The last time I shead a tear in the cinema was when I saw The Lion King.

But today was a different story. In English, we were watching the film version of Lord of the Flies and the whole class burst out laughing when a boulder landed on one of the boys. They were also shouting "Rewind the tape!!"

I remember when I was 9 I saw The Little Mermaid twice, and then the third time I was like 20 minutes into it. My parents were in another theater, also viewed their movie twice, and finally walked out and pulled me out from where I was sitting.

If you're forced to watch a kiddie movie, at least be in a group to look dignified. There were six of us and ended up watching Toy Story 2. That wasn't so bad compared to one of my friends who once tried to hit on this girl, they were alone together watching DINOSAUR. As you can imagine, it's not a good slink-to-your-girl-and-bust-a-move kind of movie.

I nearly cried when I first watched Preditor, it was very sad when that poor alien who only wanted to hunt humans and add their skulls to his collection was dying, but I started laughing again when he set that self destruct bomb off

Take a bottle of vodka with you incase of backup... Any film is more entertaining that way.

I've never been kicked out of the cinema, but I know some very amusing (and probably false) stories from my friends. One group went into McDonalds, while pissed, and kept clicking their fingers and saying "Garcon" to get the attention of the workers, then they kept complaining about how crappy the food and service was until they got kicked out.

I also must look really dodgy because if I go into any pubs or clubs or anything, I always get searched for drugs while my friends don't. Ironic since I don't smoke drugs and they mostly do.

Then there's the airport metal detector but I'll leave that story for another day because it's just too funny!

Anyway I only cried in a film once, which was Homeward Bound when I was 8. I really thought the dog (or was it a cat) had died. I was so happy when it came back hurt but alive... awww

Also Legally Blonde has a good memory for me. It was the film I saw on my first ever date. Since I spent most of the time cuddling up to my new love and sharing drinks and sweets, I didn't care if the film was crap.

I think I nearly cried at that same bit in Homeward Bound too Archie. It was the Golden Retreiver who looked like he had died, and it brought back really sad memories of my first Golden Retriever who had actually died.

I took my little sister to see Ice Age, halfway through the film the charecters go sliding about on this huge ice ramp slide thing, anyway near the end of this slide we see a UFO burried inside the Ice, and the little baby charecter made the [star trek] Vulcan Hand sign (  _\\// )

I, being a huge trekkie, found this absolutley hilarious and proceeded to laugh louder than I had ever laughed before. Unfortunatley I was apparently the only trekkie in the entire cinema as everyone else remained deadly silent and stared right at me, whilst the people behind me asked me to quiet down or leave.

damn them. damn them all.

I still remember my Mom took me to see the movie "Analyze this", and during the movie, someone's cell phone went off, and I thought it was in the movie, but then I saw a man running in shadows out of the theater with the cell phone.

One of the worst experiences during that movie was that my mom and I were sitting close to a speaker (whenever we go out to eat, go to a movie, etc., I always sit on the outside because I frequently have trouble sitting through something), and at the beginning it was all quiet, and then comes out this ear piercing CRASH!!! Ever since, I have told my friends that they should NEVER get a seat near a speaker or else you would leave the movie theater with your ears ringing.

Our local cinema has the old no phone rule - incredibly, no phones rang and no one spoke during LOTR 2 the other day

I usually take Vodka to the movies, makes everything/one more palatable.  Saw the Two Towers yesterday.  Great Flick, the theatre was full to overflowing.  Someone had a little tot with them, over three hours I can honestly say I think I heard that kid only two or three times.  That was one well behaved sprog.  The theatre was old and the seats were small and cramped.  I have a bruise on my knee from that damn drink holder.  Thank goodness for Polar Ice(tm)Vodka.  At the end where the Ents were laying waste to Isengard, we were like Whoo Hooo....  laff But I digress, this supposed to the Sad thread.

dear god, never get to a metal concert early then.

Anyway, anyone see the trailer for this movie when they saw The Two Towers? I'm definitely going to see that, no matter how horrible the reviews are. Jim Carrey getting God(who, in the most excellent twist ever, is played by Morgan Freeman)'s powers is just enough to make me wanna see it.

Here's the synopsis:
"Jim Carrey is Bruce Nolan, a "human interest" television reporter in Buffalo, New York who is discontented with almost everything in life, despite his popularity and the love of his girlfriend Grace (Jennifer Aniston). At the end of the worst day in his life, Bruce angrily ridicules and rages against God - and God responds. He appears in human form (Morgan Freeman) and, endowing Bruce with all of His divine powers, challenges Bruce to take on the big job and see if he can do it any better."

