Scorsese's Lengthy Epic 'Killers of the Flower Moon' Sparks Theater Tango

Martin Scorsese's latest masterpiece, clocking in at a marathon three hours and 26 minutes, is causing a stir in theaters, sparking a debate over intermissions and the sanctity of a director's vision.

In a quirky turn of events, independent theaters took matters into their own hands, sneaking in unauthorized breaks during screenings of Scorsese's magnum opus, 'Killers of the Flower Moon.' This clandestine move, sparked by a viral photo of an intermission sign at a Colorado theater, caught the attention of the film's creators, leading to a swift intervention.

Audiences, pleased with the impromptu pauses, welcomed the chance to grab extra popcorn and a refill, stretch their legs, and not miss a minute of the gripping tale set in the 1920s amid murder and intrigue on Osage Nation land.

Yet, the studio's iron hand has put an end to this guerrilla intermission trend. An anonymous source reveals, "People were big fans of it. We were going to keep doing it going forward with longer movies, but now it doesn’t seem like an option."

Scorsese, renowned for his marathon movies, defends his lengthy storytelling, urging audiences to respect the cinematic experience. Meanwhile, with stars like Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro, 'Killers of the Flower Moon' stands strong as an Oscar contender despite its box office triumph.
