I used to think movies were just projections on a screen. But that was before Nosferatu stepped out:

Dear Film Geek,
Seriously: rookie mistake. The scenes depicted on movies and television are real phenomena, and the screens that display them are notoriously permeable. You might just be watching television, when suddenly a spooky clown hand pops out:
Or maybe you’re admiring yourself in the mirror, when suddenly a ghost stops in to say hi:
Which, I mean, duh, mirrors.
Ghouls also tend to be partial to doors:

In fact, there’s hardly any surface that a monster won’t jump out of:
Given this, it seems unreasonable for the town to blame your movie theater should a single demon happen to be let loose through its screens. Most towns are literally covered in surfaces. If the demons come, it’s really their own fault.
Hope this helps,
