RABIS CRITICISES ITS MEMBERS
The working viewer, as he progresses, becomes more and more demanding. He is no longer satisfied by primitive forms. He has grown up and now feels some dissatisfaction, particularly in Cinema. We, members of RABIS, should pull ourselves up to the level of the viewer. It is necessary to intensify and more importantly improve qualitatively towards the services provided to the organised trade union viewer…
Page 5 – almost as a direct example of ‘improved quality towards the organised trade union viewer.’ RABIS is indignant that a large number of tickets for certain theatre shows in Moscow are being bought by ‘organisations’ and then resold for a large profit, thus denying the intended ‘consumer’, the ‘working viewer’, the opportunity to see the show.
It may well be that many of the ‘working viewers’ were in fact selling their tickets for a profit.
