Ways cinemas are like churches

August 22, 2013

  • Sitting in auditoriums that used to be full with hardly any people in them. 
  • Branding and public presence that suited a bygone era. 
  • Feel tired and sad. 
  • Too many long and irrelevant ads/announcements. 
  • Poor welcoming experience. 
  • Poor food experience. 
  • Sometimes look to faddish things (3D), to bring revival. 
  • Charge us too much for things as lousy ways of getting income (paying for sermons? paying for popcorn?) 
  • Make you feel they’re just after your money. 
  • Put little thought into how to enhance the experience of being a member of their community/loyalty club. 
  • The ones who are doing it well are adjusting how they use their space in more cultural appropriate ways. 
  • Many have foyers/social spaces tailored to daggy 90’s youth culture. 
  • Seem to have pointless rules. 
  • Don’t have a lot of love put into their venues. 
  • Are best when you go out for food with friends before or after. 
  • Are best when you talk thoughtfully about afterwards. 
  • Could provide more avenues for social interaction and engagement, rather than passive reception.
