It's amazing how no one watches movies at the theater anymore. I went to see a movie last night and the theater was empty.

I grew tired of movie theaters some years back, after seeing one-too-many films that were projected badly in a crappy theater. After that, I'd only go to really well run/maintained theaters (ArcLight, Dolby Cinema), and then only rarely (usually for big-screen blockbusters). There aren't any good theaters nearby, and they charge more, so it just became too much of a hassle even before the pandemic.
(pre covid) The night before the last Avengers movie, I had bought the only seat so far for the showing, right in the middle. Paired recliner seats, which clearly show as pairs on the website.
I get to my seat and there is an entire family of 5 in the row, with someone in my seat. I get there, show my ticket, and the mom makes her kid move out of my seat, and I would have sat next to her in the paired seat. I think I said out loud "Are you fucking kidding me?" Moved down one row where nobody was. What the hell is wrong with people?
