AMC theaters has introduced a pre-movie clip warning patrons to be on the lookout for “suspicious characters.” No, not in the movies. In the theater. Quite what constitutes a “suspicious character” is anyone’s guess, but you can’t fault them for trying to get viewers out of Condition White ignorance (the very state of mind movies are designed to create). Then again, what’s going to happen when a movie-goer drops the dime on a fellow audience member? Immediate evacuation? Who’s going to investigate? And if SWATing is a problem – and it is – why not in the theater? Good idea or bad idea?
