How to turn off to disable cinema commercial projectors?

Postby cosmicvoyager » January 10th, 2014, 7:29 am

Greetings,

I used to be able to go to a movie early and sit in peace waiting listening to music. Now the cinema shows continuous loud obnoxious commercials between movies. It is a like a Clockwork Orange.

I am looking for ways to turn off or disable the second projector that is showing the commercials. A TV-be-gone for cinemas.

I wonder if the projectors have any kind of remote control. IR, RF, Bluetooth?

An EMP that will work from a few feet away?

Thanks

I concur, it would cost 5 times as much to go if there were no commercials.

Plus, I assume you realize that the projector itself doesn't drive the sound system, so even if you could turn off the projector, you'd still have to listen to the audio, which sounds like it was your complaint in the first place.

I have a relative that works in the industry. Its all computer controlled from a central hub, and tech support can pull up each screen in each theater and see whats going on. Its all digital, even the lighting and temperature of the room. The movies are distributed to the theaters on encrypted hard drives, too. The theaters themselves have little control over the equipment, just call tech support when its not working and they remote in.
