Whenever I go to the movie theater I usually stop into the restroom before I go in to the theater. There have been times though when I've needed to use the restroom while the movie was playing. If the movie is really good I'll sit there and wait until it is over to use the restroom. I don't want to miss any of the movie. Do you get up in the middle of a movie to use the restroom?

That is a good one.It is a problem with many of us.We just do not felling like rushing to the rest room in the middle of an interesting movie.I just take the precaution of emptying my bladder before I go inside the theater.

Plus I think it annoys people when you have to walk past a row of people to get out of the isle.

I like to go before the movie, or after. Those tickets are expensive. I want to get my monies worth. Not spend time in a stall. The only times in recent memory that I got up in the middle of a show was while I was pregnant. And I don't think that anyone can fault me there!

Hi there Shar. I would not get up to go to the bathroom during a movie that i paid for - it doesn't feel right. I go before as well, and i will wait to the end of the movie to go again if i really need to as I too don't want to miss the movie that i paid for.

That's how I feel. It costs enough money just to go see the movie. Wouldn't want to waste it.

You're right about that. We can't rewind the movie or put it on pause.

I usually try to go to the rest room before the start of the movie, I don't like having to leave my seat in the middle of the movie because 1. I don't like missing any part of the movie too and 2. its kinda creepy when I had to go in the middle of the show and no body else is in the rest room with me... who knows what can happen there while I am alone and the sounds of the movie is really loud...

Only few times I have gone to the theater but I always surely will go in the restroom even in the middle of a movie. Before the movie starts, I make it a habit to go to the comfort room first but I`m one of those who seems to fill their bladder fast, so I have to go even if the movie is so interesting. Then, after the movie finishes, I line up to use the comfort room. I drink beverages a lot, so I have to empty my bladder often. Otherwise, I`ll be sick. So, I`m happy with the way things are going-my system works thoroughly in eliminating waste!!!

I was actually just thinking about this. I usually avoid going out of the theater mid-movie at all costs. Usually the "feeling" goes away, if I hold it long enough. But the other day, I saw "Knowing", and I chugged a Nos before going in the theater, and that stuff just shoots through me, so I had to go use the restroom in the middle off the movie. But I hated it! I came back, and I had no idea what was going on. Some people just leave and come back like 20 times in one movie, but I hate going once.

I only get up if I really need to. I will also go before the movie even if I don't really have to go just because I don't want to have to get up and miss part of the movie.

I try my hardest not to unless someones there to come with me. Not in fear of missing parts of the movie but because I have a horrible sense of direction! I'm always afraid of not finding where my seat is when I get back. I definitly don't wanna be that person trying quietly to call out someones name trying to figure out where to go!

HI Shar19.. I go to the bathroom in the middle of a movie if I badly need to. Same as you do, I go to the bathroom first before I sit inside the moviehouse. I also try to minimize my fluid intake since it makes me want to pee over and over again which is so uncomfortable and irritating especially if the movie is so damn good.

I'll try to sit still if the movie is really attractive until to the end.If it's boring maybe I'll go to the restroom several times.

i always go to the bathroom before a movie and as much as possible avoid drinking too much soda or water during the movie. However, there are times wherein in the middle of the movie i needed a bathroom break. I don't hold it in, i mean i really can't so i have no choice but go to the restroom.
