The number of advertisements that show before a movie begins has been growing over time. People joke about how the actual movie doesn't start until half an hour after the official time -- leading some people to simply show up late, knowing they won't actually be missing anything. It appears that a Connecticut state representative is fed up with this as well, and is suggesting legislation that would require movie theaters to admit what time a movie really started, so that patrons could plan accordingly.
