1 Comment on Is movie theater etiquette dead? The critic’s perspective

    Just last night I attended a Merle Haggard concert at Kingsbury Hall and I had a difficult time enjoying it because a couple of alcohol fueled men kept jumping up and whooping and hollering “We love you.” I am actually an usher there, but these patrons were not in my section. One person said to me, they are getting a little rowdy over there and I ventured over, but by the time I got there, they had quieted down. I appreciated your commentary because I wasn’t sure if I should say anything. They are patrons too and are just having a good time. Still, it is at the expense of everyone else. I too, am amazed at the lack of concern for others. I have watched ballet performances and graduations and they sound like a sporting event with people yelling out their names and screaming things at them. I miss the good ole days. I miss quiet respect.
