Today as more and more reports, whispers, and rumors spread, the world is still waiting for the final resolution of one crucial, global storyline…”Avengers: Endgame.”
One week stands between us and part two of the gut punch that was “Avengers: Infinity War.” And given that the film is set to run more than three hours (and people are being crabby about it), I thought it only right to start prepping everyone for the long sit ahead.
So, pull up a chair, it’s time to talk movie etiquette…
First things first, plan your restroom trips accordingly. I know you can only do so much when nature calls there’s only so much you can do, but do your best. So, stop hydrating now. Sacrifices must be made. But seriously, if you do have to take a trip to the lou mid-movie, be quick, be quiet, be courteous. Okay?
And also bring food. You’re going to get hungry. You’re going to annoy your theater mates if you get up mid-movie for a popcorn run. Just get the food, you’re going to want it.
Up next — Know your audience. Yes, the one you’ll be a part of. Why? You don’t want to be the one person in the room who’s shouting at the screen. No one wants to be that person. However, you may be amongst a whole room of screen shouters (not my speed, but if that’s your jam, you do you). Ultimately, just remember that everyone is here to see the movie, not three hours of your blow-by-blow reactions. So read the room.
Finally, and I cannot stress this enough, do not spoil the fun for those after you. This is a spoiler-free zone.
Now go forth, armed with your common decency and the manners to make your parents proud and sit like a champ.
