Worst Things About Going to the Movies

So your gonna see a movie you have been dying to see, and then it’s ruined by something. I always hate it when I have a terrible movie theater experience. Here are the most annoying things about going to the movies.

The Top Ten Worst Things About Going to the Movies

1 Someone talks during the movie

I was in 6th grade and I went to the cinema with my friend and no parents. We kept talking before and during the movie. People kept sushing us and I said to my friend "it surely can't be that annoying! " the very next time I was in the cinema these two people wouldn't shut up and it was really annoying! I'm never talking in a cinema again!

If you have to talk, do it in the lobby. Also you don't have to talk and share your opinion on every little thing. Shut up or leave.

Not too bothered by this one, as long as they keep it to a whisper

Usually kids do it. Last time this scenario appeared with me, there was a bunch of little girls just talking about their iPhones and talentless modern pop stars.

2 The people on their phones

I can understand phones going off by accident, but for other people, they literally answer the phone and talk on it while people are watching the movie. Oh people also text, take pictures with their flash on, and go on their social media. Just turn off your phone or put it on silent.

People's phones ring and everyone is upset that they're trying to watch the movie. It would actually be practical and if callers using their phones to turn off their phones and just watch the movie. That's all. Just turn it off.

You can detach from that specific screen for a while believe it or not. Even if it is to look at an even larger, louder one.

I get a call happens on accident or something pops up but seriously put the phone down and watch the movie you paid to see

3 Kids misbehaving

Once there was a birthday party at the movies sitting behind me and one of the kids almost poured his soda on me :/

This can be a problem when going out to the movies. Probably because their parents forced their kids to go so that may be one reason why.

I kinda feel lucky I've never experienced this apart from #2

Here comes the belt...

4 Someone kicks your seat

You say, no I paid for aticket, I got here first, to bad. I'm supposed to give you my seat cause your family couldn't get here early enoough to get a good seat, really?

This is really annoying

It’s really disrespectful, and annoying. Most of these people are kids.

I know their mostly kids but still it’s quite irritating

5 Overpriced merchandise

It took $40 for my friends and I to get 1 large popcorn, medium drinks, and two candies. How much did it cost to produce? Nowhere near that much. Plus the actual movie stuff is even more expensive

Should be much higher, especially since they discourage you from bringing in food, but it is fun sneaking snacks into the theater

Would you rather pay $7 for M&M’s or would you rather buy $1 M&M’s from the Dollar Tree, and sneak them in the movie theater.

6 Someone snores during the movie

My grandma took my sister and I to a movie once and she fell asleep right at the beginning and snored really loud

If your watching a silent movie it can get really annoying, and any type of movie. Oh and people love to poor popcorn on these type of people, I would be one of them.

Someone snores during the movie signifies that the individual is sleeping. He or she could be tired, plus the snoring will disrupt the movie going experience.

*cough* *cough* My mom

7 The narrators

God these people are terrible. They would repeat a quote over, and over, and over again. I got two words for these people.
Shut up.

8 The projector blowing out

The projected could blow out. Imagine people seeing the new Avengers movie. Oh man, so many angry people.

9 Someone blocks the view

This one is very annoying

10 Someone hogging seats

Literally I hate these kind of people.

The Contenders

11 Someone spoils the ending
12 A drunk person walks in during the movie

This scenario happened with me before. The drunk person kept cussing loudly and being racist.

These type of people would moan, and make loud noises. It’s really disruptive. Oh and the theater would smell of alcohol, yuck.

13 Someone laughing during an emotional or intense scene

Audience bathos

That's me

14 Babies

Parents who bring their babies to theatres are idiots they're obviously gonna cry and scream and its just plain rude to the audience who payed for the movie. If you can't hire a sitter you should've used a condom.

What do babies and watermelon have in common? They are both fun to hit with a giant hammer.

They're always really loud. And they don't even understand the movie

They need a spanking

15 Shushers
16 Tantrum thrower brats
17 Paying for overpriced food
18 Trying to find an empty seat but already been taken

Well that’s why some movie theaters assign people seats.

19 It just isn't worth it if it isn't an action movie or horror movie

Horror movies just because the added reactions of those around you to a scary moment.
Action movies because explosions just look awesome on a bigger screen.
Any other movie is just a rip-off to see in the theaters

What about Forrest Gump or Titanic? They are best-selling movies and don't belong to either of those genres.

I don’t like horror movies

20 People farting

Watched Ant Man and The Wasp day 1, early bird showing. Some old crap decides to let out 3 loud farts. I get it people can't help it, but can you do it outside, or do it quietly?

21 It costs money

If it was free then it would mean we would have to add the movie going experience to our taxes


I don't see why this is a problem, but I get the joke.

22 Sticky floors

You get your shoes sticky.

23 You have to sit in the front row

What’s wrong with the front row?

24 Getting poked, touched, or smacked by a kid

What's with all the autistic references?

Why AUTISTIC though?

25 Birthday parties
26 Assigned seats

What movie theater has this?

I think it is more of a newer thing due to most people buying tickets from a third party, it is a way to ensure the show doesn't sells out more tickets than there are seats

They have them at the movie theaters near me and everyone hates them. You have to pick them before the movie so if you get stuck by a birthday party or a crying baby, you can't move.

27 People with poor hygeine
28 Arrogant teenagers

What are you saying about me?

29 Street gangs in theaters
30 Someone throwing popcorn at you
31 Getting shushed for making reference jokes

A friend shushed me rudely while saw Shrek 2 when I jokingly said "Zordon" but in a lower quiet voice during the mirror guy scene. No one shushes me while I make a reference jokes! Those shushers are the ones that's needs to shut up!

32 Annoying kids running around in the theater
33 Kids' meltdowns
34 People smoking

Even though you aren't allowed to, people do anyway. It smells horrible, please do it outside. Once a lady smoked weed while sitting next to my friend and I (13 at the time). Can't people take a hint? Like the 5 billion signs that say "no smoking"?

35 Trailers for bad movies
36 You could be doing something better
37 Your friend finishes the popcorn
38 When you need to use the toilet

You just can't enjoy watching a Movie when you have the urge to pee.
