Recently, a guy named Mike Ginn tweeted "the thing I miss most about movie theaters is overhearing someone say the dumbest fu*king thing I’ve ever heard before the previews start," it surely rang a bell to many.

Then, people started sharing the funny things they overheard in cinema theaters, here are some good ones:
Went to go see the hobbit and an old couple was sitting in front of me who had clearly never seen LoTR. Sméagol came on the screen and the husband goes “awe who’s this little fella?” I’ll never forget it

During a screening of the Woman in Black, there's a scene where the camera is slowly creeping on Daniel Radcliffe's character. Someone yells "GET YER WAND OUT HARRY!" Everyone collectively pissed themselves. 😂😂

I still remember seeing Kung Fu Hustle in theaters and 20 minutes into the movie 2 rednecks stood up and said out loud "We didn't come to a theater in AMERICA to have to read!" Everyone stared at them as they left and we all laughed at them afterwards.

My wife and I went to see Fast and Furious 27 or whatever, with no context, and about halfway through the movie, The Rock and Vin Diesel had a scene together and she audibly said "Those are two different people?"

My mother and I went to see Sideways. There were two older women in front of us. Right before the lights went down, one leaned over to the other and said “I hope there aren’t too many toilets in this one.”
I still want to know what film she was referring to.

I miss my husband asking the lady 2 rows behind us who answered her phone & started a conversation during a movie, "Are you serious?!" Then telling her to hang up or leave. Similar to the time he told the teen playing on her phone that she was not in her living room....

I went to see 127 hours at the cinema. Part way through a lady in the row behind me said "I hope he's not going to be stuck behind that rock for the whole film".

I used to work at a movie theatre and a lady came in who went nuts at me because I wouldn't let her kids into The Passion of the Christ. It was an 18 movie. I sat there explaining it as politely as I could, trying not to roll my eyes as she yelled "BUT IT'S JESUS!"

Opening night of Kill Bill, starts with black screen and female voice panting, a woman behind me shouts "I'll have what she is having!" just before the image of Umma beaten, swollen and bloody is revealed and everyone in the cinema laughed at her as she muttered "nevermind."

Went to see Love, Simon and a trailer for Mamma Mia 2: Here We Go Again played. When Cher made her appearance on screen, a teenage girl in front of me turned to her friend and said “oh my god I love Madonna!”.

Warriors descend from the horse’s belly in Troy. Half-whispering voice in the back: ”I KNEW IT!”
— Karin Gellman (@karingellman) August 30, 2020
Quiet part in the movie. Voice from the back shouts:
“Is there a doctor in the house, I need a Doctor, is there a doctor in the house?”
Voice from down the front
“Yes, I'm a doctor”
Voice from the back:
“sh*t film, isn't it?”
Cinema cracks up laughing....

At the start of Aquaman the WB logo with water over it. The guy next to me turns to his date and says "ooooooh, because its Aquaman"
