I think it was the first time I went to the movies I was 12 years old. My friends said it is fun to throw pop corn over the belcony. I was shocked but it turned out they only threw a few piece and I threw one. Then one friend said we better not do anymore because some one might tell and we will get kicked out. I was feeling so guilty for my one piece that I wasn't going to do anymore anyway. I never did that again. However I did experience pop corn being throw all over the theartre from the back rows many times in my teen years and a few in my adult years with the teens behind me. I think they know they can only get away with a few because it stops just when they feel the crowd getting tense. That is my movie story. Sorry no romantic kissing stories either. I always wanted to watch the movie I came to see. Am I boring or what?

NO, I'm boring LOL. Ya I was thinking about my comment after I wrote it and I thought gee I didn't do dumb things at the movies but I sure did a few other silly things and real dumb too. Thank God my parents would of killed me if I got caught doing anything bad so I didn't stray to far from the straight and narrow. Mind you, that didn't stop my older sister and brother, LOL .

where we lived our theater was right across the parking lot from K- mart and a grocery store. Sometimes we would go to the movies and stay there and watch it then we would hide in the bathrooms until the second showings started so we could watch another movie. That was probably the rudest thing we ever did. the silliest thing was sneaking out of the movie to go to K- mart to play with the toys and one time us girls were in the bathroom giggling so loudly there was some workers outside the door telling the manager we was in the smoking pot. It was funny. Those are my fondest moments. I really never did anything private in a theater with a boyfriend.

i guess my friends and i were really rude at the movies when we shouted even if the scenes weren't scary at all! and the weird part, we were watching a comedy. the people behind us were already hissing but we didn't care. that was like 4 years ago. now i'm more mature and i even get mad at those who did the same things we did. not i understood why the people behind us were mad that time.

first,i have to refer to one point that i am still in my young age.second ,i also have to confess that going to the cinema is a kind of luxury behave for me ,not only the spending,but the precious time that i will have to invest.so far,i could hardly recall the vivid situation,where i enjoyed watch moive comfortably,eating the chips and popcorn with my closest friend. of course,it is the high time for me to change something and make my life a little bit more recreational and rich and colourful.so,here ,you have remind me of the possiblity to change my lifestyle,and try to go to cinema to enjoy.

well silly and rude would go hand in hand coz looking back, I would think that what we did was not only silly but rude too. The entire gang would enter late, deliberately step on the toes of others, create a ruckus, argue unnecessarily, holler and shout and then have a laugh amongst ourselves as to ‘how that guy fumbled when we cornered him’ or ‘how matronly preaching that mom-type is’. Those were carefree days of reckless adolescence and early youth and we were headstrong and thought we could get away with anything. And since the gang had guys too, we girls were all the more exuberant and enthused about everything. Again private and fondest memories go together. As you know, we Indians are quite inhibited in public displays of our affection and a decade back, people stared all the more. But there was this particularly mushy candy-floss movie and we were just 21 and so much in love and it was the first time we actually went to a movie – just the two of us. Though we did nothing (Indian sensibilities at work again), our hearts were full of love for each other and we knew what the other was thinking and each scene that touched our hearts seemed to be tailor-made for us. Glad you brought up this topic Bella, it revived one of my fondest memories of life.

This aremy answers to what I know they do and that I didn't I don't like watching movies..I like the comfort of my home...making out at the movies I guess..that's common to teens..I guess..throwing popcorns on the back of 2 people making out would be rude. I once watched a movie and it was so scary that I shouted so loud everyone was startled..lol..I had to shrink down on my seat

I remember going to see Halloween in the theaters when it came out with my bro and friend and I really have a dislike for rob zombie now. LOL!!!! I was so pale and sick by the time I left my bro and friend thought I was going to puke. We learned I can not do gorey movies but psychological thrillers are fine. LOL!!!

Hello bellaofchaos!:-) I was going to skip this discussion because there was nothing I could relate but then I saw your last question and I thought I'll share my only experience. It may, or may not, surprise you that I have never gone to theater or cinema in my entire life but once, I do see movies, though, at home. The only time I went was when my class fellows and I went to industrial visits in and around another city, arranged by our University, and I had past my teen years. There was a documentary/movie about founder of my nation and my friends group decided to go to see it and I went with them. My foundest memory about it was that I enjoyed company of my friends in a different environment. The movie wasn't made that great but I still liked it. I don't know if it was because I love the founding father of our nation or because I loved the company of my friends or maybe both played their role! :-)

I went to the movies frequently as a child.It was a hobby we shared with my mother. So since she lives 1300 miles away when I miss her I pop in a movie I saw with her and she isn't so far away. Don't think I was ever rude in the movie. Silliest thing I ever did was enter the theatre before the end of the showing so I could know how I movie ended before I saw it. Boyfriend: Pretty typical sat in back did a little necking. Nothing too extreme.

First think that this was a long time ago since my own children are older than teens! The silliest I can think of was passing a certain color of candy down a line of about 10 of us from one end to the other........not all that silly maybe Can't think of rude.......unless it was getting in underage OR knowing someone else was underage that went in with a group of us Never went to the movies with a boyfriend, but did with a 'man' friend and we went to the drive-in and I was pretty private with him...orally. (the bad part was that I had worked there and if we had gotten caught, chances are it would have by someone I knew!) Fondest memories were going with my sisters on Sun afternoons when we were kids and the movie house was just in the next block. We went to the movies and were given just enough to pay for our tickets and each get a treat......we chose Sugar Daddy suckers because they lasted for so long. It was a real treat for us to get them to begin with.
