Auditoria Services are proud to be a leading supplier of cinema seating and theatre seating to a number of well known venues across the UK. From the Sheffield Crucible, home to the World Snooker Championships to York Theatre we have carefully designed and fitted comfortable seating, perfect for audiences to relax and take in the show.
Despite the hard work that goes into the design and manufacture of our seating, we know that even if you are sitting comfortably, your viewing pleasure can be greatly ruined by the irritating habits of other people.
Whether it be at the cinema, the theatre, there’s guaranteed to be a minority who insist on ruining it for everyone else. Here are a few of the most common complaints from theatre and cinema goers:
Most common irritating audience habits
Inappropriate consumption of food and beverages
There are many ways to disturb your fellow cinema goers by the way you eat your food and drink your drink. The incredibly annoying rustling of sweet packets is an especially heinous crime, as is the incessant slurping of drinks as these people desperately try to get the last drop of their Fanta. The noisy munching of crisps is also reported as a much hated behaviour of regular cinema and theatre attendees.
Talking during the film
Unless it’s an emergency, there really is no need to be talking through the film or show you have gone to watch. A quiet whisper to your neighbour of “What’s he been in?” or a respectful “excuse me” as you head to the toilet can be forgiven. However, what’s really intolerable are those people who insist on providing the whole room with their usually less-than-insightful comments on proceedings. We didn’t ask for a director’s commentary, and you are not the director!
Possibly the most annoying trait some people have is to kick the back of your chair during the film or play. As manufacturers of theatre and cinema seating, we find this very annoying and we know that you hate it when your viewing enjoyment is ruined by someone who can’t keep their feet to themselves. We put a lot of effort into the design and comfort of our theatre seating but unfortunately, we can’t accounf for the size 10’s of the guy behind you.
Mobile phone offences
Probably the worst crime to commit as an audience member is the unnecessary use of your mobile phone. Whether it be trying to slyly check Facebook, or your phone going off at a crucial moment of the performance, mobile phone offences are deemed unforgivable by most spectators. Have you guys heard of aeroplane mode?
At least the theatre seating is good!
At Auditoria we hope your viewing experience isn’t tarnished by inconsiderate spectators, but if it is, you can take heart from the fact that our theatre seating and cinema seating is extremely comfortable and practical so at least it’s not your seat that ruins the show.
