They used to clap along to the plug for the theatre chain--it happened at all Century theatres, I think. The music was the kind you could clap along to. They changed their intro about 8-9 years ago and it stopped.
Don't know about before the movie, but they used to clap after the intermission went overtime to encourage them to start the movie again.
I liked the intermission. I liked the way the usherettes came into the aisles to sell ice cream. It was at that stage in the movie that I felt I wanted an ice cream, not the beginning. Bring back the intermissions. (I am also fed up with taking my kids to the bathroom half way through a movie - bring back intermissions).
Agreed with "bring back intermissions"...better yet, cut out the extra 20 minutes that I find are usually just "time fillers" in the modern movies ( to make them the new requisite 2 hours instead of the old 90 minutes) and horribly boring..and get the movie back to only the good stuff. Like cropping out the unnecessary in a photo.
That was right before the started those damned Fandango ads before the movies, and it was as someone said for the Syufy/Century theater chain. I think the parent corporation changed.
Boom Boom Boom, Boo-Boo-Boo, Boo-Boo-Boo ....
Hey, I remember when they use to play "let's go out to the lobby ... to get .... something or other ...." ;-)
But then I also remember when they use to have double features, and started each show with cartoons and movies were only $2.00 ... and usually were better. They had ushers and did not let people come in late, or make noise or kick the back of your seat.
