I wonder if anyone else has read the book by Kevin Murphy "A Year at the Movies: One Man's Filmgoing Odessy" (Publisher: HarperEntertainment. ISBN# 0060937866). Kevin Murphy was one of the writers on the old cable show "Mystery Science Theatre 3000". He also played the role of Tom Servo the robot. Anyways the book is based on his attempt to watch one movie a day for a year in a theatre. There is one essay per week detailing all his snarky and sometimes insightful comments about theatres, movies, theatre staff, and audiences. Some interesting thoughts and escapades (such as trying to live off concession stand food for a week!) Pick up a copy and read it between reel changes.
