Watching a movie relieves your stress. But it can get disappointing and embarrassing if you don’t know the basic etiquettes that are to be followed ina movie theatre. There are no hard and fast rules that you need to follow. But following such etiquettes in a theatre will make you as well as the other people’s experience in the theatre a good one. So if you have visited a movie theatre, there are high chances that you would know most of the etiquettes. But if you are a first-timer, remember the following etiquettes before you enter a movie theater.

No speaking

During the course of the movie, try to make the minimum noise possible. Do not make noises during the movie. Noises or even whispers are enough to distract you as well as the others. Talking, giggling, texting or anything that distracts other people is an act of disrespect. It’s better that you turn off your cell phones as you enter the movie theatre or keep it on silent. Even the vibration fromyour cell phone may be distracting during an intense scene or a very serious moment in the movie.

No walking in between

Don’t be late forthe movie theatre. Even if you are late, do not try to come in between the line of vision of the other audiences. This looks very disrespectful to the other people. Once you are late, try to settle down in the closest place possible to you. Try avoiding sitting in the front row. Firstly, because you have to watch the movie with your head up and secondlybecause if you are late, then choosing the seats in the front row may distract the other audience and you may block their view. If the seats at the back are empty, try to sit there as you won’t distract many people from there.


If you don’t do the above-said things, you are likely to have a good movie experience, provided the movie is a good one. Avoiding the above pointswill help you avoid embarrassment. You can watch the movie peacefully and allow others to watch as well. So the next time you go to a theatre, just think how you would feel if someone does the above things while you are watching the movie. And if you do not like the theatre experience, you can download free movies online and watch them in your own house with your friends, family or colleagues. You are sure to have a good time.
