A friend commented  “WTF – just went online to buy two tickets for the missus & I to see a movie tonight. Very surprised to see that EMPIRE was going to charge me $1.50 per ticket “convenience fee”. Let’s see if I understand this, I’m using my time, computer, printer, paper and not using your employees time to sell me a ticket at the venue and you think I should pay a convenience fee. I can’t help but wonder how stupid EMPIRE thinks we are? I’ll pass on the movie and spend the time downloading it off the interweb.”

The last time I went to a theatre was to see Titanic.
