  1. A great revenge against those various forms of disruptions is to have a friend on the inside. Many moons ago I worked at a cinema for a few years. A personal favorite was when we had a few very disruptive children causing problems and who were warned more than once about it. A few of decided a grand plan so we actually stopped the film, brought the theater lights up and walked in to give them the boot. They were so awful that everyone else there actually applauded their departure.

  2. I absolutely despise when people can not stop talking, or giggling nervously in a horror movie. If you can’t handle the suspense get out, you’re ruining the atmosphere of the movie.

  3. These are the the exact reasons that I see most films on Sky, rather than going to the pictures. I am not a tolerant person at the best of times, but the cinema does tend to bring out these apaulling behaviours in people. Great post.

  4. That’s exactly how I am. I’ll never forget this one guy who was a few rows ahead of me who jingled his keys through the whole move in a crowded theater, and no one had the courage to tell him FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, STOP!

    I actually did manage to shush a couple of kids awhile back, but only because I their parents sat far enough down that I didn’t think they would hear me. Parents are crazy.

  5. Haha! That’s a good one. Especially the ‘noisyest foods known to man’ part. I even find myself making too much noise while eating popcorn, so I try chewing slower, which not only doesn’t work, but actually makes MORE noise for a longer duration.
    But wait…what’s up with… What!?.. …so, Darth Vador is actually Luke Skywalker’s FATHER?!?! Dang it! I was just about to get to that scene!

  6. I’m fortunate this doesn’t happen often, but when it does…

    Had three teenagers sat behind me when I saw The Wolverine. They questioned the Yakuza assassin’s ability to free run over building tops as ‘unrealistic’ in a film about mutants.

    Better yet was the ‘That’s a big bomb’ comment at the nuke going off.

    • That’s another one of my pet hates when it comes to cinema noise – people’s strange desire to loudly proclaim things that are profoundly obvious to every single person watching the film, like “that’s a big bomb”.
