How bleedin' long do the adverts last?

The inside of a cinema

Can you help us with a little survey? It's all about one of our pet hates, and it gives us another chance for a rant...

Which cinema chain subjects you to the most adverts?

To answer the question, we need to do two things. Firstly, we need you to click the comments box, tell us what fleapit you went to and how long it was between the advertised time of the film and the time it actually started.

Secondly, we need to rant. I paid a tenner to see Spider-man 3 in London last week. For that, I got an uncomfortable chair, piracy warnings and advert after advert after advert. That's before the trailers. In all, I reckoned the film started 20-25 minutes after the time publicised on the outside of the cinema.

Can anyone beat that? It was the Odeon on Tottenham Court Road. Nice pick and mix, though...
