John Flanagan: Good points were made here. First, one is exposed to all kinds of germs in a movie theatre, given the close proximity. You are right. Movies can be bad for your health. Secondly, being asked to move a couple seats over is absolutely not an option, and you have a right to decline. The reason is that most of us who arrive earlier have a strategic interest in getting a seat which is center perfect, and not too close to the screen, and not too far back. These seats must not be surrendered, not ever..... However, movies are fewer and far between for my wife and I, even with the senior discount, big drinks, and huge amounts of buttered popcorn. The commercials are annoying, the previews are continuous, very loud, and follow the following criteria: Explosions, car chases, gunfire, cursing, and each scene must come at you with split second timing. Also, I have found most movies as disappointing as TV, with stupid dialogue, bad language, references to flatulence and other things, and a waste of time. But the movie industry doesn't care what I think, and they are laughing all the way to the bank.
