Forever ago I was told that movie curtesy was to remove the child from the theater so it won't ruin it for other people trying to watch the movie. Stateside...they had early matinees so parents could take their children to movies before bedtimes, so that it wouldn't ruin it for those that go to watch it late in the day. Movies on THIS base usually start at 6pm?? No way around it. Going to say...I took all four of my kids to see Kung Fu Panda 2 when it came out here. The first showing of it was super packed. Not just in line an hour before the movie started, but it was packed...so we waited for the 2nd showing of it that night.
Parents know how little ones can get. Unpredictable. They accept kids will be loud or mobile. As I waited in line, I saw kids wearing pajamas to view the movie, I saw little ones running around being loud. In the theater...it was the same. Kids were babbling, screaming, crying, and some were stuffing their faces full of popcorn and candy to keep themselves quiet. Others just fell asleep sometime in between.
Not everyone that went to see that movie were children or parents...but they expected the curtesy of being able to watch and enjoy the movie. Kind of puzzled by that. Okay, during the first part of Harry Potter...my 2 yr old decided to babble up a storm (he's always been able to sit through a movie quietly, but during that movie...LOUD) so hubby and I took turns being out of the theater with him so the other could watch the movie with the older kids. This was Kung Fu Panda 2...once again, my little one was a bit of a chatter box when he wasn't chowing down on sugar. He did manage to fall asleep during most of it, but there were other kids loud and attention did spin a few heads.
Would you have taken your little one out of the theater if they were being loud...when the entire theater had kids being loud? Would you have stayed and just accepted the noise? Not everyone cares to wait for the movie to be on DVD to watch it. Some people like watching it to see if it's even own worthy. I dunno, just wondering what your take on this is.

If everyone was being loud then I wouldn't worry if my kid was being a little chatty. Now if she was screaming and crying, I would take her out. I usually take my daughter in the evening to kid's movies because around here there aren't a lot of people (if any) in the theatre because she likes to ask a lot of questions.
