Bloomberg may have paid for the production of the ads, but I bet they got the theaters to play them for free as PSAs.

Good thing movie theattres are dieing and NOONE goes to them anymore (ones near me have discounted tickets, severely discounted M-Thr, all day, Fri -Sun before 5.  Same for snacks.  During those hours, extremely reduced staff too, and you buy your tickets at the concession stand,

Yet another reason NOT to go to a movie theater.  Now they're playing leftist political ads before the movie?!

A lot of eyeballs present and most people have their cell phones down with their full attention on the screen during the previews. 

 

I saw a movie with my wife a few weeks ago in Joliet and they played one of those ads.  First movie we saw in the theater in years and one of the first things we see is a thinly veiled anti-gun PSA.  I looked down at the bottom of the screen at the end of the ad and I see a who's who of anti-gun organizations listed. 

 

I just shook my head and reminded myself why we don't pay to see movies in the theater anymore.  But plenty do, especially the impressionable youth that either vote or will soon be eligible to vote.

Movie attendance is trending down.

 

Streaming and other similar services POPULAR with younger audiences are one reason.

The irony of people seated in a Gun Free Zone not realizing they cannot defend themselves.

IF for some reason I find myself PAYING to see a movie and get THAT shoved in my face,

I will exit and demand my money back, and make SURE the manager knows WHY this is happening.
