Can one go to the movies on Shabbat if they order and print the tickets ahead of time?

Regardless of whether one should be studying Torah and praying for sake of piety, would one be defying any miztvah?

    You need to specify that it is inside an eruv to allow the tickets to be carried (though the ticket might be muktzah). Jun 7 '17 at 12:05

    @sabbahillel I don't see how the ticket could be muktzeh if going to the movies is permitted.

    @Daniel It might be muktzah because it is solely used for an improper activity Jun 7 '17 at 14:21

    Tearing for destruction is not a melachah. It is a Rabbinical restriction though. So to say that the employee ripping it is in any way connected to you (which it seems he is doing because the boss made that policy not the movie goer) doesn't sound like a problem. Jun 7 '17 at 17:45
