which theater do you have to clean up so i can make sure to leave it dirty as fuck?

also, totally srs, why do you have to be 21 to by a rated R ticket for someone that can't prove their age?

What's the weirdest thing you've ever found cleaning up? My friend worked at a theater when we were in high school and he found a small container of vaseline.

On the clock popcorn and soda is free. Plus I get heavily discounted hot dogs, chicken tenders, fries, etc. When I'm not working I have to pay rape prices like everybody else. Free movies but you're only allowed immediate family members and one guest. I still bring in all the homies though.

Nothing has changed much since after the Batman shooting. All the crew had to watch a short video on how to handle a situation if a similar one occurs but other than that management never really talked much about it.

A lot of my theater's guests are old people so nothing crazy happens too often. Someone had a diabetic attack, a couple of old people fell, but surprisingly no ambulances have ever been called since I've been working. As for other situations a couple come to mind, nothing too crazy though. Some kids dine and dashed at a restaurant nearby and cops ran all the way into one of the theaters to arrest them. Kids got busted for smoking in the theater. Some dude dressed in army fatigues brought a knife but it was in a sheath. Security pulled him out and he was chill about it. Still wtf though. Also one of my female coworkers has had a stalker who came in on more than once occasion but he got thrown out and is banned from the theater. Probably the scariest situation involved something similar. At the end of the night we have to take out the trash to the outside compactor at the back of the theater. This is usually like at 1 or 2 in the morning. Pretty dark and shit too. Apparently some dude followed two of my female coworkers the whole time while they did this so they ran back inside and called the cops.

how much should i tip the ticket ripper


Nothing. He literally rips your ticket and sweeps the lobby when it's dead. The hardest job is probably working the concession stand. Lots of rude guests making the most annoying requests.

The guys who cleans your theater busts his ass too, but every once in a while we find some cash. Most I ever found was 5 bucks. I know someone who found 2 bills, but they turned it in though.

I'll continue replying to these in a bit...

the ghettoest thing I've ever seen is one guy paid to get in, then came in the theater and walked around to everyone including me and my friend asking us for our stubs so he could get all his friends into the movie for his friend's birthday. Then he walks outside with all the stubs and gives them to his friends and they come in acting like they paid. They got caught and thrown out lol.

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

Best way to sneak in is buy 1 ticket see 2 movies.

For the underagers, if you try at the box office you will get noticed.
Best way is to have a 17+ friend do recon and see what's playing near the R movie you want to see then sneak in after previews are over. But dont loiter around or be in a group that's what I look for when kicking people out.
Oh and if you make it in make sure you sit in the middle of a row between other people, less likely to be seen.

If the popcorn stale, ask them to make more. That stuf is like 1200% markup and cost the theater nothing to make.
