    I just saw 'The Hobbit" last night. There was an interesting technical malfunction where the movie played the main audio track as well as the audio track for the blind. These means throughout the movie there was a soft voice going "Hobbit stands in front of doorway", or "Large, fat goblin swings his sword". These tracks for the blind are interesting because they can rely on sterotypes for description. For example, suppose Samuel L. Jackson enters a room. The track for the blind might say quickly before he speaks "bald, angry, black man enters the room"

    When I saw Batman Begins there was a lightning storm outside. About halfway through the movie, the power went out. And we sat in the darkness for a few minutes until the emergency lights came on. We waited another 15 minutes until they could start the movie again.

    Back when Top Gun came out I saw it at NAS Pensacola in their theater room. Problem was they only had one working projector. They had to show one reel then stop,rewind,replace with reel 2,start reel,repeat till end of movie.
