A few years ago I was working in Yemen -- Bin Laden's
paternal homeland. At  all cinemas, patrons were
obliged to check their traditional foot-long daggers
at a sort of cloak room. (They were given numbered
tags in exchange.) This was to prevent stabbings in
the dark during the screenings.

And there was no butter for the popcorn.
