Noun[edit]

cinemuck (uncountable)

    • 2003, "Where have all the Fort Wayne movie theaters gone?", Fort Wayne News Sentinel, 10 March 2003:
      It only makes me wonder if there's any market at all for people who require only a clean theater - not too much cinemuck on the floors - that's not too far from home and doesn't make you wait in the cold too long to buy a ticket.
  2. (informal, pejorative) Cinematic material considered to be of low quality.
    • 2001, Denise A. Raymon, "An inch too far to go see '3,000 Miles to Graceland'", Press Republican, 1 March 2001:
      Crawling on your knees to the real Graceland over shards of broken glass would be less painful than sitting through this cinemuck.
