You've just reminded me of another one.

Just as the film is about to start, on the cinema's policy logo, people jump up to go to the toilet, treading all over people as they go. They leap up like they've just remembered they'd left a cigarette lit somewhere.

I always go during the day when kids are at school and avoid the cinemas like the plague when they're on holiday, unless the films an 18.

Probably for the best. Then you can have a good blow out while they're out of the house at school.

I'm kind of the same way.  I'll go to a matinee on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon, rather than having to deal with "opening night idiots" as I like to call them.  Most moviegoers where I live are teenagers who have a tendency to forget that there are other people in the same room as them. LOL
The "older" crowd tends to go to the matinees now, and on top of that...it's cheaper!  LOL

Another thing.  I wish the box office and snack bar would have one line! I don't like it when its seperate windows.  Also I wish people would have there method of payment ready when it comes time to pay.

So I went to see Final Destination 3 last night, and I was joined by not one, not two, not even three, but FIVE large families with CHILDREN ranging from probably 6-14. The kids were pretty well behaived actually, but who the f**k thinks it's OK to bring tiny children to an are rated horror flick. At one point one of the smaller kids started crying in fear and his or her parents told them to be quite, rather than leaving the F**KING THEATER. Oh, and, not kidding, one family was drinking cheap champagne that they had snuck in, the brown bagged bottle was sitting on the floor next to them when I left.

That's the biggest difference between our 2 rating systems. The UK's 18 doesn't let people under that age (technically) into the show even if accompanied by an adult. I wouldn't be surprised if the BBFC brought this in line with the are rating though as they did by modifying the 12 Cert to a 12A.

One of the theaters here is like that and I really hate it.  It takes way too long for me because I never by concessions.

Gabe,

One of my worst experiences ever was during Pitch Black.  I was the only person in the theater until after the movie started.  Then, a young couple walked in with a toddler.  They let the toddler run through the aisle the entire movie (or at least until he wore himself out.)  That kid probably had nightmares for years.  I really felt like calling child services.  If you can't get a baby sitter, don't go to the movies and especially don't go to graphic R-rated horror movies at 10 pm!

I can't stand it when people behind me constantly kick the back of my seat during a movie. I once got up and told some little sh*t that I'd bust his leg if he kicked it again. Thankfully he stopped and I didn't have to toss him down the stairs... I haven't had a cell phone experience yet, but as I type this I bet the next time I go I will.

When I went to see Narnia there was a baby there. I only heard a whimper once or twice so thankfully I had no complaints.

The worst experience I ever had at the movies was when I took in a screening of Ace Ventura 2. I was about 15 and with some friends, when these 2 11 year old girls kept flirting with us and wouldnt leave us alone. At 15 of course this is annoying to anyone. They went to the same showing as us, sat by us, kept calling us cute and making cooing noises at us, finally throwing popcorn to get our attention. It was a nightmare.

Ironically I'm hoping I see them again the next time I'm at the movies...hehehe

You wouldn't class Ace Ventura 2 as the worst movie experience also?

Always remember, dreams are free! Wink

I remember a couple taking their 5 year-old (I think he was that old). He was very well behaved but I could see them a number of times having to explain bits of the movie...

I had a cell phone experience once where their phone rang, they answer it, actually talk for 20 seconds or so (I think they explained what movie they were at) and then hung up... Not 15 minutes later, the phone RANG AGAIN! Now, it's annoying the first time but you are beyond an idiot if you don't turn it off or put it on vibrate. I think she finally turned it off thankfully.
