I've worked at a movie theater in Connecticut for a decade none (not any of the ones mentioned in this article), and can't even fathom how this is possible. The aisles is the vast majority of theaters is barely big enough to walk through, how a person could crawl, go unnoticed, and sift through a woman's purse without being noticed is unfathomable to me. Either these women were incredibly stupid and inattentive to their surroundings, or there's more to this story. I half expect this guys Mug Shot to be released and it turn out that he looks like the midget from Bad Santa.

On a related note however, I did used to make quite a haul on weekend evenings after closing going through the auditoriums and picking up loose change and bills found on the floor. The foreigners we had cleaning overnight caught on pretty quick however, so I eventually had to go out of my way and really fight them for it. Those days are long gone however, most people don't carry cash on them anymore, and the ones that do are more careful with it. The days of teenagers letting a wad of bills fall out of their pocket when they take out their cell phone are long gone.

Mr. Coffee Nerves:

Oh, yeah? Well, every token I find while mopping the booths is MINE to KEEP

Liar. Those booths are NEVER mopped. The screens, buttons and knobs are never wiped either.

Lets talk frankly about internal cleanliness: You get fleeced for several thousand dollars cause some creep stole your credit card, that's your own damned fault for carrying something that's basically as good as cash these days.


Um, you do realize that individuals are not responsible for fraudulent credit card charges, right? If someone steals your card, the only ones who might be "fleeced" out of that money are the credit card company (unlikely) or the stores which accepted it (most likely)... You are never on the hook for it... So, it's no wonder most people feel no need to secure their credit cards, since there are absolutely no consequences to them for failing to do so...

Space considerations aside, how did he manage not to get irretrievably stuck within the first row or two? I know people have said he would have made a sound ripping his body free, but I can't imagine he'd even have been able to do that more than once or twice.

Anyway, you dumb biatches, this is why you either a) don't take a purse to the movies, or b) keep it in your lap like I do.

Birnone: He's probably like that guy in the X-files, can slither through cracks and small openings. I would think the velco-like ripping sound he makes as he unsticks himself every time he moves along the floor would give him away.

I wonder if this was was a theater retrofitted for stadium style seating that personnel can access through a door, and then have removable access panels on the screen-facing portion of the steps... That's the only plausible explanation I can think of.  He can remain undetected the entire time and spend an entire movie looking for easy opportunities.
