A bit ago, I posted about really young kids / babies in a movie theater. http://www.tdpri.com/threads/young-kids-at-a-movie.841027/#post-8432443 Yesterday, the Wife, the Boy, and I went to see the second Ant Man movie. I wrapped up work a bit early, and we headed out. Again, we had a bad experience. We had a group of women a few rows behind us that laughed - very loudly - at every line, whether it was funny or not, or meant to be funny or not. Even a drama scene line along the lines of "Hmmm, we need to go back to the lab and figure this out", and these women were "HA, HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!" We were all irritated - but we held our tongues. They were loud enough that the whole theater heard them. I thought they were elderly (you know how 70-somethings laugh), or maybe challenged in some way (what is the correct term here?). When the movie ended, we looked back, and it appeared to be a 30-something group of women. My guess is they had ladies' day (the movie started at 16:30 [4:30 PM]), and had been drinking heavily before it started. None of them appeared to be "challenged", but you never know for sure. Maybe we should have asked someone at the theater to intervene? I think there was only a handful of people working there (we paid for tickets, and there was nobody to take them; we just walked into the theater with the full tickets in pocket). I always fear an assistance home brings people to the theater for an outing, and we are reporting them for not being "normal" (however that is defined). This does not appear to be the case, but again - you never know. So, we are two for two in the "bad movie theater experience" category this summer. This is why we normally rent or stream, but we do - or at least used to - enjoy going to the theater.
