How would you like to go to a movie theater that had black walls on each side of your seat so you couldn't talk/be annoyed by the people next to you, a theater you couldn't come into late, and one where you couldn't even get up once the flick started to go to the bathroom or get some popcorn?

Josh Glenn at The Boston Globe has an interesting story about Invisible Cinema, an experiment from 35 years ago by avant-garde filmmaker Peter Kubelka.

We have drive-ins and art houses and now restaurants where you can sit down and have dinner while watching movies, so someone should try something like this again. But without, you know, the you-can't-eat-or-go-to-the-bathroom rules.
