Who’s watching you watching the movie?

The Odeon cinema chain has put CCTV cameras in nine of its venues across the country to “ensure the safety and security of audience members”, it says. The nation must put a stop to this blatant misuse of technology. To quote a couple of classic songs “Saturday Night at the Movies” will never be the same again. And who is going to want to be “Sitting in the Back Row of the Movies” if your every move is being monitored by some bored cashier who’s run out of punters to flog popcorn to? Or perhaps Odeon is hoping that amorous and unwary cinemagoers will offer a bit of “user-generated content” to accompany the film trailers on its website?
