I don’t go to the movies often. I’m a graduate student that’s trying to save my money as much as possible. But when I do, it drives me crazy to be in a theatre with inconsiderate people. They could be doing any number of things that are insensitive: talking on their cell phone, texting, whispering or talking to one another, laughing to be obnoxious, shouting out at the movie, wrestling around with their buddies, walking in and out of the theatre constantly, tossing food around, constantly wiggling in their seat, bringing children that are too young to a movie that makes them cry. Or like my friend who went to the movies last night, they could be instrumentally belching for their own amusement.
Seems to me that it is inconsiderate to behave in a way that is distracting to a group of people who paid money to do something. It is my hopes that people will remember to be more courteous and considerate in these situations so everyone can enjoy the thing they came to see.
And on an aside, comments and your own personal stories are totally welcome! I would love for this blog to become a forum for dialogue!
