Clearing House


My boss and I were talking about how he watched Star Wars in theaters when he was six years old. Lucky bastard. He talked about how great the scroll was, the music, and the giant spaceships. But the most interesting part of his story was when said that after the movie ended, his dad asked him, "Want to see it again?" and they did. No, they didn't buy another ticket, they just stayed in their seats and watched the movie again.

Movie theaters used to not clear the auditoriums between screenings. A 10AM ticket could buy you a day's worth of movies. Granted, it's the same movie over and over again but regardless, the opportunity was there if you wanted.

My question for you is: 
WHAT MOVIE(S) WOULD YOU HAVE WATCHED AGAIN 
IF THEATERS DIDN'T CLEAR OUT BETWEEN SCREENINGS?

Fight Club for sure but I think I could've sat and watched Shaun of the Dead until the theater closed. Anything Simon Pegg
