Saturday went to watch Kusa Paba at Savoy. The show time was 7.00PM. But they actually started at 7.25. what the hell happened during that 25 minutes … F#&%&#g advertisements. Well! 2-3 movie trailers and the rest of the time ads. Also after the intermission another 15 minutes on ads. It was so annoying. We are paying and getting a ticket and these idiots are showing us ads. I got really pissed and complained the manager. His simple answer was ‘Cant maintain these theaters otherwise’ … now! what kind of a messed up answer is that.
No wonder people don’t go to watch Sinhala movies much … which explains why the local show business is in such a crap stage. I will never go to see a movie in a EAP theater until they stop this nonsense.
P.S. After renovating the theater and building the new theaters Majestic Cinemas have stopped playing ads. Thanks!
