Movies have intermissions?? Not hardly!

  • I know that in the 60ies, long movies such as Ben-Hur used to have intermissions. It's not very common this days, I'm not sure why it's abandoned. It's especially strange since movies are getting longer and longer. -- User:Johan Dahlin
  • Two that I can think of (Not sure about the first), LoTR, and titanic. Just still unsure if this isn't a dictdef. Gamera2


Here is a report of at least one theatre in Iceland that still has intermissions even if they are not built into the movie. How widespread is this? -- Beland (talk) 01:06, 3 October 2013 (UTC)

Last "mainstream" film with an intermission[edit]

First, the source provided does not mention any film (mainstream or otherwise) as the last one to have an intermission. Next, Gettysburg (1993) IMO barely qualifies as mainstream. Branagh's Hamlet (1996) was released three years later. Now I would agree that it also has problems if one wants to describe it as mainstream. My suggestion would be to remove the sentence about Gettysburg completely and just leave the reference with the info that it applies to. MarnetteD|Talk 03:42, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

Indian Cinema[edit]

The section Bollywood should be renamed as Indian Cinema because intermission is part every Indian film released whether it is Tamil or Telugu or Malayalam. Even hHere it is given "especially Bollywood" but actually every Indian cinema has interval. Bollywood means it refers to only 250 out of 1500 films released in India. Interval is common to all Indian film industries not Bollywood alone. I hope you will look into it. Thank you. (Ganeshiyer3000 (talk) 14:42, 27 June 2015 (UTC))

Thanks for mentioning this Ganeshiyer3000. IMO it is a good suggestion. Why don't you go ahead and make the change when you see this message. Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 16:25, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

Alexander (2004)[edit]

Why does Alexander (2004) keeps being deleted after I add it at the Films section? It has an intermission. Luigi97 (talk) 01:00, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

Indian Cinema and Intermission driven story and drama structure[edit]

I'm not sure how to do this properly, but it should be mentioned that pieces that include intermission (like indian movies or even early hollywood movies that did, and plays etc) are often specifically designed with the intermission in mind. THis is importnat to realise in the case of indian movies where even home viewings/DVD etc have the "intermission card", most indian movies, for example, seem to have been written with this break in mind, not just as a natural breaking point in the story but also with the idea that the "intermission" may represent a 15-20 minute break where the viewer returns to reality and comes back after the break. This is unlike TV Shows for example, where, while breaks (in the form of commercials) exist, and some shows may even be written to accomodate such a break, but their natural and intended structure is NOT with a break, and in fact watching without a break may not even make a difference or even make things better. OTOH, with movies that are designed around such a break, watching without that natural break may actually DIMINISH from the effect that said movie or play intended to have. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2607:FEA8:6DF:FACA:70EE:ACEA:2B34:3C16 (talk) 02:25, 22 April 2018 (UTC)

Movie list[edit]

Since the movie list was deleted, I wonder if someone who knows how to create a wikipedia category for Movies With An Intermission could create one? Then the pages for the individual movies removed from this list could be edited (by anyone who cares) to include that new category? Rjmail (talk) 23:00, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
