How to Ask Someone to Be Quiet in a Movie Theater


How to Ask Someone to Be Quiet in a Movie
Theater. Don’t you just hate it when a fellow moviegoer
provides a running commentary? Here’s how to silence the squawker. You will need Self-control Persistence Daring
and theater management. Step 1. Positively identify the miscreant. You don’t want to wrongly accuse someone
who appears to be speaking, but is actually just chewing his popcorn aggressively. Step 2. See if there’s a seat you can move to without
much fuss. In these situations, an avoidance maneuver
is always preferable to a confrontation. Step 3. Assess your adversary. Does the loudmouth have tattoos that might
have been acquired in prison? An aura of insanity? A weapon? If so, it’s probably best to wait until
the movie comes out on DVD. Step 4. Begin with a polite approach. In a soft, calm voice, explain that while
you are impressed with how well he is following the plot, you’d appreciate it if he’d
keep his observations to himself. Step 5. If he ignores you, raise your voice a notch
and say you are _begging_ him to pipe down, as you paid good money to hear Daniel Day-Lewis’s
voice, not his. Ask loudly if anyone else is bothered by this
boorish behavior. It’s in your best interest to get the entire
theater riled up against noise. Step 6. If nothing is getting through to this chucklehead,
complain to management. Even if the “manager” is a pimple-faced
teen, he has the authority to throw out unruly customers. Step 7. If all your efforts have led to naught, plus
you’ve missed a good chunk of the movie, politely request a refund. If you come off as reasonable, you might even
score some free passes. Did you know Action movies and those with
a PG rating are the most likely to have problems with audience behavior, according to officials
at one large movie-theater chain.

  1. Wrong on all counts, and I know how to spell, "you're."

    By fixating on my race, you have shown that you are a racist, even though you are completely wrong about who and what I am.

    All I did was report factual statistics about shooting — blacks shoot people much more often than whites — anyone can look up the rates, and the fact that there are so fewer blacks out there magnifies the reported numbers by a large degree.

  2. LMFAO! you make me laugh πŸ˜› you say you're NOT racist yet you say 'blacks shoot people much more than whites do, because they are NOT FULLY HUMAN.' can someone please explain to me how that is NOT racist? also, blacks can't change their race dumbass, its the pigmentation in their skin. blacks aren't poorly educated either, all the blacks in the world are smarter than you b/c they know that they can't change their race. its like if we started discriminating against eye colour. its stupid. dumbass

  3. First of all, I didn't say that. Second of all, it is a factual distinction — anyone can look up the statistics. Third, it has nothing to do with race — it is an issue regarding species.

    Your irrational anger and quickness to jump to impotent personal insults shows only that your argument is baseless.

    Seek psychological help, seriously.

  4. First of all, yes, actually, you did say that. Secondly, its secondly NOT second of all. Third, all humans are from the same species idiot, thats why were called HUMANS. Fourth, you're an idiot. Fifth, you're an idiot. Sixth, have I mentioned you're an idiot? its not irrational & its not anger. I was merely pointing out the flaws in your statements. Now, however, I am questioning your sanity. My argument is NOT baseless, it is based on you're naitivity and stupidity and your racist personality.

  5. I posted this video on another site and someone there pointed out that getting the hole room in a uproar toward that 1 person wouldn't be the best idea

  6. Step 1: Check loudmouth's gender.
    Step 2a: If male, kick in balls.
    Step 2b: If female, rape.
    Step 3: Enjoy your movie.

  7. Step 1: Politely ask him to be quiet.
    Step 2: Tell him loudly to shut up.
    Step 3: Stand up and tell him to SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!
    Step 4: Make threats to him.
    Step 5: Call the Cops, and tell management that you want a refund.

  8. @JRussoBuffaloNY Yeah, so they can all argue with each other and we can have a mass murder in our movie theaters! Great idea!

  9. @JRussoBuffaloNY Ok, you have now proven that you're superior to a stranger on the internet. You must feel complete now.
    Besides, I was just joking. You need to learn to relax and chill a little bit. You must be the life of the party, too.

  10. @JRussoBuffaloNY You also need to learn how to type. Or maybe spell. How hard is it to say "YOU" instead of u? "PEOPLE" instead of ppl and "ARE" instead of r?
    Also, you make no sense. So shut your fat face.

