11 Things We Hate About Going To The Cinema

January 15, 2016 | Posted by Lesley Jakobsen | FILM, LIFE | 3 Comments |

Resist the Urge

  1. Old people reading out credits and explaining jokes.
  2. At  cinemas which allow you to bring wine in, the wineglass never fits the cup-holder.
  3. Cinemas which do not allow you to bring wine in.
  4. Star Wars
  5. Pouting actresses (yes you, Renee)
  6. Snacks packed in wrapping made at The Noisy Noisy Wrapping Factory.
  7. The woman who came in late and sat in front of us at the Dendy in Newtown – eating a hamburger.  Seriously.
  8. Resisting the urge to go down to the little stage in front of the screen and do The Charleston (with jazz hands)
  9. The freaking endless ads and trailers.
  10. That we never see these people –

darko cinema
11.  See our review of Personal Shopper.

Also, try to avoid that flophouse L.A. cinema where garment manufacturers on the skids hook-up with their friendly neighbourhood arsonist…

    ...or folks using their Twisties wrappers inappropriately....and people at a Dendy's insisting on their numbered seat when the cinema is 90% empty.

      Thanks for that, Smug. You are every bit as grumpy as we are. But what are your fellow movie-goers doing with their Twisties wrappers that is "inappropriate"? What kind of cinemas are you going to?
