As a rule the movie was divided in two equal halves and few, if any, distributors cared cared about where the intermission fell. Not even the audiences, actually.
Thus with cretini everywhere.


That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

Two other features of the italian theatre policy in the years before multiplex worth mentioning were:

1) No numbered seats. Even in the most plushy theatres.
2) You could enter the theatre continuously, didn't have to wait for the end of the movie. You could also watch the movie standing waiting for people to leave their seats.