I remember in grade 7. I went on a double date with some ppl. And we wanted to stay a long time at the movies so we dicided to see the longest one, at the time. The movie was 'the insider'. We walked in the cinema and saw al these 30 to 60 year old concintrating hard on the screen. And us four were like yelling and laughing and running up and down the ales. We had several ppl swear at us, and an usher person telling us to be quiet. And now that i'm older, i realise how ANYOING we would of been. I would of screamed at people if they did that to me. (i think that makes sence, sorry if it doesn't)

ive never been kicked out of a movie. i actually have the amazing ability of sitting quietly and paying attention to the screen. Yes, lets all take a minute to envy me......yes...yes..ok, that's enough.
  I cry at movies all the time though. But not hysterically or anything, i can usually get through a sad movie without anyone except for the person sitting directly next to me noticing. Except for the 7 times i saw titanic in the theater. i cried so hard the person sitting next to me the 7th time i saw it thought i was hyperventalating. it was kinda weird though i had never done that before. i am so desensitized to violence i can watch the goriest and bloodiest movies without even wincing, i laughed my way through Bride of Chucky. And went into the morgue to view an autopsy, but show me anybody slowly dieing with their families, or with their familys watching and i lose it. Like that scene where the irish mother puts her children in their beds and reads to them, or the one where the old couple where clutching each other in their beds as the water rose up. i was whimpering in a very undignified way. the last movie that made me cry was Lilo and Stitch. oh, and ice Age. but it was dignified tears, no more wailing for me!

Well, I don't really have a getting kicked out of the the theater story, but during Attack Of The Clones I nearly peed my pants because I didn't realize how long the movie was and foolishy bought a jumbo size soda...so I never get a drink over "large" for any movie longer than 2 hours

1 - a local theater has a No Bags policy. So the girl I'm with and I take everything out of our shopping bags, condense it all down to our pockets and one tiny bag the size of a softball. The attendant refuses to let us in with this tiny bag which is stuffed full of miscellaneus tiny things. I offer to let her look in the bag. I take the things out and show her. She still refuses to let us in. so we have to stand there in the line and take out everything and stow it in our already full pockets. I take the bag and stuff it in my pocket too, and the woman lets us in. I made loud mention of how those items are much less dangerous in our pockets than in the bag.

2 - I went to see the first Austin Powers movie with a couple of friends. We bought water guns and used them at the end of the movie when everyone was getting up. Some strangers were very confused, getting squirted  at random in a movie theater. We were uncaught.

I almost got kicked out of "Big Daddy". The movie sucked so much, and I just couldn't take it, so I threw a big bottle of Power-ade at the screen.

It was pretty cool--it was empty and made of plastic, so it carried well. It sailed through the air, for everyone to see, and it came down with a big echo-ey crash at the front of the theater. There was a slight murmur through the crowd.

Cut to about 20-30 minutes later. The movie is still sucking! Even after I threw a bottle at the screen--what nerve! I was pretty pissed off at the suckiness, so I threw another bottle. This time, the whole crowd groans, with people saying "I can't believe he did it AGAIN!". A couple of rednecks in the back start yelling something intelligible at me, followed by "You bald-head! Fuzz-head!"

Someone alerted the manager, and he came in. My only reaction was "oh shit". Then he walks to the front of the theater, and picks up a bottle. "Oh shit." For being such a loud and obnoxious jerk, I am very afraid of confrontations. The manager walks straight towards me, and I had no way of getting out.

"Is this your bottle?" he asks.

"Ummm...not to my knowledge." I say.

Then he shines a tiny little flashlight in my face, I guess to get a good look if he ever has to describe me to the authorities.

It could have been an ugly incident, but after the movie, I came clean and apologized. He said it was ok, because the bottles didn't damage the screen, but never do it again.

The two rednecks from before overheard me apologizing to the manager, and walked alongside me as I left the theater.

"So you're the one who threw the bottle." the deeper-voiced redneck says.

"Heh. Yeah, sorry about that, guys." I say.

The redneck chuckles to himself, pauses, and then says "...dipshit." and they walk away.

Even now, years after it happened, the phrase "Bald-head! Fuzz-head! ....dipshit." is a full-time part of my catch-phrase vocabulary.

But the moral of the story is that Big Daddy was the worst movie ever made.

My nephew , in 1996 or around there, cried during the beginning of "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory".
It was the opening credits when the chocolate's splashing around. It was the theatre re-release.
My nephew was 3. My brother  went with him and he was told by the usher to take him outside. He wasn't really kicked out, more like asked to leave.

That scene in Titanic, when Kate Winslet is clutching the plank, floating there, everyone else is dead, and the boat comes along in the silence. . .  a guy with a loudhailer shouts "Is anyone alive out there?"
. . . it echoes
. . . and Kate is trying to respond, but she can't
. . .

I know a girl who, in the middle of the cinema, at this point, screamed
