Recently I'd gone to see the Hunger Games movie with a group of friends, being a huge fan of the books I was typically excited. Once the movie had started however we came to discover that we had the unfortunate opportunity of sitting directly in front of a group of preteen girls. They talked throughout the movie, making typical snide remarks and giggling uncontrolably. My friends and I could feel our frustration growing and despite our numerous attempts to shush them nothing worked. Finally after one of the girls loudly announced that if she were in a Hunger Game she would "Pretend to be dead until they took her out of the arena" my friend turned around and growled, "you won't have to pretend if you keep talking". And not a peep was uttered for the rest of the film.
TLDR: Don't pay 20 bucks for a dark room to talk in.
I like to go to the really cheap, ghetto-ass movie theatres on the off-chance that there will be a group of black women there. They say the most amazing things.
Bonus points if it's a Tyler Perry movie!
Three words: Hunger Games premiere.
Correction: Harry potter premier. Kids dueling in the theater. Snack cart yelling "anything from the trolley?". A guy came dressed as hagrid. He stuffed pillows in his shirt.
When we went to see The Hunger Games, a preview for Twilight Breaking Dawn part 2 came on, and the audience actually started laughing. It pretty much made my life.
I think that's why midnight premieres are so awesome. I mean, I can live with not seeing movies until morning, but going to them upon their first opening along with the excited and devoted fans is an amazing feeling.
One person shouted "DON'T DO IT!"
My top three annoying experiences:
When I saw Super eight the audience laughed at EVERYTHING. Even when a guy threw up. Also there was a couple sitting directly behind us with the girl sitting on the guys lap and kept making comments.
When I saw the Spongebob movie the people near us kept whispering like "This is the part where___ happens."
And finally at my highschool theater competition these people kept talking through this play, and then when I finally told them to be quiet they were just obnoxiously shushing me back and then claimed I was adding to the noise.
