Imagine: you've queued for hours
to get a ticket to see the Two Towers, and finally, you're in the cinema.
The lights go down, the
trailers and adverts are over, and the film starts.
Suddenly, some idiot starts a
20-minute converstation on their mobile! In New York this is becoming such a big problem
that they are considering fining people who do it.
What hacks you off in the
cinema? People talking, crunching popcorn, phones? Email us in and let us know your movie
why I go to a "NO NOISE" cinema!
Sophie, 10, France
those people who take laser pointers in - IT ISN'T FUNNY!
Dave, 14, Telford
soooooo annoying when people are talking about the film behind you if they've seen it
Lizzie, 13, Monmouth
it when people rustle sweets and blow bubbles through the straws in their drinks! It's so
Megan, 15, South Wales
I hate people who tell you what's
going to happen- JUST DON'T OK.
Dean, 13, Worksop
I h8 wen
ders lil boys hu r bout 10 n makin loadsa noise tryin 2 act all ard wen dey jus look
Greta, 13, Grays
I hate people when they are opening a bag of crisps in the cinima. It distracts everyone
Ashleigh, 13, Jarrow
hate people who laugh at things that are not even funny, it's so stupid.
Sam, 10, Alfreton
the cinema is horrible, the floors all sticky and the seats teared and tampered with!
Ciaran, 12, Slough
it when people kick the back of your chair and talk and giggle all the way through!
Caroline, 13, Southampton
it when people kick the back of your chair. If you turn around and glare at them, they do
it even more!
Charlotte, 13, Manchester
really annoys me the most is when I'm sitting down and suddenly this big headed guy comes
and sits in front of me!
Sharon, 10, London
I hate it when young children
in a group go in on their own. They muck about and dont shut up, the worst is when they
throw popcorn at you.
Laura, 13, Kirby
went to see the Chamber of Secrets some idiots whistled for about an hour before someone
came and did something about it!
Danielle, 14, Liverpool
when kids start talking when the film comes to one of its high points, that really makes
me just want to scream ' SHUT UP'.
John, 12, Liverpool
people who go to the cinema with you and then when something happens, they say, "ooh,
did you see that?" No, moron, I paid £4 to come and look at the ceiling!
Jess, 14, Bristol
ABSOLUTELY hate it when a giant comes and sits in front of me and blocks my view of the
screen. It really spoils a film not being able to see it.
Allie, 15, Springfield
someone really tall or someone with massive hair sits in front of you even when they can
sit anywhere else and you can't see!!!!
Cassie, 16, Warwickshire
the people that talk and kick my seat all the way through the film. I mean if you go to
the cinema it should be to see the film, not talk.
Judith, 14, Edinburgh
mobile phones really annoying in the cinema and people should not even have them on and
that really annoys me so much.
Karen, 16, Wokingham
it when people come into the film late and block your view trying to get to their seats,
because you can't see- why can't they show up on time!!
Jen, 14, Farnborough
crunching popcorn so loud that you can't hear the film itself especially when the best
bits come on. It's so irratiting. People should have some manners.
Sara, 16, Newcastle
those people who go to the toilet during the film, and usually at a very important part!
There is so little leg room, its hard for them to get past! It gets soo annoying!
Larka, 13, Chester
I may be a fuss pot but three things annoy me in a cinema. People
eating loudly, people coming into the film late and blocking our view and people going to
the toilet in the middle of the film.
Emily, 10, Wickford
to see Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets with a few of my friends and a women's
mobile phone went off and these lads in front were talking the whole way through.
Kelly, 13, Liverpool
might sound really stupid but I'm a vegetarian and the smell of meat makes me heave. The
people that eat meat in the cinema right next to me, and cough and splutter do my head in.
Kylz, 16, swansea
hate it when people have big plastic bags and they keep making a horrible noise, it is
really annoying. And teens play on the moblies and they always go off in the film and that
is when steam starts coming out from your ears!!
Katie, 12, Swansea
it when you finally get to see a film you've been dying to see for ages and the people
behind uyo coment on everything or give the whole storyline away. Or when some 10-year-old
boys try to sound really cool by saying stuff like "That's sweet" about a gun!
Jen, 13, Oxford
people who sit right at the edge of the seats and then moan at you for trying to get to
seats right in the centre. Also last time I went to the cinema I had to pay £1.40 for a
bottle of water!! And it didn't even taste good. Everything is so overpriced!
Pete, 14, Olney
it when you get people in the cinema, who think they are really cool and chat loudly and
leave the cinema screen like 10 times then come back in and are always giggling and
throwing popcorn and stuff. We pay to watch the film, not to put up with this annoyance.
Reister, 14, Staines
hate is when people leave their popcorn pots lying about, spill drinks on the floor and
make it all sticky and put chewing gum wherever they want to. I hate the rubbish all
around the cinema because it makes it very unpleasant. They should put all their rubbish
in the bin, why can't they understand??!!! It just really annoys me!!
Linda, 13, Leeds
annoys me when the trailers are on. I can't see why they put a car commercial on when it
is on every day. Also, it is selfish when big blokes come and sit in front of the kids and
when people kick the chairs and go to the loo without even being kind by slipping out
another way. Also, people laugh when I want to hear the good line, eg, "Harry, what
happened in the dungeon is a secret, so naturally, the whole school knows" snigger,
laugh and you don't hear Harry asking what happened.
Natasha, 11, Essex
really gets on my nerves when kids start mucking about and throwing popcorn at each other
and shouting. Some people actually want to see the film, not listen to a bunch of immature
kids making a real idiot of themselves. If they didn't want to see the film then why did
they come? Also, I really hate it when someone's mobile rings even after the message comes
up on the screen, telling you to turn it off. And what makes that worse is that fact that
the mobile you hear always has a really cheesy ringtones - like The Simpsons. But, there
is one habit that I think I am guilty of (so I can't really complain!) and that is
propping my legs up on the seat in front (but I never do it when there is somebody in the
seat - I'm not that mean!)!
