Default I hate movie theaters!

I recently went to see the Die Hard 4 movie, and some stupid family took a 3 year old to the theater with them. 5 minutes into the movie, the boy starts talking and yelling as if he were at the park. And the parents pretend that nothing is wrong.
Since I paid $11.00 to watch the movie and didn't want to hear a boy scream. I told the ushers about the boy. The parents got a warning. Just a few minutes later, the boy starts to scream again Another lady complains to the usher, and finally they kick out the entire family

As they're being escorted out. The mom gets pissed off at me and the other lady and tells us F**CK you!

Have any of you experienced this kind of BS from people who don't give a S##t that you paid to watch a movie without interruption?

By the way, this is the 4th time my movie gets interrupted by either a child, some teenagers talking in the back row, or people acting as movie commentators. I'm sticking with blockbuster from now on.

Yeah I use torrentz.

I would buy the movie if I could it the day it hits theaters. Like 25 bucks walk into the store and own it.

Just shows how dumb people are. Parents are responsible for their kids and for those ladies to yell at you that shit is wrong. I work at a movie theatre. I know what the customers are allowed to do and not allowed to do. It's not rocket science. You go to see a movie, you sit down, stfu, and watch the movie. If there's a complaint, there's supposed to be a warning addressed. If that warning isn't respected, you're kicked the fuck out. It's just incredible how stupid human beings can be.

Man, ever since the start of the school year, the theater I work at has been deeeaaaad. Maybe 3 or 4 people in one theater during the day, it's crazy. Theaters that hold any where from 100 to 300 people, completely empty.

I wouldn't have been too too mad in that particular case, considering they eventually kicked the family out of the theater. That's about all you can ask for.

Taking the fam to see Die Hard is sort of bad, but it's only PG13. I saw this couple coming out of a movie last night, with the baby stroller by their side, and they came out of fu*king DEATH SENTENCE!!! That is no movie to take a baby to, but it wouldn't suprise if it slept through the whole thing.

It's crap like that that's made me stay away from them. Part of the reason it pisses me off is those kids should not even be watching movies like that - I once saw some 7-8-9 year olds with their parents watching Boogie Nights!
Not to mention the #@$#% cell phones that go off non-stop.... With the price of big screens falling fast, you'd think that the theaters would really crack down on that kind of stuff. I feel sorry for them though, it's as if they have to play babysitters... For me, nothing beats my big screen and Netflix....

I was at the movie theaters one time watching SUPERBAD and all of a sudden a baby starts crying and everyone is seriously WTF!! The adult took her out of the theater and she was quiet from then on. But seriously...bringing a child to superbad. Have some respect for people around you.

Why didnt you call her a C*nt afterwards?
