Fan of film who saw the Spider-Man 2 movie and was interrupted by her baby’s crying. The child cried so much that it made his viewing experience impossible. Even parents agreed.

  • One man who lives in America has asked for the banning of babies from American cinemas
  • Reddit user, claiming that a crying baby had ruined Spider-Man’s viewing experience 
  • A majority of parents agree that it is inappropriate for young children to view films.  

The viewing experience of a man at the cinema disrupted when he was interrupted by crying children has called on movie theatres not to allow parents to bring their kids to blockbuster screenings.

Reddit: The unnamed US citizen explained to Reddit that he was only a few rows away from the couple who had come to the cinema to view the latest Spider-Man film with their child.

According to him, the child made a lot of noises throughout the movie and his mother only left the screening after five minutes.

Surprisingly, the man suggested that cinemas ban infants. While parents agreed that it was inappropriate for young children to be brought into cinemas, others claimed that teenagers could cause disruption when they are watching films.

The discussion began after a man explained that a couple ruined his viewing of the new Spider-Man movie by not taking their crying baby out of the screening

After a man said that his view of Spider-Man 2 was ruined by a couple who left their baby crying outside, the discussion started. 

The UK offers many screenings that are free of charge, including soft lighting, low volume, and movement in the auditorium.

The films shown in the movie are generally not rated beyond U orPG. Spider-Man: No Way Home is an example of this. 

According to him, parents shouldn’t go to the cinema with their children if they can’t find babysitters.

He wrote, “Just got back to see the Spider-Man movie (no spoilers as it was great) and six seats ahead was a mom and dad who were there with their baby. 

The baby was upsetting the film by screaming at every scene, making it difficult to watch. The mother took the baby out only once after it had been shrieking for five  straight minutes, despite it constantly making noise for about 1/3 of the movie, and once she came back it started to work itself up again. 

‘I don’t understand why you can’t get a baby sitter for your baby for the three hours you’re going to be at the movies, but instead have to bring the baby to the theaters and actively make everyone’s viewing experience worse. I

‘I don’t mind babies in other settings, but a f****** movie??? Even if it’s a noisy, action-packed movie! Don’t be silly! Theatres should ban children.

Most of the responses to this post said that parents should not take their child to the movies.

One reader wrote, “Why would parents allow their child to see a movie theater with loud talking, fighting, and god knows what else?” A baby could be scared.  

A flood of responses to the post agreed babies and young children shouldn't be allowed to go to the cinema

The post received a flood of replies. It was agreed that children younger than 5 years old shouldn’t go to the movie theatres. 

‘Not only is it not cool for the baby, it’s just downright rude and ‘we don’t give a s*** about anyone but us) kind of vibe. These parents need to take their baby to the movie theater during mom and toddler times. But they won’t go because they are too busy to hear. They didn’t have to ask me. 

One said, “Some people might highly disagree with me but I’m a mom of three.” A movie theater should not be a place for children under five years of age. You should also consider how expensive it is.

“People would rather go to the movies alone and not be disturbed by crying babies/kids.” 

One parent defended parents taking their children along, writing that it was more acceptable if there is a film for children. However, if the child keeps screaming and crying parents need to take them out of sight until they calm down. 

‘Honestly. The baby is better than the teens. The baby can’t resist it. Parent are the a******. The baby. What about teenagers? They know how to f****** behave. My friend and I used to go out for movie nights. Sure we were rowdy outside of the theatre and s*** like that, but we watched our movies and cleaned up after ourselves,’ another wrote.

Other responses to the post admitted they expect children screaming and crying during films aimed at kids
