For all you young people out there please note that it wasn't always like this.
When I was a teen I could go to the movies with friends and there would be no noise during the film other than a few quiet muffled gasps at shocking parts. It was actually quite jarring to go outside of the theater afterward because you forgot you were sitting in a room full of people.
It was quiet nice.
However, it seems like people nowadays treat movies like a spectator sport and like to talk to their friends and type on their phones which light up and distract anyone who is trying to watch the damned MOVIE.
