A bunch of good movies are going to be released this month, plus the Metro Manila Film Festival is also happening soon. This means most of us are heading to the cinemas to catch a movie or two with our loved ones. But before you go out of the house or have your movie tickets reserved, read this guide first so you know how to be the best movie theater-goer, ever. You don't want to be a major source of annoyance for the movie-loving population, do you? DON'T BE THAT PERSON.

  1. Get in before the movie starts. Be punctual. Aside from the fact that it will be difficult for you to locate your seats because the lights will be turned off when the movie starts, you'll also block and disturb the people who are already settled in their seats from staying focused on what's onscreen.

  2. Go to the restroom before they start playing the movie. Do this especially when you're going to watch a movie that's three hours long. That way you won't disturb people because you want to stand up and make noise by repeatedly saying, "Excuse me" just to pass by.

  3. Stay in your assigned seats. Some cinemas allow you to reserve seats. Stay in the seat you were assigned to and double check your tix before claiming that space your own.

  4. Turn off your phones or switch to silent mode. The background light of your phone's going to be super distracting, not to mention blinding because the room is dark. Stop using it while you're inside the theater.

  5. Stop making noise or doing something else. You didn't go to the cinema to discuss about the movie or to make plans with your friends on where to eat after the movie ends, did you? So zip it and talk once the film's over.

  6. Don't spoil the movie or make a running commentary. So you've read the book or you already have a hint about how it's going to end or you watched it days ago with another party, but we don't want to hear your comments. We just want to enjoy the movie. Save your comments for your social media and blog posts, thank you very much.

  7. Eat quietly and keep your trash within your area. One, it's annoying (and gross?) to hear you  noisily chewing your food. Two, you have your space, we have ours. Stick to yours.

  8. Do not hit or kick the seat in front of you. Common sense. You don't want someone to keep hitting yours, right?

  9. Do not bring kids to watch movies that aren't appropriate for them. If the movie is meant for teens or for adults, why should you bring little children inside? Aside from disturbing images and language, kids tend to get bored and end up feeling uneasy then whining then crying inside the cinema. Totes going to ruin all the fun for us who just want to enjoy the film.

  10. Do not text or answer a call. Well, unless it's an emergency, then we can understand. But if it's not, it's just annoying. What are you in the movie house for anyway? Texting? Do that somewhere else.
