Once and a while they bulldoze a movie threatre. To build new movie palace or put in a fast food joint or whatever...
In the the Rocky Horror Picture show the audience comes in costume after midnight and chants the lines and all.
In a similar vein, A drinking movie (maybe written after Cannery
Row) is shown and the audience slowly gets so plowed they spend the night, urinate in the aisles, throw up on themselves, philosophize, and generally have a good time. Such an audience involvement movie would work only if the place is to be bulldozed in a few weeks.
The use of fire hoses between showings is recommended.
Plenty of drinking films aleady!

||The problem is the prospective audience will get the idea that it's okay to
trash the place and you won't get drunken philosophers but thieves and
||An Ayckbourne-style dinner party play where the audience eat and
drink the same as the performers would be interesting ... the action of
the play would perforce be in real time.
||If the movie were arty enough maybe there might be
drunken philosopher vandal thieves. Thinking about
those folks, I bet the philosopher piece leads to a
discerning eye when choosing stuff to steal. But
they might bring it home covered with their own
spray paint and barf.
