Cinema Etiquette and (some) Black People (especially Black Women).

I will preface this by saying im very well aware that Stereotypes and Generalizations are bad , but this shit is real and fuckin annoying and can be embarrassing.

So i went to watch "Get Out" on Friday at AMC Magic in Harlem (great movie by the way highly recommend it for those who aint seen it by now), some of the behaviour is pretty appalling from the jeering, cussing , to screaming at the screen, to loud conversations, checking and texting your phones during the movie, then when people kindly ask for you not to do that because you want to concentrate or hear the dialogue they get all defensive and mad.

This has happened in every movie I have gone to see where there is a predominately large Black audience and "alot" of black women i have seen or been around are really the biggest perpetrators of this shit , trynna make themselves the centre of attention instead of the movie we all equally paid money to go watch.

I dont mind people enjoying the movie and reacting with whats going on screen which does make the cinema experience really good especially if everyone is into the movie but some of the behaviour is fucking uncalled for and really seems exaggerated, and im sorry to say but when i go to neighbourhoods with predominately white audiences its never ever like this.

Anyone else have a problem with this ,does this or has noticed this and do you have an issue with it ?

    Is it safe to say this isn't just a stereotype? It's not so much that black people are more rude or ignorant than other moviegoers. A lot of black people just seem to think movies are an interactive experience.

    there is interaction with the movie experience and there is acting like the cinema is a Bar, and not being aware where you are ,also that there are other who paid to watch the movie.

    Lol i never been to a movie where ppl applaud the film.

    That would be weird as hell

    everybody i know stood up and clapped at the end of The Dark Knight and All the Marvel movies.

    Well thats strange.

    To applaud a movie screen is pointless.

    That can bee annoying but you can kind of look at the small screen/big screen as an equivalent to sports to women. Word to





    in before the inevitable mens thread :lol:

    Babies are the worst, get a babysitter or stay your ass at home. I saw this bad ass kid kick seats in front of him while his mom not paying attention because she was hugged up with her date.

    Had a teen couple make out and kiss smacking the whole movie.

    I know several people who will raise hell if they see other people talking during the movie. I get it, but they can be just as bad as the talkers. Only makes matters worse for everyone else.

    I've been over the theater experience ever since you could cop a tv larger than 50 inches. Tickets are expensive, snacks are expensive, I have the worst case of misophonia known to man, and that's on top of the other people being there or the movie turning out lame. That's just another place my asocial ass don't tread.

    im the biggest movie hypocrite there is..

    i talk throughout the movie..
    i try to keep it down.. i really do.. but if its good fuck it!

    BUT i hate when people talk TO ME..
    like if we on a date ill tell the bitch beforehand.. dont talk to me.. even if im talkin to u.. its a subconscious setup! lol

    and i wish a muthafucka would say some shit to me about my talkin.. one time a white guy go tell me he tryin to enjoy the movie.. told him me too! and kept on..

    u wanna control the environment keep yo ass at home..

    i dont have to enjoy the movie as u..
    and im not gonna go outside of myself jus so u can enjoy the movie.. who the fuck are u??

    jus sayin..
