30 Day Movie Challenge Day 23- Worst Movie Going Experience
This isn't representative of one instance, but an amalgam of the many times I go out to the movie theaters in LA. For a city that is the most closely associated with Hollywood and film, theater goers here are very often incredibly disrespectful and can't seem to watch a movie without texting, chatting, or any number of annoying activities. As a film buff, it's incredibly sad to see the theater is no longer the sacred ground it used to be. Now it just seems people can barely tear themselves away from their phones for two hours. In addition to the ever-escalating prices, I fear the magic of going to the movies has been lost for many people. I hope we can find our way back before it's gone for good.
