    :thats: This is making a tempest out of a teapot. Some folks are grateful for the extra few minutes in obtaining snacks, and sometimes the trailers are more entertaining than the film themselves.

    And, how do you prove that you purchased the ticket? Mine is usually discarded after the end of the showing of the film.

    Yeah, I like the idea of padding the beginning as it gives the drones behind the popcorn time the chance to get through their 10 minute per customer "service".

    Besides, we just HAVE to get our $10 worth of popcorn and soda (worth 50 cents wholesale) and the extra time is appreciated.

    The...
    "This is making a tempest out of a teapot.

    It's "...a tempest in a teapot"

    Please, if you are going to employ similes, sayings or quotes, at least get them right. And for goodness sake, please don't turn a maxim into an oxymoron.

    :rolleyes:
