Can you give me examples of scenes in film or television either featuring two characters clandestinely meeting up in a movie theater to exchange intelligence/money/drugs, or in which an assassin goes to the movies to kill his mark? Is there a TV Tropes name for this? I seem to remember one specific example of this happening in a theater showing X-rated footage, but can't pin it down.
These were printed schedules, I think four color, listing the monthly movie schedule for the Ogden Theater in Denver in the 80s. They were everywhere at the time, and are apparently nowhere now. But there must be some floating around somewhere, scanned or no, and I need them. It's, um, an emergency. Yeah, emergency! [more inside]
I would like to see Mockingjay Part 2 today. The nearby theater is playing it in standard format. A slightly farther-away theater is playing it in XD with Auro sound for twice the price. I have never been to farther-away theater, and a few online reviews of the theater say that the Auro sound system isn't great. I am concerned that the surround-sound may make it seem like the audio is not matching the video, which is a pet peeve, something I've noticed with in-home older surround-sound systems, and something that makes it impossible for me to concentrate on a film, but I have no idea if that's a valid concern. Is it a valid concern? Is XD worth twice as much as standard format? (I don't really understand what "XD" is -- is it just high-definition? -- so feel free to explain that to me, too.) [more inside]
Hey Brilliant Minds! Happy Monday :) I'm wondering if you might point me in the direction of any films, books, tv, plays, etc. that utilize a classic hero's journey structure (Joseph Campbell) from a feminist perspective and/or have a female protagonist. Thanks so much!
Hey There Everyone, I'm looking for examples in movies, TV, theater, fiction, non-fiction, etc. that show older children being rescued and adopted by people who they are not related to. Thanks so much!
I've got a notion to organize a movie screening of some sci-fi movie at a local theater, and sell tickets. It seems to me that the easiest legal way to do this is to buy the performance rights and rent a screen at a franchise theater. Assuming I know ahead of time what those costs are, Kickstarter could be the ticket sales mechanism. [actual question inside] [more inside]
I'm trying to find the name of an old short film (circa 70's-90's) about a Foley artist / showman performing Foley sound effects live to a film that is being projected in an ornate theater, with a number of props laid out in front of him. [more inside]

My sister panics in trivial social situations. Immersing herself in everyday social encounters is not helping her make any progress, so I'm looking for ways she can feel more comfortable in social situations. [more inside]
