Before I formulate the idea let me just say that I'm aware of the nature of the forum of which I'm asking opinions of social appropriateness of.

So, you're at the movies, halfway through the movie you have to go buy popcorn/use the bathroom/answer an important call and you're not one of those jerks who talks in the phone during the movie gathering a torrent of looks from angry moviewatchers so you go outside/other. Your seat is in the middle of the row.

Now, to the question. How do you exit/go back to your seat? Your front facing the people sitting in the same row as yours, or have your back facing them? Which is more appropriate? And tell me why.

If you don't have either front/back facing them then I don't care you damn fencesitter. Just pretend you have to choose. I want polarized pollresults.

I'd go with back facing them.

Edit: I'm a male.

I'm sure the results of this will be quite interesting to you, but what exactly made you ask this?

I always feel awkward going frontways incase I brush against their knee, and its not so bad if it is your ass... So I don't face them.

Depends how interesting the part of the movie is. and how interesting the front or back of your shirt is. But lets say its the best part, and you just have a blank shirt. Face them, that way both of you miss the scene. In other words, you're less of an asshole because you have to miss the movie as much as they do.

edit: this is not what i do. this is "socially appropriate" in my mind. Most of the time i purposely mosey and watch the movie.

I have my front facing. Don't know why. Maybe in case er... something happens. I'm quite proud of my protruding crotch area too.

Front facing them and I am male.

I also leave my fly down.

I also don't wear underwear.

I also have a huge cock.

And it's always erect.

I wouldn' leave to get popcorn or to take a piss. I'm a man, I do it before the film starts.

But, I suppose it's the ass they'll be getting.

Male, I walk with my face to them, so I can make silly faces and make them choke on their popcorn. Who gives a stuff about the movie? It's probably just Transformers anyway.
#21
Have my back facing them. Don't want my penis in some guys face.

And male
#22
I usually have my back facing them, so that in case I trip and embarrass myself, my face wont land in their lap.

Male btw.

I go with my back towards them so you don't have look in their eyes and have an awkward moment. Also, it looks like I'm presenting, which is always a good thing.

Back. That way I can keep watching the movie. Plus, I don't have to see the guy in the overcoat fapping.

Back facing them, female.

We always get seats near the end of the rows, so it isn't too much of an issue.

Back facing the person.

Both feel rude/semi-uncomfortable, but at least I don't have my **** being jammed into their face. I mean, what if you slip on something? You're going to be crotch deep into some poor person's face and/or chest.

That's beyond embarassing. So, yeah, I stick to facing the screen. More balance, and less likely to embarass myself in the process.

Back facing them, but I usually give a conciliatory glance as I approach.


Either that or hopping directly over the rows in front of me while yelling loudly. Depends on how drunk I am.

Plus, it's a good tactical position to be in when you let loose the revenge fart in the face of the bitch who just would not shut up.

Front facing them, I don't know why but I always do this (I think I do it so I can watch the moves of other people, like if someone would get up when I'm passing). But most of the time we get places at the end of the row anyway.

I crawl, thus not interrupting their viewing experience.

I'm also being quite serious. I spend most of my time with my hands in my arm pits trying to sweat so that I don't need the bathroom. Return of the King was an ordeal and a half.
