Crunchy Seats

Empty movie theater seats make masticating sounds.

Not every seat would sound off, but they would all register body weight, and if the theater were sufficiently empty, a few would sound off. This is to preserve the experience of going to the movies, even when the theater is depressingly empty.

       I'll hold my bun for this until you can guarantee there'll be no empty seats that talk all the way through the movie, giving away key plot moments; no empty seats whose cell phones ring every five minutes; and no empty seats that sound like bored, whiny kids.

       Yes, a faint and randomized crunch and ice shake is all you will hear. And it will reduce to no sounds somewhere an hour through.

       It could laugh occasionally too, but only after it detects you laughing so it knows there's something funny.

       Then here's a hot buttered popcorn-flavoured bun, easy on the salt.

       Heh, when I read this I thought the seats would make masticating sounds as if the seats had just swallowed their previous occupants and were smacking their lips.   

       Reading the full description didn't really clear up the confusion; Canuck's post did.
