Cinemuck – n. The combination of popcorn, soda, and melted chocolate which covers the floors of movie theaters.
So what exactly is this sticky stuff my sneakers under my sneakers when I go to sit down in my fluffy stadium seat at the Regency 11 Theater? That is CINEMUCK! It’s a thin sticky film that coats the non-carpeted part of the floor in the movie theatre you came into. It’s an unknown ratio of several kinds of movie theater snacks, the biggest part of which is soda pop, which give the perfect base for other items like popcorn, Goobers, Jujubes, and Raisinets to adhere to. You never really think about the cinemuck while you are watching the movie, and possibly adding more goo to its mixture while you enjoy the show. You could care less about where you are being entertained while you are being entertained. The cinemuck, on the other hand, is always going to be there, absorbing more concession fuel as it grows under your feet. You will remember the cinemuck when the movie is over, and the rubber soles of your shoes are a little bit stuck to the floor, but that feeling leaves as soon as you find the sanctuary of the carpet, and the cinemuck is forgotten about until you visit the theatre again. No matter what theater it is, from a single screen, one night showing in a tiny town, to a Multiplex 32 in a huge megalopolis of a city, one thing is always the same. The cinemuck, and the stuff that made it come together.
