Sneaking in to movies...

    How horrible of a person would I be if, after I see Star Trek (sitting thru previews right now), I sneak into a showing of Wolverine across the hall in the cineplex? Stealing? Sure. Somehow, I don't seem to care. And, like, how would they catch you? It's not like they'll be able to watch all the folks milling about.

    So, am I an asshole, "thrifty" or a cheap mother-humper?

    The Throne of Judgment recuses itself because the leaked Wolverine movie was on its laptop a few weeks ago.

    Do it! And then on the way out, tell the people standing in line how the movie ends.

    Do this all the time. The huge theater in Times Square, we once saw 5 movies in a day. The key is you have to be willing to see a crappy one, because you might not have a choice if a worker is nearby, you just duck in to what's available (this is how I had the unfortunate pleasure to see Alex and Emma).

    The theater at 68th and broadway is great for this as well. I never did this the first 26 years of my life. Then my wife introduced me to it. I was panicking the first time, but she was cool and calm and she has the ultimate excuse. If she gets caught, which she has as a single gal, she says she's a foreigner - which she is - and acts completely confused.

    She used to go so far as change outfits in the restroom before re-emerging, but that's when the theaters had more workers.

    How would you like it if someone read your stories without... -- nevermind.

    Having worked at a movie theater, it's pretty easy to pull this off.

    But personally, I couldn't sit in a theater all day and watch a string of consecutive movies. I'd rather d/l them, pick and choose when to watch them.

    Well, ultimately my questionable morals gave way to my leaden (and elephantine) ass -- after 2-plus hours of Trek I couldn't possibly do another 2 hours for Wolverine. AMC wins this round. I guess I'll catch Wolverine in a matinée sometime.

    MARCY: Okay, well, like I said I was on 3rd Avenue, and I stopped by a large department store.

    GEORGE: Which one?

    MARCY: Bloomingdale's.

    GEORGE: Very good. Go on.

    MARCY: Oh, and I stole a Piaget watch.

    GEORGE: What's that?

    MARCY: And then, I was on such a... high, that I went upstairs to the salon on the fifth floor, and got a massage and facial, and skipped out on the bill.

    GEORGE: Shoplifting.

    MARCY: Well, what about you? You told me that you were engaged. What was the rest of that? (Pause)
