Nothing Goes Better with Sushi than Roland Emmerich

As you went out to 10,000 B.C. and watched our more hirsute ancestors scrounge for food, who didn't imagine dining on something raw at the same time? Well, a group of investors hope to make your dreams come true. According to an article in Variety by Marc Graser, Village Roadshow Ltd., Act III, Lambert Entertainment and the Retirement Systems of Alabama pension fund (Yes, you read that correctly. Pity Alabama retirees now) are teaming to bring luxury movie theaters to the United States. The business plan is to build 50 theaters across the U.S. offering moviegoers the chance to pony up $35 for a ticket to College Road Trip. Of course, there are perks. Graser's article says, "Each complex will sport theaters featuring 40 reclining armchair seats with footrests...as well as a lounge and bar serving cocktails and appetizers, a concierge service and valet parking...the circuit will especially push its culinary offerings -- made-to-order meals like sushi and other theater-friendly foods from on-site chefs (a service button at each seat calls a waiter). Moviegoers will have to pay extra for any food they order, however." I bet you thought movie audiences were obnoxious now, treating theaters as if they were in their living rooms, chatting on cell phones and being generally annoying. Imagine how they will act if they spend that much for a movie and then a waiter gets the order wrong! Unfortunately, there is no mention of my most long-sought after theater goodie: ushers with stun guns to shut these idiots up so I can enjoy my movie in peace. Maybe these "luxury" seats would be something I'd go for - provided they come with a cone of silence like on Get Smart.
