What ever happened to intermissions?

Do you remember the good ole days when a long move also known as a epic had a 10 or 15 minute inter mission so you could go to the bathroom or get a soda or food without missing some of the movie and having to watch it again to see the part you missed. WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO THOSE DAYS????!!!!!!!!!!!

All i am saying is if the studios want to bring out hese long epic movies bring this feature back to the big screen, Everyone wins here the concession stands, the audience, and the studios. So lets all go to the movies and get ourselves a snack!!! LOL Any way tell me if you agree with this or not. I woukd love to hear your opinion.

I went to a PREMIERE (a REAL one) of TITANIC and they DID indeed have intermission. Studio execs and actors were sprinkled in the audience to guage reaction from the viewers. Im sure it all depends on the LENGTH of the movie INCLUDING THE REMAINDER AFTER THE FIRST HALF. Cant break for intermission and the movie ends in 20 minutes. In the old epics, like BEN HUR, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS and classics like THE GREAT RACE, there were 10-15 minute intermissions with the film showing an INTERMISSION SIGN and playing theme music. Those days seem to be gone. I agree that for epic length flicks there should be intermissions.

I dont agree with klownz as after awhile, sitting in yer own shite feels like sitting in drying mud. Squishy and fun at first but then itchy and scratchy and pulling on the hairs of yer arse. . . . . . Not that I would know. . . . . . . . . .

I LOVE THE GREAT RACE. Jack Lemmon is a RIOT along with Peter Falk as the henchman. They steal the show with their "Looney Tunes" antics. I also have enjoyed THOSE MAGNIFICENT MEN. . . all great old school flicks. A better time.
