Connecticut Moviegoers Are Dumb
June 24, 2011 12:24 PM
TREE OF... ZZZZZ
"Brad Pitt in movie! I like him! He famous! We want see
Tree of Life.
How many tickets? Ummm. This many!"
And the Stamford, Connecticut moviegoer holds up three chocolate-stained fingers.
Echoing an incident where the
Alamo Drafthouse had to take an incompetent theatergoer to task
Avon Theatre Film Center
was forced to address the numerous requests for refunds following
The Tree of Life
showtimes. Written and directed by celebrated cinema auteur Terrence Malick, the film chronicles the lives of a 1950s Texas family. It features some very surreal themes and doesn't follow a typical narrative.

So, folks expecting Brad Pitt as Mr. Smith fighting Nazis while knocking over a casino were sorely disappointed. In fact, so many customers apparently asked for a refund that the
theater management had to post a sign
-- originally captured by Twitter user
Unfortunately, since the sign doesn't feature easy-to-decipher pictographs, it likely went unnoticed.
But their response is not only a testament to the sheer unpredictability of cinema, but an indictment against the mouth-breathers who prevent most people from enjoying a movie on a Friday or Saturday night.
Looks like my reliance on Netflix, iTunes, YouTube, Hulu, and a widescreen TV will remain unabated.
