We, the captive audience, have had enough. TV commercials belong on television, not before movies that we PAY for.
As previously stated, movies have traditionally served as an escape from the “real” world. The movie theater was a portal into different perspectives on the world around us, and sometimes into worlds completely different than our own, be they past, present or future. The movie theater no longer serves to promote the business of escapism, but now is seen as the last resort for advertisers to truly force feed the public video games, soda and SUVs.
How about you give us, the movie goers, a choice:
1. We pay your outrageous $10.50 and we have NO COMMERCIALS.
2. We pay $0.00 and give us all the commercials you feel we can stomach.
