Angry Very sick of rude people at the movies *rant*

I went to the movies today and three ladies walked in 3 minutes into the movie yapping their mouths off. They took 5 minutes to find seats all the while still flapping their gums. I got fed up so I said "Would you please be quiet so everyone else can enjoy the film?" So they get in my face and one of them says "you don't have to be rude and say it like that" I said it as nice as I possibly could without going off and cracking skulls. So they keep on at and say to me "we paid the same as you." It was like unreal. Why go to the movies if you want to talk? Go to a diner or coffee shop. I just don't understand where people get off. It's just not worth going anymore. I think besides a few must see films, I'm done going to the cinema. So
Sorry for the rant but I'm sure many of you can understand the frustration.

so you'd beat up 3 ladies for being loud in the theater? a little intense dont you think?

Underworld this has been happenign for years, it just the way it is. it has become worse since cellphones came out, but it is what it is.. what i do is wait a week or so to check out a movie so it cools down a bit, and i very rarely go to the movies on weekends.. for starters im usually out doing other things, and i tend to not like the giant crowds at the theater

Not for being loud but for getting in my face.

Lately, I've only been going to the matinee showing at 10am on Sunday mornings with my brother. It's pretty awesome especially waiting until the second or third week of release and the theater is practically empty.

Mission: Impossible 3 was like maybe 10 people and all adults who went alone. Sitting far apart from each other and no talking. Safe House last weekend had maybe 30 people in there. Even a few kids but super quiet. Just some laughs here and there but totally acceptable.

I know the idea is that you shouldn't have to adjust your schedule and there shouldn't be people acting like idiots in theaters but I gladly wake up early on Sunday just to avoid people. Also, since tickets are so cheap ($6 each, $12 for me and my bro) I even buy popcorn and smuggle my own sodas in. Less than $18 bucks for a fun time.

I take the same approach as well. I hate crowds to begin with; matinees offer (slightly) better pricing and my pick of seats. There's still rude people to contend with occasionally, but at least I can distance myself from them in a relatively empty theatre.

YES! I do this same thing every Sunday morning. Granted, you have to get up earlier but it's worth it. Hardly any people, cheap tickets (my AMC has early bird before noon weekend prices of only $4), and just no hassles whatsoever. I've even noticed that the people that show up for these showings are very well behaved.

I see your point man. People in general have become more rude and selfish. I can usually ask people to be quiet and they are embarrassed to the point of closing their yappers the entire rest of the film. Oh and I would never get into a physical confrontation over a movie unless I was threatened physically. It's just not worth it.

Wow...sorry to hear that. You can always go out and tell the attendants. If they don't do anything about it, usually complaining to them about it afterwards will result in a free ticket or your money back.

Agreed. No matter how ugly people get, it's not worth getting into a physical fight.

Some years ago I was in a theatre, and a cell phone started ringing loudly. It just rang and rang and rang. I finally yelled out, "shut the damned phone off already!". It's owner got really pissed and stood up and said, "WHO SAID THAT...WHO SAID THAT....I'LL KICK YOUR FKING ASS, blah blah blah". Luckily, theatre security came in and escorted her out.

Around the same time in a different theatre, some idiot came in wearing a hat that was about two feet tall and he refused to take it off. I screamed at him too. He started to act out, but then he took it off.

But nothing pisses me off more than the people who think because they paid admission, they have the right to behave in any way they see fit.

I actually find that the people who yap the most during movies are elderly people - people in their late 70s or 80s. It's especially bad when they also have a hearing problem, because they're screaming so they can hear themselves. I try not to get too angry at them, but I will give them a "shhh!" If they say something nasty, I'll get nasty and tell them to go home if they can't shut up. If they argue, I'll say, "pretend like you know how to behave in a movie theatre."

So I avoid theatres when teens tend to be there and I avoid theatres daytimes during the week when elderly people tend to be there. I usually go into Manhattan to see movies where the audiences are just a bit more sophisticated and usually (but not always) behave well.

The biggest problem these days are people who can't stop texting and checking email during the movie. When will people realize they have a real problem when they can't put their phone down for two hours.

I don't know whether they still do it, but there's a movie theatre in the basement of Union Station in Washington, D.C. in the food court. In that theatre, if you're caught talking, there are no warnings -- you're asked to leave. I don't know that theatres need to be that strict, but if theatres started throwing out people who used their cell phones during the movie, far fewer people would even try. While in most locales, it's illegal to block cell phone signals, it's totally legal if the cell phones just happen to be blocked due to the construction of the theatre not being able to absorb the signals. I wish theatres would "renovate" so that the screens would no longer receive reception. That would solve a lot of the problems.

And then there are the people who bring babies or young kids into R-rated films. IMO, if a film is rated R, no one under 12 or 13 should be there whether they're with a guardian or not. Aside from the negative effects on the kid, the kids frequently freak out either because they're scared or because they're bored. The MPAA does sometimes mis-rate films, but I still think this should be the policy.
loose="not tight", lose="can't find it, doesn't have anymore" or the opposite of "win".
their="belongs to", there="place", they're="they are", there's = "there is"
it's="it is", for everything else use "its"
then="after", than="compared with"
"a lot" not "alot"

There was a time when it didn't happen. When I was a kid back in the '70s ushers would stay in the theater, and if someone talked they would shine a light in their face and ask them to be quiet. It worked, too. We need to bring that back.

I agreed with you a couple of pages back. The ushers need to be bought back.

All theater seats should be outfitted with trapdoor chutes. A judge will sit in each theater, and if a patron is talking, texting, being obnoxious, etc. The judge presses a switch, the person's seat lifts and then drops them down a chute into the basement of the theater where there are immediate stairs leading to an exit that empties into the parking lot. A sign will be posted over said exit that reads,"Be Polite or Be Gone!"
