The other night, we went out to see the movie, “Hitchcock.” We got to the theater late and so we thought we would see the rest when it restarted. After the movie, as usual,a cleaning crew came in to pickup the trash. I wondered how long we would have to sit until the next showing started. So I asked a member of the cleaning crew named Savannah, what time the next showing was. Appearantly she was the manager of the cleaning crew and she told us that even though we had not seen the entire picture, we couldn’t stay to see the beginning because she believed it was like seeing 2 movies, even though it was the same film. She kicked us out and laughed at us with her coworkers as we left in disgust. I felt outraged and I am now writing to the Reading Cinema website about this. Hitchcock was a pretty good movie for film history fans, but what do you think about what Savannah did?
