Ok so we went to The Panto last night which wasn't a cheap night out with the tickets costing £100 + for 4 of us.

We were sat 4 seats in with a family of 4 occupying the end 4.

The Father of other the family preceded to lift his DS aged about 10/11 over the seats (spare) to the row in front so he could get a better view and was now sat directly in front of my DP.

This child then spent the entire performance jumping up and down on the seat in front,shouting loudly for sweets,flapping arms,banding his head with his shoes which he'd taken off and generally distracting everyone around him. To give the father credit he did repeatedly tell the child to shut up /sit down and threaten him etc.

Although My experience of ASD is quite limited, I'm assuming the boy was on the Autistic spectrum and although the panto is a family performance and I expect to be disturbed by kids needing a wee,rustling sweets etc AIBU to be pissed off with our evening be ruined especially seeing the boy could have been seated on the end of the aisle where he would have disturbed others less ?

I have plenty of cat litter here three socks, bit soiled though

Popcorn in cinemas is hideously pricey

threesocksfullofchocs Sat 29-Dec-12 23:09:18

and the sweets, last time I went to the cinema I had to take out a bank loan

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 29-Dec-12 23:09:30

My mother once kicked a full bucket of popcorn over and through the air in the cinema. We had had an argument and she was flouncing out. I was mortified! blush

Amber, without wishing to sound like a bad film, there are plenty of us who will stand behind you, beside you, in front of you (without disrupting your view of course) or anywhere you want us o stand.

Because i believe that the twats are the minority.

threesocksfullofchocs Sat 29-Dec-12 23:10:19

wow now that would annoy me.
I bet it cost over a fiver

II managed to drop my popcorn last time I went to the cinema, bloody waste that was.

Alis that made me gigglegrin

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 29-Dec-12 23:11:56

What kungfu said.

The minority twats are fundamentally wrong. It makes me angry to see people say such wrong,hurtful and small minded things.

threesocksfullofchocs Sat 29-Dec-12 23:12:07

and now you have this new thing where you can't take your own stuff in

JakeBullet Sat 29-Dec-12 23:12:19

Echoing others about Kungfupanda's contributions to this thread, they have been fab.

JakeBullet Sat 29-Dec-12 23:12:59

Do they search bags now threesocks?

Jake best bit was the projector was having a funny moment so we were all sat in a completely silent cinema! The rest of the audience must have been both shocked and highly amused!

threesocksfullofchocs Sat 29-Dec-12 23:14:10

I don't think so.

You're probably right, even though it doesnt seem like it at the mo.

Glitterknickaz Sat 29-Dec-12 23:15:51

They just shout louder

5madthings Sat 29-Dec-12 23:16:05

Well I went to the cinema about two weeks ago and took sweets in in a bag and didn't have a problem. I bought the popcorn as an extra treat as it was ds3's bday and then bloody dropped it!

threesocksfullofchocs Sat 29-Dec-12 23:16:46

that is why bigots shout
