I was making the point that bringing up any topic about movie theaters to the Slashdot crowd is automatically going to elicit the same laundry list of old-people complaints (many of which I agree with) that misses the point; that is, no one cares about our complaints because we aren't numerous enough to matter, made obvious by the millions of teens and 20-somethings that continue to buy tickets. This topic's comments are predictable sound and fury, signifying nothing.
I didn't say the current experience is good. I myself only go to a theater on a weekday at 4:45pm, or close to it, to ensure there's as few people as possible in the theater with me. It usually works out pretty well.
