generally, i get pissed if anyone does anything else than sit their asses down and shut the fuck up in a theater, including my friends, hell they are probably the offenders in most of the posts in this thread.

Whatever emergency it is, is probably going to force you to leave the cinema anyway.DigitalAtlas said:No, and complaining about it just means you aren't thinking and might be getting a tad caught up in your own experience. What if someone went to see a movie who suddenly had to help a friend in need via txt? Should they just ignore them so you don't have to deal with an occasional flicker?
Tough shit. People shouldn't try and ruin my experience just because they aren't enjoying the movie. Also, most cinemas I've been to give you a full refund within the first 30 minutes of the movie. If you haven't decided if you're interested by that point, you're pretty slow.DigitalAtlas said:What if they were uninterested in the movie but didn't want to leave due to friends, ride wasn't there yet, or just simply didn't want to waste the money by leaving?
Really?! We're fortunate to have movies so that means you can be rude and inconsiderate? We're fortunate to have food, so I guess you won't mind if someone spits in your next time.DigitalAtlas said:You want a better experience? Politely ask the person to stop txting, or get satisfied we even have the luxury at all. I don't see how a little back light bothers you anyway.
I want to come over. People seem to not understand that when I'm trying to watch a show or read a fucking book I'm busy and don't want to hear them talk.HouseOfSyn said:I'd be shocked if anyone thought this was ok. I remember a few years back a friend of a friend answered his phone half way through a film - I was utterly shocked someone could be so rude. Also, if you're watching a film at my home, there must be no talking and phones must be off ... I don't entertain much.
That happened to me, yeah. I was watching Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and during an important moment: (don't click if you haven't seen it)chadachada123 said:Clapping is always annoying, but I can think of a couple of instances where audience interaction could be beneficial. I can't remember the movie, but there was a crowded theater I was in where, at some pivotal moment, someone in the audience said something loudly, and most of the theater started laughing uproariously. It was awesome.
Most of the time, though, I'd agree.
