Crazy-ass Shit I Witnessed in Movie Theaters

List inspired by a comments section discussion I had with @troniks.
  1. ROBOCOP (1987; a second-run "Dollar Theater" in Lexington, KY)
    A little guy who looked like Eazy-E kept hollering at the screen. A much bigger guy in front of us turned around and yelled, "If you say one more word, I will kick your ass." The little guy fell silent. Onscreen, the evil corporate villain taunted Robocop: "You can't visit your wife. She's remarried. To a human being. What can you possibly give her that he can't?" The little guy quietly replied, "My robo-dick." The big guy heard it, jumped up and beat the shit out of him, right next to me.
  2. CAN'T REMEMBER THE MOVIE. MAYBE 1990, AT A DRIVE-IN IN NICHOLASVILLE, KY.
    Halfway through the movie, the screen went dark. A redneck employee came over the speakers and announced, "Ladies an' gentlemen. Someone has stolen Simba from the 'Lion King' display by the concession stand. We won't start the movie until Simba is returned." Everyone sat in the dark for 10 minutes. People started honking and cursing. The guy would just come back on the speakers and say, "Not 'til we get Simba back!" After 30 minutes he announced, "Ladies an' gentlemen. Simba has been returned."
  3. THE HUNTED (1995; AMC Theater on the Santa Monica Promenade)
    This is the incident @troniks and I were discussing. A Christopher Lambert action movie with one intense sequence, where ninjas massacre everyone on a train. As tension built, a guy in the front row - surrounded by plastic bags full of belongings - had a full-on meltdown, screaming and thrashing violently. Theater employees rushed in and subdued him. The whole thing was terrifying - yet it never occurred to me to get up and leave. God forbid I don't see the ENTIRE Christopher Lambert movie.
  4. BLOODSUCKING FREAKS (1996, Sunset 5 in West Hollywood)
    A midnight showing of this notorious 1970s grindhouse movie. The director, Joel M. Reed, spoke beforehand. Midway through his talk, porn star Ron Jeremy entered the theater. He wore a denim vest with no shirt underneath. Joel M. Reed asked, "Any questions from the audience?" Ron raised his hand and loudly asked "Yeah, what's the name of the picture?" Reed replied, "Bloodsucking Freaks." After a beat, Ron said, "OK." Perfectly acceptable movie for Ron Jeremy to walk into at random, I guess.
  5. SPLICE (2007, Chinese Theater in Hollywood)
    This Adrian Brody movie was some crazy-ass shit!
