    Okay, so this wasn't at the movie THEATER,

    but it's funny nonetheless. My mom invited my talkative grandmother over to see a movie (After Earth) with us. She kept talking during the movie, and in the end scene, she would not stop asking questions. "What's the ursa?" "Will the beacon help him defeat that monster?" "What...

    Am Not Afraid to Yell At Movie Talkers

    I understand leaving your cell phone on durring a movie.  I usually put my cell phone on vibrate, so if someone important calls, I can run out to the hall real quick and take it.  But when someone leaves their ringer on and answers it in the theater that is...

    It's annoying when people do that. They should atleast talk on the cell phone out side of the movie theater. Someeone did that when i was at a movie once, they were sitting right behind me and they were talking really loud. It's like they were trying to be annoying!

    Grrrrr I Say!

    Loath it. If you want to text or talk on your phone, don't go to a movie, or why not download it at home and only bother yourself?!? Why pay $12+ to talk your way through the movie?? You're already paying to talk to whomever is on the phone, but you are going to pay for the movie...

    Self Importance

    I haven't had the movie experience.  However, can someone explain to me just why they have to answer the phone whenever it rings?  I find it rude when people break off a conversation to answer the phone.  Particularly annoying is the chinese take away - they stop...

    Othellos Love Cell Phones

    I dont understand the constant need to chatter on a cell phone. I find that annoying. I also think cells have become the gadget of choice of many jealous lovers who feel they are entitled to know your every move. I use my cell for emergencies. If I am away from home I let my...

    Lack Of Manners

    I don't understand why people feel the need to talk on the phone during a movie. Is it that hard to shut off your phone for just a short time of at least two hours. Unless your having a near death experience or expecting a baby or have something that serious you shouldn't be on...

    Even Texting In the Movies Makes Me Crazy

    or crazier!  I have even requested and received the money I paid for tickets.  True, I sound like an old grump but the price of tickets and treats is prohibitive. I do not need a running narrative just because a couple nearby forgot or refuse to wear their hearing aids...

    Last time I went to the movies the lady in

    front of me was on Facebook. When I politely asked her if she could put her phone away because it was very distracting, she mumbled, "ain't no white ***** gonna tell me what to do", and kept it out, while laughing with her friend about it. I really don't care to go to the movies...

    I hate when people talk during movies

    or shows, period. If you aren't that much into what you are watching, at least have enough respect for those who want to know what's going on.
