seen in theaters

anonymous asked:

What's the worst behaviour you've ever seen from a movie-watcher at the cinema while the movie was playing?

I’m trying to think…the worst behavior I personally have seen at a movie theater…nothing is standing out in my memory. Probably just someone talking during the movie, or someone bringing their kids to a not-family-friendly movie and then letting their kids run around and make noise. And I can’t even remember any specific instances of either of those things, I just am sure they’ve happened in theaters where I’ve been watching a movie. I guess I’ve been pretty fortunate in my movie-going experience. (Also, I tend to go to a lot of matinees.)

Oh, wait, I just remembered a specific instance of someone talking a lot during a movie, but it wasn’t bad behavior, necessarily. I remember going to see  Bridget Jones’s Diary at the theater, and there was a woman sitting a couple seats away from me who was REALLY into the movie. She was clearly a fan of the novel, and she laughed loudly and talked back to the characters (“Oh girl, don’t do it! Don’t listen to him, nooooo!”) and generally was just enjoying the heck outta herself. I found it pretty entertaining, though, and it didn’t bother me. It enhanced my experience. :)

Thanks for the random ask, anonymous friend!

“Six Flags Power Plant: Realized Attractions” Claudio Mazzoli , Eddie Martinez & Herb Ryman, 1980s

Yesterday we took a look at what didn’t make it into the Power Plant, but today, we look at what did.

Each of the stories was connected to the fictional character of Professor Phineas Flagg, a combo of Verne, Wells and Barnum created by Goddard & Co. Seen here in a color study by Herb Roman, all of Flagg’s discoveries and wonders from his travels could found and viewed at the Power Plant.

First place guests could view his collection was in The Laboratory of Wonders. This walkthrough took guests through Flagg’s laboratory, and featured live demonstrations, special effects, animatronics, diorama displays and a “Wizard of Oz technology chamber” as seen here in art by Claudio Mazzoli.

Another attraction was The Magic Lantern Theater, seen here in art by Eddie Martinez. This musical adventure, which featured 80 animatronics designed by master Marc Davis, was set as a gigantic robot theater that displayed the latest in technological findings.

In the Plant’s basement, guests could find The Circus of the Mysterious, which was basically a plussed mysterious fun house.

The final attraction was The Sensorium, which made history as the world’s first 3D/4D theater. It was created by Flagg to allow people to experience all of his wonders in every sense of the word.

Many thanks to Theme Park University & Gary Goddard for the info and images!

“It’s Ford’s first meal at the Haus, so everyone be on your best behaviors, alright?” Bitty bustled around the kitchen, a bowl of biscuit dough tucked under one arm as he gave the gravy on the stove a stir. Though it wasn’t an official Team Brunch, Bitty was pulling out all the stops for Ford: biscuits and gravy, fruit salad, hash browns, Canadian and normal bacon, as much coffee as could be brewed at one time… 

“We’re always on our best behavior,” Holster said with a yawn. He and Ransom were slumped together at the counter, lethargically slicing fruit at Bitty’s command. 

“Yeah, Bits, we’re upstanding gentlemen,” Ransom said, grabbing Holster’s hand before he sliced his own finger. Holster gave him a sheepish grin and reluctantly put his glasses on.

'Out in Japan' Raises LGBT Awareness With 10,000 Photos
Over the course of five years, a diverse group of photographers have sought to capture the true face of Japan's LGBT community by photographing 10,000 people. They have just released their second volume, Out in Japan #002.

“Photos from the collection can be seen at Tokyo’s Hibiya Theater Creation through Oct. 9. At the exhibit’s opening last month, Leslie Kee, who directed the photography project, said that “everyone who participated in Out in Japan has their own story to tell.”

Out in Japan is an attempt to highlight the presence of LGBT people in daily life – a community that is not especially high-profile in Japan. Some Out in Japan #002 participants offered suggestions about how to make the fairly invisible LGBT community more visible, while others spoke about the obstacles to doing so.”

