On this episode, I am joined by fellow Smug Film contributors Jenna Ipcar and Ned Martin. We discuss all things movie theaters—from our best and worst movie theater experiences, to the best theaters we’ve ever been to. As always, we go on tangents along the way, take a quick break for a movie joke by comedian Anthony Kapfer, and close the show with questions from our mailbag.
If you have a question for the show, leave it in the comments or email us at Podcast@SmugFilm.com.

If you don’t know what Netflix Longies is, go read the first paragraph of Netflix Longies #1. I don’t feel like having to write it out again or copy and paste it or whatever. Anyway, here we go:

That’s the kind of music I was raised on, instead of Raffi or Barney or whatever. And there’s a channel on Time Warner Cable, in the MusicChoice section, called R&B Classics (channel 608 in NYC) and pretty much every night I’m listening to that while working on my laptop. It’s just calming as all hell.

I realize it’s a little presumptuous to say you’ve never seen these movies. Some of you out there may have seen a few, but some are so rare I’m almost certain they have only been seen by like one dude other than myself. And some, I’m sorry to say, are virtually unavailable. So you may have to do some digging. But it’s more than worth it.
10. Audience of One (2007) | Dir. Mike Jacobs | 88 min.
I had the pleasure of seeing this little-known documentary at a bar in Brooklyn a few years ago. Rather than wax on about how great it is, I’ll just tell you what it’s about, because you’ll immediately want to see it.
