The ever increasing fines for unauthorized file-sharing, coupled with drastic measures employed against piracy attempts made attending a movie screening prior to its official release to the public a kind of crime-related experience.


Today people have already got used to the requirements to leave all their electronic devices like mobile phones at the theater entrance. However, now the media revealed more detailed information about the security measures implemented by the Motion Pictures Association of America.

Some of the theater visitors started to complain that they have been searched at the entrance, but they weren’t concerned about the very fact of it, but of what was prohibited to the theater. For example, one of the visitors to a 7:30pm showing of Moneyball a week ago (only a couple hours before the film was actually being released) described the same process as everywhere.

In other words, security at the theater entrance made everyone give up their mobile phones and managed to check all bags. But this wasn’t all. The visitors were surprised after they gave up their cell phones, because the security guard waved a metal detecting wand over them and made them to empty all pockets on any hits. During the process, it turned out that one of the visitors had a license to carry a firearm and was carrying it! While everyone thought that would have been a trouble in a center city Philadelphia theater, security simply paid no attention to stuff like that.

It turned out that a loaded handgun is apparently a less threat than a cameraphone to a film that was publicly released a few hours after people had stepped out of the theater. Meanwhile, the DVD screener has been available on file-sharing networks for over three months thus far...

Brynn217 avatarThis is what the MPAA Fails to take in account when trying to compute a fine for downloading movies... I may have downloaded Terabytes, but the amount of movies I attend at the Theater per year has not changed in 30 years... its still the same 1-4 per year... This year so far I have seen 2... 3 if you count the one I paid for my daughter to go see that I didnt.... Now I may see more just to spend time with someone, like a date or my kids... but other than that... my use of filesharing has not cost Hollywood anything because I just woulda have waited for Netflix or HBO..

I did happen to see them searching people last year when I attended a Screener, but it wasn't me, or everyone... and they didnt do anywhere near a perfect job... Now I can see how the Bionic gives the MPAA something to worry about, that phone can do 1080p high def pretty damn easy... but of course, I believe they loose very little, and end up making more with the free advertisement of a GOOD Film... and who says the kid running the projector doesnt have a Bionic?

trolleater avatarwhen they start to search people going to the movies , they will find that more people
will stay at home, i believe if you can afford to pay you should, but when they are searching
me to go to the movies , it will no longer be about paying ... although i have never been
searched and i go all the time.

bigcow2k avatarcool.. next time i'm going to the cinemas, i'll bring a bazooka

geology_guy avatarWhat will happen is more and more people will stop going to the theater...unless they like being humiliated and groped. When I am on call I am required to take my cell phone everywhere. When they start doing it here there will be a big problem. I wonder when the lawsuits will start? Someone somewhere is going to sue them.

Skully_821 avatarWhat a joke, how far will the MPAA go? They seem to want to control every little chance of someone ripping their movies. But this is just plain wrong: I'd expect a metal detector at an airport, but a cinema?

They let a dude with a gun in a cinema but not mobile phones? This world has truly gone mad!!

The flip side is that some people need their phones for on-call work (Paramedics, Police, Doctors etc) so what happens then?

The MPAA wants everything their way, weren't they told as kids that will certainly never happen?! Guess not.
