Have you ever told someone to be quiet at the movie theatre?

I haven't been to the movies in quite awhile. I do like the movies but due to depression and being an introvert, I usually prefer to stay home and watch movies. I feel more comfortable. Plus it's cheaper. There have been a handful of occasions where people are talking loudly or being dramatic when something funny or scary happens. I'm usually not bothered that much about it. I guess it depends on my mood but more times than not, I'm not that bothered. But there have been some occasions where someone just won't shut up throughout the whole movie. Or are kicking the back of the seats as if it's empty when it isn't. I've never confronted anyone before. I have day dreamed about it while sitting there but I've never actually done it. Have you ever told anyone to be quiet in a movie theatre before? What happened? How did they respond? I want popcorn now.

@VivaLaDani13 I don't like to crane my neck so the back is usually the best. However, depending on the theater, you have to deal with people constantly opening the door. I went to a small theater in a small town here and the theater wasn't always a theater, so the theater rooms are small, the chairs uncomfy, and the door is distracting when people keep leaving and coming. However, it's cheaper, even for newer movies. I watched the second part of the newest IT

I am like you, I would rather stay home to watch a movie because it is more comfortable (and cheaper). But I have been to a handful of movies in the theatre. I never confronted anyone about it, but I do remember sometimes that people were being obnoxious during a film.
its a not good thing which they doing in theater as they disturb others too. i never in that condition as most of the time i have seen discipline here while went to watch a movie. its good to say them as they cross their limit and definitley others also support as they disturb them too. generally we not like to bother some things as its just a permanent and we dont know how they are and who they are.
I haven't been to theatres much. I can count on one hand and still have fingers left. I do remember that each time there was people disturbing others. The first time men were whistling crudely at the actress during a song and second time went with fellow school kids and you know kids can't sit still and silent for long. I don't think I would be bothered to tell them to be quiet usually but since I am also spontaneous, I may tell them to shut up.

I have done so in the theatre but not in the cinema. Like you I prefer to watch something in the comfort of my own home rather than in a noisy cold uncomfortable theatre. It was on Broadway in New York I went to see Phantom of the opera and a woman sitting next to me drove me crazy. Rustling with sweets, crisps fidgeting and talking. In the end I turned to her and said for goodness sake sit still woman or leave the theatre. At the interval she changed places with her husband who sat nice and still and quietly!
