Tell me about your worst theater experience

I took my dad to see Indiana Jones IV
>>
Saw Wall Street 2

It was so bad, I walked out and demanded my money back.

There were black people in the theater once.
They were loud and it was impossible to concentrate on the movie.
I wish there were no black people.

Worst theater experience was some asshole wouldn't shut the fuck up during the first half of American Hustle. Most awkward theater experience was seeing The Master with my mom, she wanted to see it and I had no idea there was full frontal nudity in it.

I saw the Thin Red Line about week after I broke my tailbone. My ass had never been so sore as it was about 1/2 way through that movie.

it kind of poisoned me to Malik because every time I think of him it just automatically associates to the memory of watching a 19 hour string of cameos of every white guy working in hollywood and a sore ass. In other words, Malik makes me literally butthurt.

>>50447349
Watching Django in the theaters, seemingly being filled with teenagers at their first R-rated film. Every single fucking one of them burst out laughing EVERY time someone got shot.

I was more confused than angry. What about that was funny?
>>
Saw World War Z with my dad and at the beginning when a truck comes crashing into them and the chaos breaks out my dad just shouts out "WELL THAT WASN'T GOOD", he has always been like that at movies. He always refused to turn his phone off and would even answer it in the movie.

Yeah, basically this. That was my main complaint with the movie; Tarantino treated slavery not as a really evil ingrained societal notion, but more as a SPECTRE-esque cartoonish enemy that could be killed by shooting some rednecks. Yes, I know autism and all that and Tarantino probably did it on purpose, and I did still enjoy the movie to a degree.

I went to see this, thinking it would at least be comparable to the god tier Gendy cartoon. Jesus christ

I saw the original Halloween in theater a couple of years ago, at one point the screen went black but the sound was still going. After five minutes of no picture they sorted it out and rewound the movie to the point where the screen went black. I kinda wish I had walked out, realizing they were showing a shitty digital DVD rip of the movie killed some of the magic.

When I saw Lincoln the sound was terrible, everything was slightly distorted and there was a constant crackling type noise. I wanted to ask management to fix the problem but there weren't any ushers in the theater and I didn't want to miss any of the movie.

I was part of that audience. Hell, me and my friend laughed the hardest. It's a ridiculous movie filled with convenient contrivances that makes it all the more absurd and laughable.
The sequel on the other hand is a near modern masterpiece.

Worst theater experience of my life. A friend called me and another buddy and told us he had won these free tickets on the radio. So we went. Why we didn't walk out or sneak into another movie before or at the break, I'll never know. But we seriously considered asking for a refund during, it was that torturous.

At least you got to see Alien in perfect quality, when I saw Halloween the audience laughed through half of the movie and it was a shitty DVD rip.

I usually wait until horror films are going out of theaters and I can be pretty sure to have the hall for myself, or until they're released on dvd before watching them, and I do so alone.
It's easier to get invested and be scared that way, you don't have a crutch in a friend or a spouse or some tough guy dudebroes and giggling scream queens ruining it for you.

Saw Lone Survivor In XD cinemark theater in Monroeville, PA last February. Black guy came in with his gf a couple minutes in movie and sat one row in front of my brother and I a few seats to the left. I shushed him after about 15 minutes into movie didn't listen. About 30 minutes later i decided to complain and the manager came in about 5 minutes after i did and gave him a warning. After he leaves the black guy isnt to happy and leaves while getting in my face saying "I beat yo ass ill see you in the parking lot afterwards im strapped in my whip ill fuck you up"

Nothing happend i left amd called theater next day amd explained they were pretty shocked. They guy got refunded his tickets for voluntarily leaving early and shit the night prior. I got 2 free passes amd thats the worst ive had. Fucking nigs man

Went to see Drag Me To Hell.

Theatre nearly empty, sit right in the middle.

During trailers, 3 student types come in & sit right behind me.

Why me?

During the course of movie it becomes apparent that one of the guys has never seen a horror movie before.

He screams like a girl, curling up in his seat, even during the suspenseful moments.

Everyone one else is cracking up with laughter, including me.

Lights go up & I shake his hand.

He could have ruined it but made it even better.

>muh loving tribute to 70s exploitation films

Its biggest mistake was to be attached to Rodriguez's lesser work that, along with the trailers, set the wrong tone for what was to follow and proved to much to many of the already fatigued by that point audience.

Went to 70mm showing of Alien (X-Rated!).

No-one knows how to operate the projector & it breaks after the first reel.

Turn to my friend but he doesn't seem phased at all, just smiling away at the screen.

Lights come up eventually & the manager comes on stage to apologise.

Pal's smile falters & he leans over to me & whispers "Who's this guy? I don't remember this bit".

Fucker had dropped some acid before we drove to the theater & was still watching the movie in his head.

Refuse to let him drive home.

Worst was when I saw The Hobbit for the first time, and actually had to pee 3 times during the movie.

I always have to go at least once during a movie, but I'm usually prepared and don't drink a lot of liquids that day. This one time I saw the Hobbit was a spur of the moment thing and I had been drinking water and snapple all day.

I went to see Underworld: Awakening. That movie is shit just like the others. Except for maybe the first one. And to make matters worse my dad has a really psychotic habit of repeating movie lines, word for word, in this awkward whisper. When the movie was finished I asked him why he does that. It's something he does very often. And he reacted by saying "I DIDN'T" Throwing the popcorn at me, storming out on the cinema, getting into the car and driving out of the car park. Making me walk to the car for no apparent reason. Yes. He IS autistic.

prepare for some english used as second language

I went to this Planetario place, which is a science museum + motherfucking dome shaped IMAX screening room. When I got there I realized most people who go there are families or students on school trips and I was there alone

So I was just waiting there leaning against a wall near the ticket thing since I didn't want to go see the fucking space shuttle model by myself. Then I see two staff people talking and looking at me, one comes up and asks if I'm waiting for someone and I say no, forced a smile and said "I'm here by myself and I'm here just for the movie" and said lol I'm a grown up and I don't want to go to the interactive science toy shit, he said "well there are some books there you could read, and those are for any age :)" I told him I was good and just waited there.

Then as I'm in the line, this rich fuck girl is asking her dad FUCKING OUT LOUD SO WE ALL HEAR if they can go to New York (this is fucking Mexico so most people around you would be brown poorfags)

When I was finally watching the movie I had to go to pee and someone had to walk me to the bathroom because you couldn't leave from the door we entered, and he said he would wait for me until I finished so he would walked me inside

>mfw I didn't want to seat where I originally was and sitted in a place where the screen looked deformed and shitty
