In Germany I witnessed 30+ minutes of advertisements.

Yeah, we first get commercial adverts, kinda like in TV but usually more elaborate. Then movie trailers. When I still went into the cinema it was common for the movie to "start" at 2000 and then actually start at 2030 to 2045. Which is just one reason why I do not feel bad about pirating movies.
