Going to the cinema in Lagos, in the evening and during holidays is a "no-no".
Why? - The most happen at the cinema.
If you're not sitting next to a talkative, you're sitting in front of that one who has seen the movie and has come again to be a spoiler, or you're sitting behind the one who's in the cinema hall to take selfies and fiddle with his/her phone during the screening of the movie - thereby disturbing you with the phone light.
Those who come late to the hall when the movie had begun, knowing so well that the hall is full and there's definitely no vacant back seat, will climb the stairs hoping to find a vacant seat, with their flashlight in your face ( and NO sorry will be said) then, they'll obstruct your view for about five, ten seconds or more as they decide whether or not to sit in front.
In the end, guess what? - they'll go down the stairs to seat in front. - As I do the worst to them in my mind (Slap, Kick, Punch, Break their legs... Arrrghh).
You also have those who "laugh out loud" at the lamest joke but can't laugh at the Oscar-winning joke 'cos it's beyond them. - And when did clapping become a thing? - The actor pulls a stunt and he get's a standing ovation just as the actor is about to say something worth the standing ovation. But then, they all continue to clap and analyze the stunt then miss out on what the actor had said.
All of the above listed are those I can tolerate. Those I can never tolerate, are those who have no idea about the movie they are watching then they begin to ask questions during the screening or drag religion and culture into a movie.
What does your pastor have to do with Passengers?
If your culture forbids Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis' Friends With Benefits, what's your business here?
So my perfect movie time at the cinema is in the morning (weekdays) or late night. then you have fewer people in the hall.
What ticks you off the most at the cinema - s.h.a.r.e with me in the comment section below.
