Seeing a movie in the theater allows you to share the laughs, surprises, and excitement with a room full of fans. There are a few etiquette do’s and don’ts that everyone should observe to ensure both you and the other people at the screening can enjoy the film. Here’s what you should know before heading to the theater.
Order food and drinks before you take your seats.
Consuming food and drinks while watching a movie is an essential part of the experience, but you’ll minimize distractions if you get what you want before the show starts. Then, you can pass out treats to your kids and help them unwrap straws and candies during the previews.
Turn off and put away smartphones and digital devices.
Few things will annoy a cinema-loving audience more than people who fail to silence their phones. Even if a phone is silent, checking social media or responding to texts will continually light up the theater, which can be distracting for other viewers.
Arrive late or continue to talk during the movie.
Get to the box office early or purchase your tickets online, so you’re in your seats before the previews are ready to roll. Everyone should be settled, and conversations should be ended before the lights go down and the feature film starts. Many theaters have policies that allow them to ask people who are talking during the show to leave.
Leave a mess.
It’s not easy to keep track of kernels of popcorn in a dark movie theater, but you can avoid the messiest mishaps by planning ahead. Always use the cupholders to keep from spilling drinks. By packing some wipes, you can keep your hands clean after enjoying a buttery popcorn or finishing an order of sweet potato fries.
Luxury dinner-and-a-show cinemas with table service help you avoid the issue altogether, because the staff will clear away your empties, making these theaters the ideal choice when you want a full meal with your film.
