You'll Think Twice About Sneaking Into Movies After Reading This

Posted on Monday, March 4th, 2013 10:39 AM by Scott Jentsch

Have you ever sneaked into a movie playing in another auditorium after watching the movie you paid to see? Some people admit to doing it when they were kids (essentially spending the day for the low price of one movie ticket) and I'm sure that more than a few adults have done the same. You may think twice after hearing about what happened to one couple when they decided to see two movies for the price of one at the Goodrich Portage 16 in Portage, Indiana.

According to an article in the Post-Tribune, a couple was seen exiting one auditorium and entering another by two off-duty police officers hired to work security at the theater.

When asked for their tickets, the couple allegedly began checking their pockets and eventually said they didn’t have them any longer. They also couldn’t explain why both of them didn’t have tickets.

“But Mrs. Harbin stated, ‘I know we done wrong,’  ” the report states.

When asked why they did so, the couple allegedly replied that it was a first-time offense. They explained they were at a funeral all day and “just were not thinking correctly.”

When pressed on the issue, they admitted they did indeed sneak into movies there “three to four other times” in the past.

“Both subjects were taken into custody without incident and transported to Porter County Jail where they were released into their custody,” the report states. “They are both being charged with Theft D felony and held on bond.”

While the circumstances surrounding the arrest have created some controversy, and I can't imagine that the felony charge will stick, it should make people think twice about theater-hopping at their local multiplex.
