Mal, do cinemas in the US consistently start their movies 20 minutes later than the announced times, forcing you to sit through a barrage of braincell-murdering commercials?

The last movie I went to in the US (2 years ago) had just 2 short trailers for upcoming films, nothing more. Definitely not like here with 20 something minutes of unbearable commercials.

No, that part is different - the only advertising (if you can call it that) is at most 2-3 coming attractions, i.e. new movies that will be released in the coming months. That’s all from my recollection.
Exactly. There, the movie start time is pretty much exactly when the actual show starts. Here, the start time is simply a suggestion, the actual film usually starts 20 minutes later.
