[quote="ninearms"]People like you and JP ruin the hard work of cinematographers, composers and sound designers everywhere. You should be ashamed.

When designing audio for the cinema you take into account the ambient noise, which tends to be whispers and sweetie wrappers.

Without this baseline, the silence in the movie is TOO SILENT.

LOL .. hilarious thread. So my job is designing those sounds for film, so I think I'm qualified to talk about this. Film sound is about dynamic.. the high and the lows. I've never changed my sound editing, or spoken to others who have changed theirs, to compensate for a noisy audience. I don't reckon people should be silent, it is a communal activity and so lets commune!

Having said that, when there's a lovely quiet section, with subtle atmos layers to juxtapose against the impending explosion mayhem, I don't really want to hear some bloke talking to his missus, or someone rustling around incessantly in a bag of crisps. I reckon if you eat and talk, just do it with some consideration and we'll all enjoy the film!

BTW - I never buy any shit from the cinemas, it's all ridiculously priced and none of it is vegan.

ahahhahaha. if you don't like 'talkers' in the cinema you would hate me - i scream in tense bits and laugh loudly at inappropriate times. i tend to save it for really crappy blockbuster films though ... and if it's a big cinema and an absorbing film no one notices the noise anyway. and if you're not absorbed then its a crap movie and not worth seeing anyway.

i don't tend to eat in the cinema (unless someone else has bought popcorn) but i do like a good coffee...

Half the fun is surely smuggling food into a cinema?
In my youth we used to smuggle beers and vodka into the cinema. Nothing like opening an ice cold beer during the opening scene, the sound of the can cracking open is in itself almost satisfaction enough.

The last movie I smuggled a small carton of chocolate soya milk and slab of chocolate in, then ate the large popcorn and coke I was "sharing" with the lady.

Must be a perk of being such a big, scary lookin mofo.

I'm with the pro-food crowd though, half the challenge is seeing how much food/grog you can stuff into your pockets / girlfriends handbag.

Can't you get unbuttered popcorn at cinema candy bars in the UK?

stupid rule, but not too surprising. fortunately this is not the case here, and there are tons of candy shops surrounding every cinema here.

another interesting thing is that the buttered popcorn served in the cinemas here is vegan :shock:

I also hate when people make noise during a movie, but that is probably not a surprise for anyone :)

I typically don't eat during the movies--except at the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge, MA. They have nutritional yeast and make the popcorn without butter unless you ask for it. In short, very vegan friendly. :)

- a litre of orange juice
- bag of crisps
- 100g of roasted cashew nuts
- purefit protein bar
- 4 rasberry doughnuts
- couple sweets, but only a couple...


Now I know why you liked that movie... :P

Im not so much into the stuff they offer at cinemas and I cant think so long into the future as to bring something myself.
(I think its something from the old days, that youre not allowed to bring food. Nowadays its no problem)

So naturally the best food is at home-movies:
Erdinger Alkoholfrei and Chips.

Popcorn ftw, like Frederik said they are Vegan in most Swedish movie theaters :D , the biggest question IMO is always the sodas though, and more precisely the volume of the sodas.. And how well you planned your toilet break before the movie... :wink:

I like the kind of movie visits when people have brought glowing light sabers and wave them around during the fight scenes.. :D rather have a bit of ambiance than quiet for sure!!

book of eli tonight (crap) apple i had on me.

for avatar at imax they gave "free" large coke and popcorn and the popcorn is plain out of the machine, they charge extra for butter and they didnt have salt so it was seemingly vegan!

And the other day for T4 - nachos!

I watch a lot of movies atm...

[quote="JP"]i think people like ninearms and konstantin should be banned from posting this thread, akin to people who preach abstenance on a good sex thread.
