Here Are 25 Movie Ticket Stubs You Can Buy on eBay For Some Reason

As a movie lover, I’ve collected a lot of stuff over the years. I have an old 16mm projector reel sitting on my windowsill. My Blu-ray collection is dotted with little figures and models of famous movie characters and vehicles. I understand the urge to want to memorialize great movies and great moviegoing experiences. I even saved a few of my ticket stubs over the years. But I’ve never had the slightest urge to buy someone else’s ticket stub to a movie I didn’t see (or at least not at that day and location).

A Step-by-Step Consumer Guide to Good Theater Projection

Rarely a week goes by these days without someone proclaiming movies dead or dying or zombified and feasting on the brains of their victims. (That’s what you get for turning your brain off at the theater!) Mainstream Hollywood has seen better days, but film as an art form is just fine; in a world where Moonlight, The Handmaiden, Arrival, and Loving are all competing for screen space, there’s still life left in movies yet. I’m more concerned about movie theaters, where the presentation of those films seems to get worse every single year.

The Criterion Collection Leaves Hulu on November 11

The good news is that the Criterion Collection is partnering with Turner Classic Movies to create a new, classic-movie-focused streaming service called FilmStruck. That launches on October 19 with hundreds of movies, new original content, tailored recommendations, and supplemental materials. The bad news is that means the Criterion is leaving Hulu, its streaming home for a number of years. Starting on November 11, FilmStruck becomes Criterion’s exclusive streaming home, and Hulu loses its Criterion site.

TCM and Criterion’s FilmStruck Streaming Service Launches October 19

About six months after its initial announcement, FilmStruck, the new streaming service collaboration between Turner Classic Movies and the Criterion Collection, launches this month. Starting on October 19, you’ll be able to watch what the company calls “the largest streaming library of contemporary and classic arthouse, indie, foreign and cult films as well as extensive bonus content, filmmaker interviews and rare footage.” Later this year, FilmStruck will also become the exclusive streaming home for Criterion’s library, although you’ll need to pay extra for the so-called “Criterion Channel.”

Joss Whedon Launches Get Out the Vote Campaign With the Help of a Whole Bunch of Avengers

Joss Whedon quit Twitter back in 2015 after he decided that the social media platform’s pervasive negativity, anger, and outright hatred was too toxic to endure. (Where could he possibly get that idea from?) But this morning, like a phoenix or vampire slayer rising from the ashes, Whedon returned to Twitter with a new handle, and a new project: A get-out-the-vote campaign called Save the Day.

A Small Issue at Movie Theaters Is Becoming a Major Problem

Going to the movies in 2016 can be a frustrating situation. People texting on their phones. Exorbitant ticket prices. People talking on their phones. Sound that’s either way too loud or way too soft. People taking pictures of the screen with their phones and then posting them to Facebook in the middle of the movie. For a lot of these problems, there’s no easy solution. An experience designed to take us away from our everyday troubles is now fraught with them.

‘Sully’ Review: Clint Eastwood and Tom Hanks’ Take on American Heroism

Even by the standards of a biopic about an incredibly famous man at the center of an incredibly famous real-life event there isn’t a ton of suspense in Sully. Everyone who was alive and conscious on January 15, 2009 remembers what happened that day, when Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger safely landed US Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River after the plane was struck by birds during takeoff.(I certainly do; I’d just arrived at my condo for the Sundance Film Festival and watched the rescue efforts unfold on live television.)
