Question: How Do You Handle Theater Rudeness?

Full column here

Of course, the problem of parents at the movies with noisy kids pretty much ended when home video players and rental movies came into existence. Today, parents of little howlers and talkers can watch relatively current movies at home. They can even stop the movie when the child is talking or crying. However, that is not a practical solution when bringing a child to a movie theater and sitting down among a couple hundred other patrons. When the child the other night started jabbering and fussing, no one considered turning off the movie until the yelps and chatter ceased. Unfortunately, the parents didn’t think of doing anything either. The child — probably about 18 months — jabbered on and on, all through the movie, from beginning to end — Bill Hall/Lewiston Tribune.

Question: What do you do when someone is making noise while you’re trying to watch a movie at a movie theater?
