  1. Kill It With Fire: Chinese Movie Theaters Are Putting Audience-Goers’ Texts On Screen

    UNACCEPTABLLLEEEEE

    I like to think I'm pretty forward-thinking about tech. I'm not one of those pretentious assholes who makes holier-than-thou comments about how people need to unplug from their screens and connect with the natural world, brahhhhhh. I hate the "Must humans play God?!" sci-fi trope. But so help me God, if this becomes a thing I will lose my shit, potential hypocrisy be damned.

    Still unnerved by the idea of people wearing Google Glass everywhere? If you live in Texas, Colorado, Michigan, Missouri, Virginia, or in New York City, there's now a place you can go to get away from all that wearable tech: the Alamo Drafthouse.

  3. Screening of Noah Cancelled After Theater Floods

    I cannot think of A Passion of the Christ equivalent for this, and that's probably a good thing.

    Patrons of the Vue Cinema in Exeter, England were unfortunately unable to catch the first screening of Noah last Friday. But divine intervention (or a broken ice machine) still gave them plenty to talk about.

  4. There’s Scientific Proof That You Should Eat Popcorn at the Movies

    Yes. Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes. Yes.

    A study by researchers at the Cologne Institute has determined that eating popcorn makes moviegoers at least somewhat immune to advertisements—for example, those godawful commercials that you're forced to sit through before the movie starts. "Thank you for watching Regal FirstLook" my tuchus. Not like I have a choice, Regal.

  6. Japan Is Getting Iron Man 3 In Smell-O-Vision

    Japan :D

    OK, technically it's called 4DX, not Smell-O-Vision, and "odor effects" is only one part of it. But "4DX" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

  7. Reward For Not Texting In A Theater? There’s An App For That.

    Almost Totally Excellent

    At a recent trip to the theater I was greeted with two things; one was a message from the chain asking us not to use our cellphones during the show, another was a paid advertisement that talked about texting during a movie as if it were ok. Needless to say, while I assume most people are against cell phone usage of any kind during a film, there are those out there who think it's ok. But a new app aims to reward customers for good behavior. Will it work?

  8. Will You Have To Pay 3D Prices (Or More) At The Theater For The 48 FPS Hobbit Showings?

    Not all that glitters is gold

    I'm gonna go ahead and guess most of us would pay anything to see Peter Jackson's Hobbit films but when it comes to theater trips these days, not all of us have Smaug's gold collection.
