Life In The Space-Slime Continuum

| Spokane Valley, WA, USA | Right | July 15, 2011

(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.”

Close Encounters Of The Eighth Kind

| Michigan, USA | Right | July 6, 2011

(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.”

Actors Are Un-Depp-Endable

| East Windsor, NJ, USA | Right | June 21, 2011

(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.”

Ticketing System, Not Ticket In System

| Thousand Oaks, CA, USA | Right | May 17, 2011

(Our theater has two methods of buying tickets. The box office outside, and the indoor computerized ticket kiosks, which accept only credit cards.)

Customer: “Excuse me, can you tell me what that machine does?”

Me: “That’s an automated ticket kiosk. You can avoid lines at the box office by either purchasing tickets from it directly, or picking up will-call tickets.”

Customer: “Well, when is it going to give my ticket back?”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Customer: “I saw the machine, and didn’t know what it did. I put my ticket in here.”

(He points to the credit card slot.)

Customer: “Now, I can’t get it out.”

(I am silent as I try to work out how to respond.)

Customer: “So, can I go see my movie now?”

Me: “No, sir. I’m sorry to inform you that you no longer have a ticket.”
