    Forgive if this is being discussed elsewhere, I checked the first few pages and didn't see anything similar, although I noticed it mentioned within threads about other subjects, and thought it would be cool to ask this question -

    What were the reactions of the theater-goers after the end of the movie? My theater clapped all together at the end, and most of us stood up to leave... but realized there were more little clips sprinkled throughout the credits, so we were all just standing up looking at the screen until they finished.

    I saw that a few people's theater-goers gave a standing ovation, and other applause, what else did you guys experience? I'm interested to know how many rounds of applause and similar things happened, because this is actually the first time I've experienced this level of enthusiasm at a movie. Every other movie I've ever gone to, we just leave when it's done. This one, we clapped. I rarely clap at any event, but I joined in (actually, I was one of the first to start, even weirder for me). It was just that satisfying an experience that I felt I needed to show my appreciation for having seen such an excellent movie.

    So that's enough of my rambling, what about you guys?

    A lot of people in our theater clapped - but even if they didn't they were smiling and buzzing about it.

    Round of applause at the end. People loved when Prime first transformed. And the biggest reaction may have been when Bumblebee changed car forms because the chick called the car something like a piece of junk.....very funny indeed!!!

    Huge cheers for Prime taking out Bonecrusher, Bobby Bolivia's line about his mammy, Pheremone levels, Sam's more than meets the eye line, Frenzy going crazy inside Air Force One, Bumblebee's first chase scene, as well as Prime's first speech.

    No applause but the biggest laughs were for the Bumblebee reformat, Bumblebee piss and the masturbation joke. Second place goes to Ratchet's pheromone levels crack.

    Tues night showing--
    Lots of clapping: First BB transformation, first appearance of Prime, BB gets new alt mode, Prime killing Bonecrusher, BB and Barricade racing, etc. Clapping for most any G1 quote. And lots of clapping at the end. Awesome experience, you just knew everyone was a big TF fan and clapped along.

    Tonight----Only like 3 or 4 quick claps from the same 2 guys.

    Excellent! These are the kinds of things I like to hear, thanks to everyone who replied :) 

    Planning to go see the movie again tonight, will be interested to see the reaction this time. I know my reaction will be pretty much the same.

    There were about 4 guys (who I saw) with Optimus Prime helmets on, there was a ton of whooping and hollering - in particular during the BB/Barricade chase scene, and during the Prime/Megatron fight.

    The crowd went crazy when the credits came up, I can honestly say I have never heard a crowd clap so loudly after a movie in my life!
