I’m in love with my A-List subscription, but I wish there was an A+ List where only “good” movie watchers were permitted in and were actively monitored for disqualifying behaviors. The last movie I went to was Hobbs & Shaw, and while it wasn’t a great film, it was still made less great with the loud and obnoxious behavior of the audience. At one point, someone pulled out a full on flash light to search for something in their purse, about an hour into the film.
1 – no food or drink. you can’t be trusted to not throw the food all over the place, leave your trash behind, or sound like a badger eating it’s last meal.
2 – if you’re coughing or sniffling, you’ll need to stay home with your cold or flue
3 – no on under the age of 18, and even then, have a probationary period.
4 – no showing up 20 minutes late. if you’re not there by the time the first trailer starts, suck it up and go to another showing
