Hello everyone!
I bet I've come to the right place with the kind of request I have.
Here's the deal: I'm holding a presentation at the end of August. It will have to do with cinemas. I've decided I want it to be in Futurama style, apparently (you know, the slides' backgrounds and such). And here's where I need your help!
I would really, really appreciate it if you could give me the episodes and approximate timing of scenes in or outside the movie theatres. It could be someone sitting in the darkness of the cinema, or robots standing in line at the entrance, no matter. In fact, a view of any auditorium that looks similar will do.

For starters, here's what I've got on top of my mind:
Season 3 episode 15 "I dated a robot". Timing ~16:08->the ending, a large scene in the movie.

Well I really hope for your help, and I'm sure that it would be an awesome presentation! smile

Can't give timings off the top-of-my-head, but here are some episodes that have theatres from memory:

1ACV05 - Fear of a Bot Planet
2ACV08 - Raging Bender

In fact, a view of any auditorium that looks similar will do.

I suppose you could use scenes from 4ACV18 - The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings and 7ACV04 - The Thief of Baghead for this one. Perhaps 6ACV21 - Yo Leela Leela, too.

oh, another episode came to mind: s02ep08, "Raging Bender", 1:28 - 6:08

yep, DannyJC13, you came first, thanks! Well yeah, the exact timing is not that necessary (an occasion to re-watch the whole episode, hehe)

Don't forget the huge crowd scene at the end of Into the Wild Green Yonder.

wow, I didn't really expect for someone to answer so quickly, thanks man, you've helped a lot already! big grin

Btw, I think there might have been some open air cinemas also

If it only has to be cinema themed, there's also the easter egg posters from the season 1 DVDs

There's also the scenes in which the professor screens films for people like Fry, if any of those count.

Off the top of my head, there's one earlier on in "I Dated a Robot", "Crimes of the Hot" and possibly some others.

They also visit Hollywood in "The Cryonic Woman" and "That's Lobstertainment!" if that's of any use. There's some shots outside the famous Chinese theatre. In fact, "That's Lobstertainment!" definitely has some scenes in a cinema, thinking about it - when they watch Harold Zoid's film for example.

Oh, and they visit a video rental store at the start of "Where No Fan Has Gone Before". Not quite the same, but again, it might be useful.

Also, I seem to remember Fry walking past a cinema in "Rebirth" with it showing "Blade Runner".

In "The Lesser of Two Evils," they walk past a movie theater with a marquee that reads "Star Wars 9: Yoda's Bar Mitzvah." This is early in the episode when they are visiting an Old New York-esque exhibit called Past-O-Rama.

This might garner some extra chuckles considering that a yet-unnamed "Star Wars:Episode IX" will actually be made relatively soon.
