Do you want to know what my biggest pet peeve in the world is? Bigger than bad drivers, even?
Well, I’ll tell you…loud people in the movie theater.
Drives me INSANE. That’s why I try to go to movies during the week, during the day – so hopefully I’m one of the only ones, if not the only one, in the theater.
These folks are definitely on my side, and they shared some incredibly annoying theater experiences for all of us to read.
1. I would’ve screamed at her.
I went to see The Farewell, which is about 90% subtitled. A woman read every. single. subtitle. out loud.

2. Please don’t touch.
A few years ago when my hair was longer (semi-large fro) the person seated behind me kept playing with my hair. I was so freaked out, didn’t know what to do. So I let be. Got chills every time I felt my hair being touched. Mind you the movie was like 2 hrs ?

3. No face, no case.
Walked into a horror movie and it was pitch black + full of people. my man fell down the stairs trying to find a seat. Everyone laughed but no face no case ??♀️

4. Jeez, dad…
I was watching a movie with my auntie, we are nice civilians so we turned our phones off. My dad drove around, saw my aunts car, called us to see when we would get home, didn't answer so he thought we were kidnapped, entered the cinema like he was going nuts until he found us

5. Mr. Moneybags.
Went on a date to some 3D movie and the dude didn’t get the glasses…he insisted we could still see without problems and my eyes teared up right away…he then bought ONE pair for us to SHARE. ??♀️??♀️??♀️

6. Not a good time.
One time Robin and I went to see a scary movie and walks in right as it started. Had to sit in the front row in between a bunch of teenagers. The kids on my side were texting the entire time and the kids on his side wouldn’t stop talking
Then some bitch farted outta nowhere

When I was a kid my dad took me to see finding Nemo. We get in the theater and I go to sit in my seat but the bottom was still flipped up. I sat down then the bottom flipped down and I broke my nose when I hit my face on the seat in front of me.

9. Are you still together?
my date passed out from all the drugs and alcohol he consumed I was scared so I asked for help and while I was trying to hide the evidence I found his gun 🙂 after this he threw a fit bc I didn’t want to let him drive me home?

10. A good children’s film.
A couple chose to bring their toddler into my showing of It: Chapter Two. When the toddler started crying the parents did nothing about it. Luckily theater management was able to intervene before I stormed out.

12. Quite an adventure.
I ate a pot brownie with my friends. My seat fell off and I slid down the theatre stairs like a saucer sled. I carried the seat into the lobby and handed it to the ticket taker. “My set fell off,” I said while as tears streamed down my face.

13. Thanks for the memories.
Went to see toy story 4 and the small child next to me threw up all over the chair. He sat in it for half an hour before telling his parents.

14. Ugh. Take it outside.
Some guy decided to give his girlfriend a history lesson during half of Dunkirk. I called him Dumbkirk.

15. It sounds glorious.
The only “weird” film experience I had was during my second time watching The Force Awakens
Some memelord ran in and screamed “HAN SOLO DIES”, then two guys dressed in stormtrooper costumes went down to where he was and proceeded to beat the crap out of him
It was glorious
