6 Things That Absolutely Suck at the Movie Theater


If I’m now paying 12 bucks just to go see a movie and well over 20 bucks for the whole experience then I’d like to think I can expect good things at a movie theater.  Sure there’s no way to tell if the movie will be good or not until it’s been viewed, however there are other things clearly in our control.

It’s not exactly difficult to behave yourself at a movie theater is it?  Apparently it is.  And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.  There are a whole host of things that could go wrong while at the theater.

Here are six that really piss me off

The Cell Phone That Goes Off

Movie Theater

Honestly, with all the crap we see during the previews that mention how NOT to have your cell phone on during the movie?  How in the world is this still going on in theaters?  Not only that, whenever the damn thing rings at least three times it’s usually cause for murder.  No question.  Giant sign:  TURN CELL PHONES OFF.  Cell phone still rings.  How?  How?

The Tall Person

Movie Theater

This is just the luck of the draw I guess.  I’m 6’0 tall so I doubt that I’ve caused trouble for those behind me.  And I have to say theaters have made advancements in seating.  However, if someone is 6’5 or taller you are absolutely screwed.  And if you’re in a crowded theater, God help you.  Ever watch an entire movie with your head tilted?  Man that blows.

The Talker or Laugher

Movie Theater

I didn’t realize how many people thought that a movie theater was their own personal living room.  Not only that, sometimes you get the people that actually speak just to piss other people off.  The worst thing is when you get a group of people that are either drunk or stoned.

Having to go to the bathroom

Movie Theater

This sucks.  Period.  It just sucks.   It’s happened to me once or twice where I just couldn’t hold it in.  God forbid you have to take a dump.  Thank God that’s never happened to me before.

The No Seat Situation

Movie Theater

You know what that means.  It means you’re sitting in the front which is about the worst possible thing that could happen to you at the theater other than being vomited on, the theater collapsing on your head, or having exploding diarrhea.

The Seat Saving Debacle

Movie Theater

Well there are two things here.  One.  You either have to save a seat and have to deal with people getting annoyed at you or two.  You’re the one trying to get a seat and have to ask people to move.  If it weren’t for people simply being assholes, none of this would even be an issue.

We’ll see you….AT the movies.
