MOVIE THEATER PET PEEVES

1) TV commercials in a movie theater. At least when you take my time for commercials on TV, I’m getting a “free” TV show.

2) People who answer their cell phone while watching a movie. If the call is THAT important, perhaps you shouldn’t even be watching a movie.

3) $10 for a popcorn and coke?!?!? I wish Costco would open a concession stand.

4) People who sit directly in front of you or behind you in an empty theater. I’d like to put my feet up, but I don’t want you to.

5) Parents who take young children to rated R movies. The subtleties of “Saw” or “Hostel” might be better appreciated when they’re 17.

6) Parents who take crying babies. It’s called a babysitter.

7) People who talk during the movie like they’re at home. Would you mind expressing your views on who the killer is, after the movie is over?

8 ) Poor projection/sound quality.

9) People who complain.

10) Irony.

        I especially agree with #s 2,5,6,7,8,9!
        Seriously….if moviegoers could just have one and half-two and half hours of respect in a movie theater!!!!

        I would have LOVED Dolphin Tale, only if the couple right next us 9me and my parents) didn’t bring their annoying, squirmy one-two year old child!!! THAT WAS AN ANNOYANCE!!!!!
        I agree Mark…in our world that we live in today, we have a person called… ummm..a.. BABYSITTER! Don’t bring your young children ages 5 and under to the movies…unless your child is 6 and up…..that’s fine….please no child under 5 and under….they’ll get winey, and squirmy…SO ANNOYING!!!!!!!

        TURN YOUR PHONE TO “NO SOUND!!!!!!!!!!!!!”…SO NO ONE CAN HEAR IT DURING THE MOVIE….UNLESS YOUR CALL OR TEXT IS URGENT OR IMPORTANT….THE MESSAGE CAN WAIT FOR AN HOUR AND A HALF-TWO AND A HALF HOURS.!!!!!!!!!!!
        WATCH THE MOVIE AND SHUT UP!!!!!!!!! WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY IS NOT IMPORTANT…WATCH THE DANG MOVIE….AND WAIT AFTER THE MOVIE TO SAY WHAT YOU NEED TO SAY!!!!!! DON’T DISRUPT AND ANNOY MOVIEGOERS/AUDIENCES WITH YOUR STUPID, SELFISH TALKING/AND YOUR ANNOYING/LOUD PHONE ALERTS!!!!!! SHUT YOUR PHONE OFF AND DON’T TALK….AND WATCH THE MOVIE!!!!!!

        IF A MOVIE IS RATED R..AND NOT APPROPRIATE…THEN DON’T TAKE YOUR CHILD TO WHO IS 12 AND UNDER A RATED R MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IF YOU ALLOW YOUR 13-16 YEAR OLD CHILD TO SEE AN R-RATED MOVIE…THEN THAT’S OKAY!!!!! NO CHILD WHO IS 12 AND UNDER SHOULD WATCH AN R-RATED FILM!!!!!
        Thank You…enjoy your movie…and have a good (rest) of your day!!!!!
        Thank You very much!!!!!!

    I agree especially with # 3

  3. Being that I’m not 17 yet i just have to disagree with that one. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE rated R movies. I’d be so upset if I couldn’t see them. But I get what you’re saying :D

  4. I agree with numbers 3, 4, 7, and 9. I haven’t really come in contact with numbers 2, 5, 6, or 8. As for number 1, there are only certain theaters when I see TV commercials in the theater. I HATE the thing at some theaters where if you come early, they do some dumb “FirstLook” thing or whatever. In number 10, I’m confused as to what you mean by “irony”. I know very well what irony is, and I love it in certain situations, but I just don’t understand how it can fall under the category of cinemas. I laughed out loud at a lot of these. :)
