10 Things... You Should Never Do In The Cinema

Share This… Not Your Oats & More



For some, heading to the cinema for a night out can be one of the highlights of the week. For others, it is not such a sacred event. There are certain things that should just not happen in the cinema. Here are ten of them.

1. Having the chats.

So you haven't seen that friend in quite a while... That's wonderful! Go for a coffee and have the chats! Do not sit in the middle of the cinema and start discussing your life story.

2. Taking out your phone in the screen.

Yes, we even mean if your phone is on silent. The light display on your phone can rival anything that's happening on the big screen. It's completely distracting to everyone arond you. Trust us, you have years to update your facebook. Literally years.

3. ANSWERING your phone in the screen.


However bad texting or updating your phone in a screen is, never, we repeat never answer your phone while in the cinema. "Oh HEY, I'm just in the cinema..." Yes, the dark, quiet cinema. Where no one else is talking. Ever.

4. Kicking of seats...

There you are, completely engrossed in Godzilla and these vibrations start to occur. No, it's not the thumping of the beast on the screen, it's somebody playing a soccer match with the back of your seat.

5. Eating really, REALLY loud food.


Yes, we know the cinema is the kind of establishment where it is totally acceptable to eat popcorn and the like but in the quieter scenes, maybe try to just wait until something loud happens. "You make me want to be a better man..." but all you can hear is crunch, crunch, crunch.

6. Having the shift. 

So you've been on a couple of dates and you're at that stage where you are just all over each other. Then you decide to go see the latest blockbuster on a Saturday night but that's a packed cinema. A packed cinema that is watching and hearing everything you say or do...


7. Being late.

When the film says it's starting at 9.10pm, it's not a guideline. That'st the time. Now, you can account for about ten minutes of trailers but why bother going to see a film if you've missed the first ten minutes? Surely you won't have a clue what's going on...

8. Rustling.

You don't need whatever it is that is in your bag, unless it's absolutely crucial to your existence.


9. Leaving before the end.

We can kind of understand someone leaving half way through the film if it's not their cup of tea but departing before the final scene? Why would you endure an entire film to do that?

10. Singing.

We can understand sing-alongs, we can completely get that children want to join in but if it's neither of the above, then no. We love a good sing-song as much as the next person but not in the confines of the cinema.
