There’s a movie theater in downtown Phoenix, Arizona that only plays movies from 1987. If you pay for 3 tickets and buy a large popcorn, they will play a film that shows you your future. If you watch the entire film completely, you will have sleeping problems for the rest of your life.

      Yay! A Neil Gaiman fan! FINALLY! He’s one of those amazing writers that no one knows about. But I like it that way. It…makes it like a secret. That only us awesome people know about. Plus, it makes it more exciting when you find someone who also knows who Neil is. :D *high five*

        Er. seriously? Neil Gaiman hasn’t been a secret in quite some time. Or do you not remember a little film called "Coraline?" He’s pretty well-known even outside of geek circles.

        Geek wannabe hipsters are annoying.

      Haha, good one xD I guess if they play a film that shows you your future, but then you stay there to watch the whole film, there’d be a time when you’re just watching yourself watch the film of you watching a film until you DIE! (Yo, Dawg!)
      Well, I found creepy that I was born on 1987 though o_O So either it was a coincidence the author picked that year at random or maybe he/she is the same age as me xD

    I think this pasta would be better if it were something like this:

    There’s a movie theater in downtown Phoenix, Arizona that only plays movies from 1987. If you pay for 3 tickets and buy a large popcorn, they will play a film that shows you your future, starting from when you sit down. You will see your life getting worse and worse, all because of one tiny, small decision you made, totally unaware that it would affect you like that, that things could get that bad from a single choice.

    In the last scene you see yourself, grinning with a bleeding mouth, your descent into insanity obvious. You croak out five words before shooting yourself, blood and gore splattering the screen.

    “That film started it all…”

    That’s just my thoughts, though. :P

    Hello.

    This is clever in ways many are not giving enough credit for.

    Still, the imagination is not effectively stimulated to create the deeper levels of fear.

    Regardless, such a theatre does indeed exist.

    Well, of COURSE you’d have sleeping problems. You just sat through a film a few decades in length. That has got to be a SERIOUS case of sleep deprivation.

    Unless it’s only a highlight reel.

    In which case, it’s more of a teaser of your life than a movie per-se, innit?

    Wonder what the trailer looks like.

    A laundromat, focused on a spinning clothesdryer…

    Then, cut to title:

    “Your Life”

    Fade out, then fade in to:

    “Get one soon”

    No, the twist is that the movie only shows what’s happening 3 seconds in the theatre in real time. Like your movie self takes a swig of soda 3 seconds before you do. Then that raises another question: If your movie self gets up to leave, and yet you don’t, what would happen? Would the screen go black and say “Go away a-hole”?

    The point is if you watch the whole film, you’ll spend the rest of your life doing so. The movie is your lifetime long. You won’t sleep BECAUSE you’re watching it.
