Ummm, excuse me, I changed my mind...

What is the protocol re going into a multi complex cinema, finding you are in a dud movie that you have just paid $16 for, then maybe just popping into another cinema to catch a different movie? I found myself leaving a movie today and would have maybe skipped into a different cinema except I was so traumatised by the dud movie that I just had to leave completely. I did want to approach a representative of the cinema to say, look that movie was awful, I didn't stay, could I have at least half my money back? I guess it's buyer beware and the onus is on the cinema goer to research what is around — which is the downside of just turning up and taking your chances. Still, I have seen some pretty good movies just turning up and even enjoyed some that have had some out and out bad press...

I've done both...
#1 I left 'The Bear' as at the time I was traumatised by the death of my kitten and couldnt handle any animal death stuff. I got a refund,...although I was eight and sobbing.
#2 My friend Alex and I would buy one movie ticket for Knox cinema in the morning and screen jump for the entire day, sometimes we wouldnt even buy a tickek - just follow a women with lots of kids yelling mummmmm as she turned a corner,,,, although I was also 9-10 at the time
