As people who have spent enough time in movie theaters throughout their lives to be considered “unreasonable” by the layman, the CoS Film staff has seen a lot over the years. We’ve seen the highs of human unity, an entire room of strangers moved to laughter or tears by a perfectly executed punchline or cruel twist. We’ve also seen the lows, from obnoxious movie talkers of all ages to fornication to arrests. As one of the truly quintessential public meeting places of modern society, the cinema draws everybody and forces them to politely sit together for a while. Sometimes that works out, oftentimes it doesn’t, but the core sentiment of unity remains intact.
In celebration of the screening experience, and with the summer movie season and its packed, rowdy crowds drawing nigh, the staff would like to share some of its best, most formative, sometimes hilarious, occasionally awkward viewing stories with you. After all, we’ve all had one. So be sure to let us know your most memorable moviegoing experience in the comments section below.
