Film previews too long

Recently, we went to see a movie at Turlock Regal Theater. Fifteen minutes before the movie’s scheduled start time, we began to watch the movie trailers/previews of films already showing. The movie we’d come to see didn’t begin until a full 30 minutes after its advertised time. By the time our movie finally began, we had sat through a very long 45 minutes of previews. When our movie began, several members of the audience said, “Finally!”

Please, movie theaters, 15 to 20 minutes of previews is enough! Any longer is frustrating to the audience.
