started out as a way to vent the repeated frustration created from
explaining why you don't place your chewing gum on the seat backs
and talk out loud on your cell phone while the movie is showing.
I was genuinely surprised to find so little official information
on move etiquette. There are plenty of pages providing opinions
so it came as a "shoe-in" to create this site while the
domain name MovieManners.com was still available.
of this information comes from looking over Emily Post and Amy Vanderbilt's
application to manners at the movie theater. Other topics come from
gleaning established websites with a common sense use of what would
best suite the masses.
taking a no nonsense approach to the subject I hope to provide a
central location to connect for information on proper theater
etiquette. As always, your opinions are welcome.
a webmaster for more than thirteen years and for the past several
months I've enjoyed working weekends in a college theater running
the 35-mm projector. It's been a blast watching everyone else make
messes of themselves and the floor all the while providing fodder
for this website.
