seat while watching a movie.
