Although we chuckle, these cinemas do draw good crowds. Be it for novelty, date-night, or pure comfort, with admission pricing in the $25-50 range per person it may be the cinebed theatres that have the last laugh.

A spokesperson for the US Navy's Fifth Fleet acknowledged that the 'fake' ship exists and that, "it is akin to a Hollywood set, it's not an actual warship. It is made to look like one of ours. It's a bit of a head-scratcher as we don't know what the purpose of it is."
However, Iranian newspapers have reported that, "it is part of the decor" of a movie being made by the Iranian director Nader Talebzadeh. "The issue has turned into a good excuse for another wave of hype against Iran", says the Irani news website Alef, "Without any proof or real basis, western media have jumped again to paint a more negative picture of Iran."
CMG contacted the NYC Iranian Consul but were told no one was available to discuss the issue.
007 Fans Duped
Last week James Bond fans were tricked into believing that a trailer for an upcoming Bond movie, entitled 'Come and Dive', was the real thing. Unfortunately, the trailer (posted on YouTube) and its accompanying press release were bogus.
The fake video quickly went viral in the blogosphere before YouTube realized and took it down. The phony press release (pretending to be from Sony Pictures) had gone out to a number of media outlets, including the LA Times. It stated, "In 'Come and Dive', Bond will be swept away by a dangerous love story. As MI-6 rises from its ashes, 007 must protect a mysterious stranger and unveil long forgotten secrets. Spotted by both The Times and Total Film's blogs, the Times reported, "It's easy to understand how it could be real - at least for a second or so."
The real 24th installment of the Bond franchise is slated to start filming in October - with a release date of November 2015. The film has yet to be titled. Along with Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes will be returning, and replace Judi Dench as Bond's boss and head of MI-6.
