Now I'm not going to talk about the 25 screens. Nor about the size and smell of the popcorn. This one is about how New Yorkers enjoy their movies. It did help that I saw Hot Fuzz (http://www.hotfuzz.com/) on it's opening night. On the other hand it's a British comedy with relatively unknown actors.
The audience is an active partcipant in the whole show. When an old lady get's squarely kicked in the face (great moment) the audiences yells Noooooooo! When they laugh they holler. They applaud at certain moments. They go up and down like a rollercoaster. And everyone participates, like one big family.
And afterwards there's the joy of coming out of a movie theater and walking on 42nd street.
