I remember when I went to see the first Lord of the Rings in theaters. Fantastic movie. But before the movie started, a large group of about a dozen middle school kids were sitting two rows ahead of me. On this particular evening they felt the need to bring their schoolyard drama to the theater. To put the noise level into perspective, just imagine a hallway in a middle school during class changes. It wasn’t until about 20 minutes in when a guy, who sounded like was in his mid-30’s, yelled “Will you SHUT THE HELL UP!?” that finally made half of them leave and the other half shutting the hell up. Also, an employee finally walked in with one of those spiffy cone flashlights to help alleviate the situation.
It seems like every time I watch a movie, and I had seen it when it was playing in theaters, I always remember the horrible audience experience, if any, that had been attached to it.
Now excuse me while go back to watching “Annoying Commentator In the Seat Behind Me”-…I mean “The Dark Knight.”
