Hi John,

Early in the article you stated it's "no skin off your nose" if you are subjected to 15 min of commercials before the movie starts. But then you take a different tack, and complain about the 15 min. Is your main gripe that these 15 min cause the movie to start later than it says?  Personally, I am disgusted by theaters showing ANY commercials to me after I paid $11 to watch a MOVIE.  Paying money should actually EXEMPT us from watching commercials, but the corporations are so slimy they find a way to subject a "captive audience" to a vulgar parade of advertising.  Even cable "on-demand" selections include commercials; it's unbelievable how powerful these advertisers are, that they can even convince TiVo to make it harder for their customers to simply "skip" the commercials, forcing them to fast-forward through them, even though the technology exists to skip them.

 @ed7020 show up 20 min later? You mean when it's completely dark and all the seats are taken?