  11. my english teacher went to go see star wars episode 5 when it 1st came out with his wife. after he got out, there was another person who came out with him and he spoiled the ending. "hey guys you'll never believe it! darth vader is really luke's father"! compared to all the star wars fans, everyone who didn't watch it wa shocked. my teacher said that everyone gave the guy dirty looks and looked as though they wanted to decapitate is head.

  12. If all else fails….
    Scream " SHUT THE FUUUUUCK UUUPP. "
    it would also help you you were 10000000000000000 pounds, and looked scary : )

  13. i know i had to go see ice age three ans some little girl kept kicking my seat and screaming the name of every charicter that came on screen and the mom did nothing to stop her

  14. step one: yell SHUT UP
    step two :yell THIS IS SPARTA
    step three:make a big hole
    step four:kick the person into the hole
    step five: shoot the person
    step six:ENJOY

  15. Step 1: Obtain the theatre's phone number and program it into your cell phones speed dial.
    Step 2: Make note of the auditorium # your movie is in.
    Step 3: Call theatre and say "could you send a manager to theatre (#), there are/is (person or group) in (row location) being very disruptive".
    Step 4: Sit back and enjoy shocked look on person's/group's face(s) when the manager confronts them (usually accompanied by 1 or 2 theatre employees in case things get ugly).

  16. i always have a new plan for when i go to the movies, like for example: for this next Harry Potter film (which for movie 6 i couldn't enjoy because this fucking chick was talking behind me) i shall just throw my fucking coke inside his/her shirt and kick him/her out of the movie theater,………
    okay i exaggerated with the kick her ass out of the theater but i WILL put my fucking coke in the bitch's shirt!

  17. @pokelover66544 when i went to see toy story 3, this kid, OMFG, when woody first appeared on the screen, the kid yelled "LOOK MOMMY ITS WOODY!" and parent is like "YES SWEETIE I KNOW!" and then there was another scene where woody lost his hat and the kids like "WOODY'S HAT!!" "YES SWEETIE I KNOW!" and the parent didnt even try to shut him up! she just spoke at the SAME volume of the kid! you'd think she would say "yes sweetie, we're in a movie theater now be quite." >:( stupid ass bitch!

  18. You will need: A bat
    Step 1: Take your your bat
    Step 2: Wack him across the head and tell him to shut the fuck up
    Step 3: Enjoy the movie πŸ™‚

  19. you yell shut the fuck up if they dont do any thing go slap them or break their phone if using it then to add insult to injury throw pop and popcorn in their face

  20. I had that problem when I was at the movies with my friend and three kids 12/13 years old were talking through the whole movie.

  21. ok, how much does self-control cost cos ive already got persistence and daring, bought them from asda, or to americans wal-mart.

  22. the best prank is to take out a cell phane and get a freind to call you and say mom i wont pick up you crab cream im at the movies i dont care how itchy it is me and my girlfriend do that all the time or say the main chacter is going to die or yell rape

  23. step 1: turn around. beat the hell out of them
    step 2: If that doesn't work, take out a gun, point it at them and yell, "You wanna mess with me now."
    step 3: If that doesn't work, Shoot them. That'll shut 'em up

  24. after doing all these steps the film would be over so instead i just use the rule of turning around and shouting "SHUT UP" at them!!! and if dont work, thats when you body slam them!!!

  25. When I was at the cinema a while back a woman came over to me and wrongly accused me of talking and she said "shut up, I paid for my ticket to see this film". Me: "Yeah so did i". Conflict resolved by an awkward moment. Job done πŸ˜‰

  26. I was watching starwars 3D with my bf and a family in front wouldn't shut the hell up. He got so angry (he is a starwars fanatic) he told them: 'Piss off! we are trying to watch a bloody movie here!! and kids(he had two toddelers) SHUT YOUR PIE HOLES!' lets just say I went to the bathroom and stayed there. soooooo embarrasing.

    Me: "hey dont u agreed that this guy is too loud n disturbing da movie, I say we should kick him out!!

  30. My friend went to see Magi Madoka Part 2 (an anime movie) and told me that there was little kids screaming and crying because of the violence. Parents…PG IS NOT THE SAME AS G!!!! Got that!!?

  31. my friend will never be quiet at the moives. i tryed whispering "please be quiet" then i sarcasically say "wow, observant"……..then resorting to violence doesn't even help. people stare at me all the time in the cinema when im with him
