Just a query after going to see Ghost Town today for free in Derby Showcase de lux. Something I've found quite often when going to see free films, has anyone else found the same or is it cinema going in general now?
*People arriving late; walking in 5, 10, 15 mins after a film has started- disruptive and annoying if you have to move etc for them, seems to happen more with free films than those I've paid for in the past
*Rudeness; we asked two girls to be quiet this morning after they talked all the way through the beginning credits- their argument was that nothing had happened yet and continued to talk and giggle until Gervais spoke. Personally i see the cinema as an experience- I work hard at uni and when my boyfriend and I go out to the cinema we like to enjoy it, not wonder about when 'they' are going to shut up! If you only want to listen to the characters talk and not watch the film then go away and listen to the radio.
*Annoying habits; rustling sweet bags are still an ageold pain. But today this guy had REALLY SQUEAKY SHOES and kept moving his feet all through the film...all i could hear was squeak.....squeak,....squuuueeeeeaaaaaaaak.....so annoying!!
Am I the only person who finds it really difficult to switch off when I'm in the cinema and not notice all these things?
I find it far worse at the free showings-people seem to think 'its free, what the hell' but at the end of the day, I still had to drive for 30mins to get there, etc.
rant over...for now.. lol.
