I thought of this, due to yesterday. Post your own worst theater experience. Mine: I went to see Ice Age 4, and I had one free ticket. They told me I couldn't use it because it's only for use on movies that have been out for 2 weeks. So I went in, saw that there were lines. Well, supposedly. There were just those weird extending fabric fences made out of seat belts whatever they're called. No one was there. I WAS THERE AT 3:00, and the movie didn't start till 4:00, so I grabbed some chairs (They moved the tables and replaced them with the line) and sat down. Someone came up and asked what the line was for and I told them Ice Age 4. She stood behind me. I went to check and see if the "CLEANING IN PROCESS" sign was gone, and it was. I went in, and there was no one else in there. The screen was still just a black screen with music playing. (And stereo ads) Quickly, the woman who was behind me came in with 2 other people and plopped down in front of me. I have personal space, so I moved up a few seats. Later after the stupid ads started (What happened to the trailers?! I don't want a first look at "GET A LIFE". No kidding.), a ton of little kids came in as if it was a field trip. One of them insisted to sit as high up as possible, but luckily, one of the adults told him not to. (Seriously, every time they got up, he turned to try and go to the top). Some people came and plopped down only a seat away from me, so I moved to the top seats. Later, some mom and her kid came in and sat down across from the stairs. The kid I think was retarded. She kept blabbing throughout the movie, always saying "WHY ARE THY SAD" or "WHERE ARE THEY GOING" and crap like that, and then later some parents and their two tiny kids came and plopped down one seat away. Throughout the movie, the baby would cry, and bump against the seat repeatedly making some noise every time, and the older kid (about 2 years old) would mumble all the time. Then some man and woman came and plopped down in front of me with their big heads practically blocking the whole screen. Eventually the crying baby's dad took it out for about 5 minutes. And later, the baby tried to get into my bag (I use it to sneak in snacks without paying $500) and then I moved it to the seat on the other side of me. The baby cried again, and the dad realized it wanted to be in the mom's lap. The dad tried to tell her but she purposefully ignored him for ages before finally getting up to take the baby out. She stood at the top of the stairs watching the movie for about 10 minutes before she managed to remember what the hell she was doing, and actually took it out. And she was only gone for about a minute and a half. And then for the rest of the movie I had to suffer through the little retarded 4-year-old saying stupid things CONSTANTLY. Oh, also, someone in front of me had their phone on for about 5 minutes DURING the movie. And the light was right in my face. And another thing, it looked like at one point some freak and their little kid took a picture of me with their freaking phone. Either that, or it's light got in my face while they took a picture of themselves. Beat that.
