So last Saturday I was working another shift at ticket sales/concessions (my theater has that feature combined, so much fun) and in walks a couple, heading straight for the register.
They come up to me and ask me what movies we are showing right now. (Goddammit people, check the app before hand or check the screens, be informed for fucksake)
I tell them there is a movie starting right now called My Cousin Rachel and the next movie would start in about 50 minutes, Pirates of the Caribbean, after that Spider-Man and Wonder Woman.
Our final two shows would be in about one and a half hours, not the definition of now.
Idiot Guy (IG): "But do you have any movies starting now?"
Me: "Yes, My Cousin Rachel starts now, it's more of an arthouse kind of movie about a guy being raised by his uncle and the uncle dying under suspicious circumstances"
IG: "But do you have any other movies?"
Me: "Yes, in about 50 minutes, we are showing Pirates of the Caribbean, but that is in 50 minutes, so not now."
IG: "I don't want to see a kids movie, do you have anything else?"
Me: "Pirates of the Caribbean is not a kids movie, it's the fifth installment of a large franchise. With Johnny Depp...
But we also have Spider-Man in just over an hour, or Wonder Woman 15 minutes later."
IG: "We don't wanna see kids movies, why are you guys showing kids movies."
And this went on for some time, them calling perfectly non-kids movies, kids movies and me trying to explain that they aren't kids movies,
while trying my best not to face-desk and remain professional.
At last they left and didn't go to the movies,
they did inquire about The Mummy and were like "Last week that showed earlier" to which It responded that the movie was older so taken away from prime time.
But come on, can't people just check beforehand what movies are showing, we have screens with screening times, we have posters with screening times, there is a very convenient, free,
easy to use (most of the time) app which shows our screening times and which ever theater from our branch you want to go to... And don't call our 12+ rated movies kids movies, goddammit.
