question of the day: What’s the weirdest thing that’s ever happened to you at the movies?

Here’s a new daily feature, just a little something to jumpstart conversation. Today:

What’s the weirdest thing that’s ever happened to you, or that you witnessed, at the movies?

I can’t remember what the movie was, but I was at a multiplex in Manhattan with a few friends, and after the movie had started a man came in hauling a shopping cart — not the kind you use in the supermarket, but the kind people who live in places like New York, where we don’t own cars, use to haul our groceries home (or to drag laundry to and from the laundromat). We don’t typically haul those carts to the movies, though, but those carts are also used by homeless people to haul their stuff around. And the New York multiplexes did used to be a refuge for the homeless, sometimes, as a place to get out of the weather and sit down for a while, but not so much anymore, with tickets prices around $12.

So I figured this man was probably homeless or just eccentric… and he proved the eccentricity by, during the movie, removing from the cart, one at a time in succession, baby rabbits that he stroked and cuddled for a few minutes each. And then he got up and left before the movie was over, taking the rabbits with him.
