Do you know what amazes me at the cinema?

What bothers you at the Cinema?

  1. People talking on their cellphones and I get in trouble for sticking partially eaten Twizzlers in their ears or nose. Target depends on if I’m in front or behind them. People bringing their infant or toddler to a Rated-R movie. Cold popcorn with enough salt to eradicate slugs from the planet. That couple in the back having sex and getting mad when you give them a score.


  2. Don’t forget the person behind you kicking your seat throughout the entire movie. I actually had someone put their feet next to my head in the crack between my seat and the one next to mine… I was livid that day.


  3. This is great – I was going to do a similar post. Me and The Bloke go to the cinema almost weekly, and there’s always someone that irritates me – screaming kids, kicking my seat, eating with open mouths, talking… People are so inconsiderate…


  4. I can’t get past Charles’s comment about people having sex in a movie theater. A drive-in theater, sure (been there, done that), but a regular open theater?! Somehow I think that’s worse than finding gum on the arm rest.
    I have the usual (less exotic) gripes about audiences in movie theaters: people talking, cell phone usage, kids screaming, popcorn farting (the smell of buttered popcorn nauseates me … ever since I saw The Blair Witch Project and had to race to the ladies room and hurl, I can barely tolerate the smell). For these reasons we try to go at off-times, like when there’s a football game in town. But generally, we’re going to movies less and less often as the years go by. It used to be a great way to get away from the summer heat, but I don’t think there’s many movies any more that I wouldn’t just be happy to stream on my TV. Perhaps the greatest annoyance of all is just how goddamn expensive movie tickets are, even at matinees and with the senior discount 😉
