Tucker: Bring back intermissions
Placeholder Image
The popular web site Slate says intermissions should be brought back to movie theaters. A bit of history for the whippersnappers among us: movies originally had intermissions because, as Slate explains, they were shot on multiple reels of film, and it took time to change the reels as the movie progressed. When theaters began using multiple projectors, intermissions began disappearing for all but the lengthiest movies.
