This is a movie theatre that has special seats designed to deliver any number of specialized enemas for your colon cleansing pleasure.

Meanwhile, movies especially picked to take your mind off the procedure are playing, such as "Freddie Got Fingered (By The Mob)", "Fire Down Below", "Popeye" and "Don't Look Now", with many more titles playing each week.

Ask about our franchise opportunities!

       It takes a special type of mind to dream this stuff up.   

       On second thought... No, I'm sticking with 'special'.

       Before even browsers existed, I was reading Usenet as one is wont to do, and someone posted about a stomach upset advert which showed an unhappy couple leaving a movie theatre, but there was no title on the marquee. So...what was the name of the movie?   

       Names I remember:
"A river runs through it"
"The big easy"

       Do not GoLightly into that good night
Old arses burn and strain at close of day;
Rage, rage against the colonoscopic light.
  

       Though wise men at their ends know not to fight,
Because their mouths had forked no supper they
Do not GoLightly into that good night.

       Au, Contraire, [2 fries]! These are the finest modified theatre seats that money can buy on sale and at wholesale prices heavily discounted. The custom plumbed hardware in the center of the seat is even replaced with brass fixtures for the showing of the movie "Goldfinger." You'll feel stirred, not shaken.

       I've been to one of these places, and I have to say that the picture quality was awful. I think the projectionist was just going through the motions.
MaxwellBuchanan, Sep 30 2012
  

       "Run Silent, Run Deep"?   

       I feel a strong urge to express my understanding that colon cleansing is a bunch of hooey.   

       On the occasions that I have felt an enema would be useful for clearing blockages, the last two things I wanted were anything prodding about my sensitive areas, and to be sitting upright.

       If it was a big cinema, and not well maintained, it could well be a case of"20,000 Leaks Under The Seat" …

       It would be interesting to compare the appeal of the enema to the appeal of the film.

       ...and still nobody has mentioned 'Back Passage to India'.

This whole set of annos reminds me of that Irwin Allen TV series about the submarine. You know the one. Voyage to the Bottom of the Barrel.

       Monty Python's 'The Cleaning of Wife'.   

       And then we could have the theatre version with some Shaking-spear: Romeo and Scrapey-jet, All's Well that Ends Well and Coriolanus will be the opening performances.
TomP, Oct 03 2012
  

       Seconded.   

       'special seats designed to deliver any number of specialized enemas for your colon cleansing pleasure'   

       All right. How exactly do these seats insert a tube rectally without disturbing the subject's enjoyment of the films? Or that of other movie goers?
Phrontistery, Oct 06 2012
  

       //...How exactly...//   

       Very carefully.   

       First, we explain the principle of... Look, SQUIRREL !!!   

       There, that wasn't so bad, now was it? Relax and enjoy tonight's feature presentation, "Something Wicked This Way Comes."

       You haven't worked that bit out yet.
Phrontistery, Oct 06 2012
  

       More a case of he hasn't worked that one in, it would seem.   

       The adjective "enjoyable" does seem to imply that patrons of the establishment are most likely to choose a rather narrow and specific range of viewing material of the type usually sent in a plain, unmarked wrapper.
8th of 7, Oct 06 2012
  

       Please feel free to take one of our tasty after dinner mints on your way out of the theatre! And don't forget next week's feature movie, "The Naked Spur," an old western classic sure to have you riding tall in the saddle.
