As an active member of the film community, make it your duty to check out The Moviegoer’s Bill of Rights. The bill was created by moviegoers of all ages and written by Brian S. O’Malley to tell the film industry what we, the paying public, are entitled to:
IV. THE RIGHT TO ENJOY THE END CREDITS WITHOUT THE LIGHTS ON
The paying moviegoer has the right to enjoy the end credits of a movie without having the house lights on. It is our belief that many exhibitors turn on the house lights during the end credits to clear the theater of people as quickly as possible. We believe that by turning on the lights during the end credits, the exhibitor degrades a significant part of the entertainment purchased by the moviegoer.
The Bill of Rights also declares the need for silence during a movie and our collective right to not have to sit through dumb commercials or slide shows.
Read the deed at the The Moviegoer’s Bill of Rights site and sign up to let your loud, film-loving voice be heard…just keep it down during the movie.
