  • The Secret World of the Film Usher

    The Guardian has an article about ushers, and what they have to go through, seemingly for not a lot of money. The stories are pretty hair raising - can anyone top them?

    Quite terrifying I would imagine would be the scenario of a secret service agent having to dress in usherette's drag and deal with perpetually noisy audience members
