Have You Ever Sneaked A Double Feature?


Let's say you've sat through something like, I don't know, Made of Honor. Tired and a little annoyed by the end, you feel like you didn't really get your money's worth and you wished you'd gone to see Iron Man which is, coincidentally, just starting in the theater next door. You see no security guards, just a straight shot to the doors to Iron Man goodness. Now for the big question: Dash inside, or refrain?

Have you ever done something like this?

I do it all the time. Sometimes we even plan in advance. I don't think it's 'stealing' AT ALL. The movie plays even if the theatre is empty!

My husband won't go to see a movie unless we make it a double feature. ::eyeroll:: It's one of his lesser qualities, IMO.

Um, this is what my husband and I do every weekend!

I've never done a double feature (being in a movie theater for 4 plus hours does not sound fun), but once I left a movie that sucked and went to see another one. And another time, my boyfriend & I went to see a different movie than his parents, so after we watched the Bourne Ultimatum, we went to their theater and watched the last 10 minutes of Harry Potter.

why you weren't seeing Iron Man in the first place, I don't know.

I was always a little goody two shoes so I would never do this. The only time I have done it is if I came with a big group, we went to different movies, and my movie got out early. Then I would go into their theater so I wouldn't be waiting around bored.

Yeah, Last Holiday, a couple of years ago. My friend worked at the theatre so it wasnt that hard.;) However, the more tech. advanced theatres that have cameras in the halls im afraid of because i dont want to be embarrassed by being looked for with a flashlight and being removed. Hell no!

Nope, never. Just can't do it - in my mind it's just wrong and dishonest.

fyi, the theater gets something like .75 cents a ticket. the rest goes to the studio. this is why 1) theaters don't care if you want your money back because you think the movie sucked. and 2) you can't bring food into the theater; that's where they make there money.

I've always wanted to but I don't have the guts to do it.

I did it once - I saw Tomb Raider(dumb), then The Fast & the Furious(also dumb), and then Evolution. I always want to do it again, but I feel bad...

Yes, I love to do that. It's dishonest, sure but the way they're price gouging at the theater now is absolutely absurd and I don't feel I get my money's worth when I watch one film. Trips to the movies can easily cost $40 now (unless you bring your own concessions but even then it's $20 for two people). It's not exactly hurting the theater's business or the employees' income either, I had a boyfriend who works in a theater and he says it really isn't a big deal, but that the employees' paychecks come from concessions, so it's nice if you pay the extra money for candy once in a while.

I've always just felt that its a little dishonest...

nope i can't say that i've ever done that - i don't think that it's something that i'd ever really considered. i don't know if sitting through 4hours + in a movie theater really entices me even if i did choose the wrong movie to see

I've never done it. I've often thought about it, but I don't think I ever would.

Never done it but I have thought of doing it MANY times... It just seems so easy! :)

I do it pretty often, but if that happens, I don't usually see more than one full movie - probably one and pieces of others than I feel like ducking into. Like, last month, me and my sister went into Doomsday first just to see the Hulk trailer with it. After it finished, we went and saw Horton Hears a Who. When that was over, we wanted to see the trailer again.. lol.. So my sister and I sat in Penelope for a while until Doomsday started again, and after that, we left. If there were enough movies I wanted to see, I think I could go in a chain. I'd probably want to try it sometime. :P

My friend and I meet up once a summer and have a "movie-hopping" day. Basically, we go to a huge multiplex at 1 pm and don't leave until about11. It kind of makes your brain feel like soup afterwards, but it's so much fun. (11 dollars is a lot to see one movie... but we're also just cheap and there's so many fun movies to see!)

tralalala you have a point, but you weaken your argument when you make a silly analogy. You can draw a parallel between killing an ant and killing a person but you don't because there is a huge difference between the two...

I have done it a few times in the past and probably would do it again. There, I said it..guess it's time to slap the cuffs on me.

absolutely not ever. There's a reason movie tickets are expensive, do you know how much it costs for a theater to get a 35 mm print? and then while some movies like Iron man do really well (and charge a lot for a print), they could still end up spending more than $50 000 on a movie that not one person will buy a ticket to. if you buy a car, and decide you don't like it, would you steal another car because of how expensive they are? no matter how you try to justify it, it's stealing.

i did just that on friday after work. went to 'Made of Honor' then saw 'Iron Man'. Felt a little morally bankrupt, but it was totally worth it!

the first time i did this, i was 8 years old and it was my birthday party! we watched both "she's out of control" (with tony danza) and "troop beverly hills" (with jenny lewis, shelley long and lots of other people in it)!! it was so much fun, and so memorable! we also snuck in candy and little debbie snacks. :)
