(At our theater we have a movie poster for the 4th installment of a popular children’s movie franchise in 3D. Because of this, it says that the movie will be in 4D. I overhear this exchange between two teenage customers in the lobby.)

Customer #1: “What’s the difference between 3D and 4D?”

Customer #2: “3D is when stuff pops out at you and 4D is when it gets you wet.”

(I am working in the box office on a slow afternoon. A customer comes in and stares at the board for few minutes.)

Customer: “What is the difference between Super 8 and Super 8-D?”

Me: “The ‘D’ means those showtimes are digital instead of 35mm.”

Customer: “Oh, I thought maybe it was in eight dimensions.”

(We have the new ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ movie playing in three theaters. There are three boards, with three show-times, and three different actors. A customer wants to see a showing that has an actor other than Johnny Depp listed.)

Me: “Hi, can I help you?”

Customer: “Yes, is Johnny Depp in the 1:10 showing of Pirates Of The Caribbean?”

Me: “Yes, that board just has another actor listed.”

Customer: “Oh, okay. Just making sure.”
