Every year, Zach and company have complained about horrible movie going experiences. This week, Stephen tells the story of how AMC theaters ruined the Hateful 8.

Hateful Eight Roadshow set for 100 theaters




While racing toward the town of Red Rock in post-Civil War Wyoming, bounty hunter John “The Hangman” Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive prisoner (Jennifer Jason Leigh) encounter another bounty hunter (Samuel L. Jackson) and a man who claims to be a sheriff. Hoping to find shelter from a blizzard, the group travels to a stagecoach stopover located on a mountain pass. Greeted there by four strangers, the eight travelers soon learn that they may not make it to their destination after all.

  1. As someone who also lives in a small town with one theater (Fairbanks, Alaska) I don’t think you’re overreacting at all. I would have had to have driven 8 hours to the nearest city that was projecting Hateful Eight in 70mm film. And if the theater tried to bait and switch me like they did with you I’d be pretty pissed to.

  2. I’m going to be honest. I don’t know whether I would appreciate a 70 mm screening or a digital screening more. I simply haven’t had the experience of seeing 70 mm. However, I believe Stephen has a fair reason to be upset. He traveled a long distance, spent much more money to be shown something he did not expect to be seeing. It was totally unfair for them to not warn the audience of the mistake, and even I would feel cheated at that point. I have yet to see the movie, but this episode has almost made me want to see it in 70 mm. I wish you the best in movie going experiences in the future!
