Film fan pays to watch The Grinch at cinema but rumbles them for ‘streaming’ it

12/27/2021

A cinema-goer shared her unusual movie theatre experience on TikTok.

Rachel Moore allegedly caught a worker streaming a Christmas movie classic from Amazon Prime Videos.

She went to her local venue to watch Dr Seuss's The Grinch and was surprised when an Amazon Prime Video page popped up on the screen.

She said: "I 100% went for the experience, I was just surprised they ran on Amazon Prime… I expected a DVD or something."

In the video she posted on TikTok, the staff typed "T" in the search bar and quickly clicked in "Dr Seuess' How The Grinch Stole Christmas".

A man can be heard saying: "Are you kidding me? That's… ouch, man."

He chuckles when he notices the screen showing the option of "resume" or "watch from the beginning".

Staff seemed to run into problems with the stream though as a message popped up saying: "The maximum number of videos is playing on your account.

"To watch this video now, stop watching one of the videos playing on your account.

"It might take 10 minutes before you can begin watching on this device."

Lucky Rachel said she only paid $2 (£1.50) for the ticket because of a promotion – but she admitted that it was a "smart" strategy for the cinema.

"Just wondering if it's legal with Amazon's terms and conditions. But they ended up splurging on the 4K version and rented it for $3 (£2.24)," she commented.

"I felt so bad for the workers. It took them 35 minutes to figure it out, I'm sure they were panicked."

One viewer joked: "Movie theatres splitting one subscription just like the rest of us."

And another laughed: "That Prime account on life support."

Amazon Prime Video listed the "general restrictions" in the terms of use: "You may not use the Service or Digital Content for any commercial or illegal purpose."
