Bert and I went to see the third Hobbit movie yesterday. I had half expected some half baked movie that went on FOREVER, like the third Lord of the Rings movie. So I went in with absolutely no expectations and basically just went because Bert really wanted to see it. But lo and behold, I really enjoyed it! So I'm really glad I went to see it.
What I wasn't glad about, however, was the fact that Utopolis chose to show about 15 minutes of commercials and just _one_ trailer (for Seventh Son, I suppose I should be glad it at least wasn't for 50 Shades of Grey). I mean, come on, people want trailers before movies, not more commercials, we get plenty of that crap on tv already!
When I tweeted at them I was displeased, I got some generic crap that felt really quite condenscending about how this was to keep prices low and that it was the case with every other cinema as well (which is a blatant lie).
So basically, if it's up to me, I shan't be going to Utopolis again. Sure they're cheap, but if that's the way they treat their customers then they don't get my cash, end of story.
Also: their screens are shit and the sound is always far too loud!
I may pay more at another theatre but at least I won't be coming out of the movie with a splitting headache and feeling nauseous!

I love brogues, so whenever I can (which isn't very often sadly) I try to collect more pairs.

Well I did notice at Kinepolis, the last 2 times I went, they also only showed 1-2 trailers before the movie so ... it does seem to be a kind of trend, unfortunately :/

Urgh, hoe belachelijk XD
Bij UGC spelen ze naar 't schijnt nog altijd meer trailers dan reclame, dus er is hoop.

Nu ja, het slechte scherm en het feit dat de klank altijd veel te luid staat stoort mij meer aan Utopolis dan de reclame.
Die cinema is echt ergerlijk slecht tegenwoordig XD

Volgende keer eens de indi cinema in Lier proberen, die heeft dezelfde prijzen als Utopolis dus als die even fail is dan heb ik ten minste geen cash extra uitgegeven :D

Ik ben denk ik nog maar één keer in Mechelen geweest, en dat was dan in de VIP zaal :P dus op zich viel dat nog wel mee ... alleen vond ik de film die we toen gaan zien zijn niet goed.
