The luxury of going to the movie theaters still has its shine now as much as it did when we were kids. Remember going with your parents? They bought you the large popcorn, maybe some candies if you were good, and a large soda to wash it all down with. Then, you got to pick where exactly you’d want to enjoy the movie. There was an art to picking the best spot in the theater and you had it nailed down.

Imagine if you were excited to see a movie you’ve been waiting to see only to end up with a talking teenager in your row. Or a loudmouth sitting behind you commenting on every scene. Or some kid that won’t sit still and loves kicking the back of your chair. Why do these people even come out in public to the movies? Just to spite us movie lovers?

Whatever their reason, these awful people can be found in almost every other movie theater. DON’T be that person. For the rest of us, we can only imagine what we’d do to those people if we found them in the parking lot after the movie.

These 25 people completely ruined movie experiences for the rest of us:


One time I was watching a movie in Edinburgh and these two guys in the front were talking audibly to each other after the movie started. Annoying but im trying to ride it out. Then about fifteen minutes into the movie, they uncorked a bottle of wine and started drinking the wine out of wine glasses. Then they lit up a cigarette and passed it back and forth. Everyone in the theater was just like “Are we actually f*cking seeing this?”. An usher was called. They were asked to leave.


My friend and I saw Spiderman the other day, and right as the movie starts, some black guy stands up and says, “SH*T N*GGA I THOUGHT THIS WAS BATMAN!!!” and walked out.


I got to see an advance screening of John Carter. Little did I know that I would be sitting in the front row and it was in 3D. Then a family of about 6 come and sits on either side of my friend and I, 3 on one side 3 on the other. They then proceed to talk over us. We asked if they wanted to move, but the mom said they did not want to sit by their kid’s for the movie.. Once the movie starts up they start reaching at the screen because of the 3D like they have never seen it before. Then the lady to my left took her phone out about every 5 minutes. But the kicker was about halfway into the movie the mother busts out 2 full subway footlongs from her purse and asks me to pass them to her kids on the other side of me. I just pretended not to hear, so she got up and walked over to her kids and proceeded to stand there and talk to them while standing and the movie playing. At that point my friend said to the lady “can you please sit down and be quiet?” she looked at him and said “don’t tell me what to do!” Then we just decided to leave after that.


When I saw the second LOTR movie, a girl brought her boyfriend and he was NOT into it. A lot of eye-rolling and sighing. When the end started, he snapped and stood up with a hearty “OH F*CK THIS!” and left.