“We spent three minutes photographing some people, and 10 minutes photographing others,” Kee said. “This project aims to make the audience recognize, with both their eyes and their hearts, the subjects’ various identities.”

What a great project! #RepresentationIsImportant

anonymous asked:

He wanted to kiss him.

Hi, i hope this is okay! Sorry for any mistakes.



During summer Sunday afternoons, the Derry theater was the place to be. For most days, all the losers would come running into the dark building to escape the outside heat, and find their seats where they’d take up half the row and kick their feet up.

The Derry Theater always had a summer deal, or ‘steal’ as Richie liked to call it. They’d play classic hits for 3.00 per ticket, and snacks would be down a dollar.

“We should see E.T.,” Mike suggests.

Richie argued back, “No way! Gremlins is the way to go.”

“We saw that two weeks ago, Richie.”

It would usually take about 15 minutes before everyone either gave up or finally all decided on one film they could agree on.

But today was a rainy, dark Sunday.

What Is The Shape Of Your Monster? – Get Out and Thought-out Horror

Get out.

No, I’m dead serious. If you haven’t already seen Jordan Peele’s Get Out yet, I need you to do me a massive favor. I need you to bookmark this page, close this page, and absolutely do not read this page— or any other essay or article on Get Out— until you’ve finished watching it.

I’m not just saying this because this essay will contain major spoilers for a movie that is best enjoyed going in knowing as little as possible— I mean, yes, it will— but most of all I just want as many people to see this movie as possible. It is by far the most socially relevant American movie to come out this year, at time of writing, if not one of the most socially relevant pieces of American art of the past decade.

It’s also just a very good movie.

  • what she says: i'm fine.
  • what she means: Newsies is the most amazing show. It started out at Papermill without any thoughts of going to Broadway but it was so well accepted at Papermill they took it to Broadway for a short run of 105 shows. But after all was said and done they closed having done 1,005 shows. The tour of Newsies was only supposed to play in 25 cities over the 43 weeks, but instead it played in 65 cities in 104 weeks, with over 700 performances. When they filmed the show it was originally going to be seen only three times in theaters across the US. Because this shows fan base is so dedicated, it broke records and they added a fourth showing. Newsies is the best thing to be a part of.
1D as people I’ve sold tickets to at my movie theater job

Harry Styles: good looking guy who comes up with his equally good looking girlfriend. stares up at the movie times and cant decide what they want. without taking his eyes off the board, he grabs his girlfriend’s hand and makes her start rubbing his belly. his girlfriend also just continues to stare up at the board, unfazed, as if it’s totally normal in their relationship to rub his belly. they buy tickets to a rom com.

Liam Payne: tries to make me, the cashier, laugh at his bad jokes. comes up with his wife. you can tell they have kids, but they must be with grandma and grandpa that night— theyre having a date night. so pure. when he asks for two tickets he says “one adult, one child..” and winks and nudges his wife who also laughs. when he looks at me, I give him a pity laugh (after already having heard that joke 3 times that night, alone) when I tell him how much it is, he grabs his chest and says “HOOO you are an expensive date!” and giggles with his wife, walking into the latest superhero movie.

Louis Tomlinson: the 13 year old who goes to the movie theater on Friday night with the other middle schoolers, stands outside and shares a single drink between three guys and one girl. comes up to my window and looks at my name tag and calls me, a 24 year old stranger, by my first name. turns around to giggle with his little friends at the joke. buys a ticket to Florence Foster Jenkins, but goes into Sausage Party. gets kicked out.

Niall Horan: teenager who cockily tries to climb over the ropes in the queuing area. his foot catches and he falls, landing hard on his shoulder and right side of his face, and to add insult to injury, his pants even slide down. he lays on the ground for a bit…just….letting it happen because it might as well. his friends laugh at him. he stands and pulls up his pants looking around to see everyone else staring too. he laughs the loudest walking up to the window in order to drown out the screaming i can see in his eyes.
