Movies Scheduled for the Week of 6/3- 6/9

Act 1, Scene 1
The moderator enters stage left. Goes to podium. Adjusts the microphone. Scans the darkened theater house and clears throat.

Moderator: It has come to our attention that there seems to be a reoccurring situation in regards to reserve seating at our screenings. Y'all know that those seats that are marked off are for press or guests of the studio. We are allowed by the studios to fill the remaining seats when these screenings are held. If we want to continue with this privilege then we must abide by the studio representatives rules. Do NOT sit in reserve seats. It's very simple. If you want a good seat, then arrive early. Do NOT rip off the reserve sign and pretend you don't speak English and ignore the rep. That kind of behavior will get you kicked out of the screening. Also, calling the rep a b*tch will not win you any points. And if someone's belongings are on a seat, do not move their stuff to the aisle and sit in that seat. Really, that's spelling major tool on your forehead. So unless you want to see these screenings severely controlled, limited, and harder to attend, stop acting like it's all about you.

Some audience members snicker in agreement, some are on their banned cell phones, other's are getting up for the 5th time to go wander around.

Act 1, Scene 2
Moderator: You come to the theater and stand in line early. It looks innocently like there's just a couple families ahead of you. Total count 10. By the time the rest of their party arrives there are 30 people in front of you. Lets have to common sense and courtesy. Everyone saves spaces in line for their friends and relatives. But can we self impose some rules like going to the back of the line when you have a multiple guests. One or two people cutting in we can all probably live with, but several families, their kids, grandparents and school mates? Really? Come on people!

The Moderator steps away from podium giving one last look at the crowd, who by now have completely gone on to doing whatever. The message is completely lost to them because frankly they don't care. It's free movies, we got in, so what, give me swag.
