Even without having to finesse the varying preferences of friends, significant others and offspring, settling on what movie to watch can be a challenging task. Some people spend more time combing through their queue than actually watching movies, hemming and hawing over thousands of options before settling on something they've already seen. Leave it to Cinefamily to embrace that familiar level of indecision. The theater's Five Minutes Game has a simple premise: The theater will screen the first five minutes of 15 films, with the idea that every movie should be compelling for at least its first five minutes. After presenting those 15 obscure movies and dabbling in a little Memorial Day barbecue (BYOMeat!), the audience will finish watching the movie that garners the most votes. Democracy at its finest!
