Don't Talk in a Movie Theater
Zoe Mollner-Code of Conduct Assignment- 3A
-the movie theater etiquette-
how many times have you found a group of people completely silent?
There is no official day that marks when the concept of no talking during a movie was instated, however, for the sake of the assignment, I will credit the introduction of silent films as the day this concept was brought forth.
Silent films were produced from 1894- 1929, and because of the fact that these movies were silent, meaning that the actors could not convey concepts through words, the audience maintained silence in order to pay attention to the film.
As films and technology evolved, actors began to have more routes to convey emotions and concepts; now through words and their actions.
And as these movies developed to eventually reach the quality that they have today, the audience remained silent as they watched a world unknown to them be unveiled on the big screen.
as to why people remain silent for a movie, it comes down to a few main reasons; respect\ courtesy for those around them, and anticipation for the movie itself (to not miss any deatails)
