12 rules all Irish people need to follow at the cinema

For the sake of everybody else, PLEASE.

1. If the screen is empty, don’t even think about sitting beside someone else

2. Actually, just leave them the whole row

3. And if you were assigned a seat in that row, well, find another

You’re not bound by law to sit in your assigned seat, especially on quiet days. Give everyone some SPACE.

4. Leave smelly, dinner-like foods at home

That includes cinema nachos and hot dogs, BTW. They taste like crap anyway.

5. Seats are not for feet

Don’t kick or prod the seat in front of you with your foot. Don’t be that person.

6. And if you get lost, try and catch up on your own

8. And don’t use it during the film

9. But if you have to, be discreet about it

Do it under a jacket or something. But only if it’s absolutely essential.

10. Your coat doesn’t deserve a seat of its own

No matter how lovely you think it is.

11. If you’ve a tiny bladder, sit near the outside
