Imelda Staunton has recently expressed her views on cinemagoers who consume crunchy snacks whilst watching a film at the cinema.
The 64-year-old actress doesn’t want anyone to ruin her movie-watching experience so will always warn fellow cinemagoers not to even think about opening their delicious packs of crunchy snacks.
She told Radio Times: “A bloke came in with a big packet of Doritos and I just said to him, ‘What are you doing? You can’t eat those. You either eat them now before the film or afterwards.’”
“I don’t know why people can’t engage in just one thing,” she said. “I don’t understand this obsession with having to eat or drink something at every moment of the day.”
Imelda has even gone so far as to criticise the venues who sell crunchy food and use plastic cups to add to unnecessary noise.
What are your views? Do you find the consumption of crunchy snacks distracting? Do you consider rustling packaging if you buy a cinema snack? Do you eat your snacks quickly during the adverts and trailers to avoid disturbing others? Or is munching your way through a movie part of your cinema experience?
