This what happens to cinemas that charges too much for its refreshment counter as well as having tiny screens.

Anybody know which cinema is this?

So, was all that food at the concession stand just left when they closed? Somebody should have told them how dangerous the xenon bulb, that just happened to be out is. Someone also should have told them the difference between a lamp house and a projector [evil]

Anyone notice no rectifier in the console?

Whether or not you like the equipment, seeing the projector going through the booth window makes me sick. That's where I stopped watching.

Stunts or vandalism? Fine line.

Bill: wouldn't be vandalism because they obviously had permission of the owners (who were probably the ones who popped the popcorn, hung up the pretzels and refilled the concession stand).
Everything is obviously staged. I wonder what their insurance bill looks like. Busting all that glass, and pulling down ceilings with no protective eyewear or gear. Interesting they exploded a couple of fluorescent tubes, but not the xenon bulb. Guess you have to draw the line somewhere.
I guess if you just want to see things get "blowed up real good"* it's the perfect show.

Martin... This is redneck demolition... You are expecting waaayyy too much in correct term usage from them. I did note how the set decorator had all the nifty film cans lined up on shelves though.

Mark: Oh, I don't expect anything from them. You'd just kinda hope their "science" guy who is there to do all the 'splaining would at least do his research. Where was all the science anyway? I didn't make it through the whole show.

As usual, I was more distracted by the fakery of "reality shows."

Sometime in the mid 2000s Bravo or one of the channels had a show called "The Reality of Reality", where they took a behind the scenes look at shows like Big Brother. Most of it is staged. Networks are filled with these because they cost little to produce.I noticed more of the recent ones seem to be scripted or completely made up, with my personal favorite "Amish Mafia" being a prime example. At least Hans and Frans destroying a solitary screen in a closed down multiplex didn't have to "act."

"That's a whole lotta camera!"
"That's a whole lotta lens!"

Well geez, I've always wondered how the gears worked inside a lamphouse. Turns out I've been referring to the lens mount as a projector all these years too. The more you know! [Razz]

Fortunately that was the first image of the second link, as I just cannot sit and watch a show with this kind of editing. I just skipped through the first link to find the only slightly amusing part was in the first couple of minutes in the second link. (Tip to moron tough guys...don't try to go against the wall-mounted electrical wireway.)

Joe, what's the term for when a show has 5 minutes of footage and yet they need to stretch it to a 22 minute show, so they turn it into one big self-commercial and show the same shots repeatedly while the actors say the same thing over and over about the same shots they have already shown to the audience a dozen times?

I got thru about 9 minutes of part 1 before I had enough.

I'd expect it probably took longer to finish this demo job up after those clowns got done with it, than the whole job would have taken if real a contractor would have demo'd it.

This show looks like it's produced by the same outfit that produces Pawn Stars, American Pickers and such, with the continuous southern-metal soundtrack and general redneckery of the proceedings. I half expected them to cut to a shot of Chumlee eating popcorn and going "Sweeeet."

Seeing these "demolition videos" on a Cinema forum-would this be like kicking the lion cub in the presence of its mother?The two buffoons smash the projection lamp by throwing it thru an already broken booth window-onto the empty concrete floor-along with the projectors console.In that funky sketch of the console-love the gears in the lamphouse console-they don't show what is in the actual projector mounted onto the front of the console.If the console had the rectifier power supply in it-they wouldn't be able to lift by hand?Another thought-couldn't someone have used the booth equipment they smashed-no platters were shown-did see a glimpse of one.
