Ok I dont know if it is just Oklahoma or something but ever since I moved here every single time I have seen a movie in the theater there have been people or a bunch of people that are just ruining the movie. One thing that really annoys me is when people are texting and their phone lights up cause it pulls your focus to them and they dont try to be polite and hide the light I have seen many people actually holding their phone up cause they are leaning back. oh and talking. One time I went to see a movie and their were only like 10 of us in the theator and this teen next to me is taking calls throughout the movie. and he is talking as loud as if he were in a crowded room. I finnaly yelled at him to shut up during a really quiet part of the movie and he looks at me like 'do you mind i am on the phone'.

The worst was when I went down to OKC and saw the unborn. there were like 30 kids 12 to 15 in the front section and they were just screaming every time something scary happened. but they were not doing it cause they were scared they were doing it cause they were just having fun screaming. then during the really scary part they were just screaming over and over again. It made it not scary at all for me. Apparently like 4 people went out and got managers and then 3 ushers came in and stood around them. And guess what the next scary part not a single scream.

So is it just that kids these days dont have any mannors, that makes me feel old, but when I was in highschool this never happened. then I was thinking maybe its cause I would always see movies in suburbia and now i am seeing them in big and small cities.

It's really not just kids. I've seen countless obnoxious adults in the cinema.

I have seen a few but the majority have been high school age kids but this is just what I have seen.

I agree though, some kids can be f***ing irritating in the cinema but don't tar everyone with the same brush. I get equally annoyed at people my own age who do that s*** in the cinemas.

I once threatened to throw a bunch of kids out myself if they didn't shut up. They shut up.

Being a big guy with the scary shaved head and beard look does help sometimes.

Good job they didn't know I'm a pussy cat really, and I feel guilty when I swat flies

I've noticed the majority of texting comes from teenagers, the chattiness comes from teenagers, but the answering of calls and holding actual conversations on the phone come from adults.

If I go see a movie, it's always in The Villages. Never have to deal with that. Old people stay quiet.

Around here, they frequently patrol the theater during the show. Anyone using a cell phone or otherwise being a nuisance is escorted out.

As a result, the theaters are generally very quiet and dark. It's awesome.

Surprisingly, the people at the movies when I go are pretty decent. There's always at least one guy on the phone texting or something, but the person never makes much noise.

I guess I'm just lucky.

One thing about my theatre, is that the seats are more or less level with each other, with a slight angle to it, and it seems that all the tall people tend not to sit right at the back, frustratingly annoying

They really need to do that here.
