    Not ashamed but not often brought to tears in the cinema, more likely to happen at home with a drink or two and more relaxed in my comfort zones

    Having worked in a cinema and knowing what goes on some chairs kinda dampens any true engagement with the screen and moment

    I don't mind admitting I got a little teary eyed and choked at the end of Monster Calls.

    End of Toy Story 3 was quite a choker too, and Warrior. Creed too,
    Rocky with cancer was like hearing a family member had it.
    I've idolised him since I was about 3-4 so that REALLY got me.

    I remember the second time I watched Dark Knight Rises too, I'd already seen it but went again with the Mrs and didn't want to give anything away and I think because I was just trying to look normal, and the immense IMAX sound, the bit where
    Bruce / Batman "dies"
    really got me.

    Oh, and Man of Steel too when
    Jonathan dies
    also got my bottom lip wobbling a bit too.

    Come to think of it, it happens a lot to me :rotfl:

    Things never used to bother me until I had a son, then it was like a whole world of emotions was released and I get soppy at all sorts!

    I cant say I've cry in the cinema not unless when very young. I was expecting to when I went to see ET with my mates, as not only something sad can get me going something like a few things in Its A Wonderful Life gets me every time but I was the only one not to cry.
    I'm glad I didn't see The Elephant Man at the pictures or I would have in that one.

    Most of my crying at films has been with laughter. Kung Fu Hustle is the very best example of that. Since my cancer I have been much more in touch with my feminine side and am more inclined to cry at emotional stuff. I don't go to the cinema much so it hasn't happened there. I remember seeing Star Trek 2 with a mate of mine. He wept like a baby at the end but half the cinema audience was with him.

    Some films just connect with you on an unexplainable emotional level and Apollo 13 was the last time I felt like having a blub.

    The bit when Lovell's (Howard's) mother says "Are you afraid ? Don't be. If they could get a washing machine to fly, my Jimmy could land it"

    Sniff :(

    Oh I've cried with laughter (a bit!) at films now and then I think. Mainly at TV comedy though. That's different!

    Not sure I've ever cried in the cinema. Maybe when Optimus Prime died in 1986.

    Came close at the end of Rogue One.
    I saw it the day after the reading of Fisher's death and here she was on screen*. I swear everyone in the cinema took a sharp intake of breath, it was emotional.
    Nobody really talked when the movie was over, we left pretty much in silence. Hard to talk with a great big lump in your throat.

    At home, sure. Staying in space for one example, the end of Babylon 5 gets me every, single, time.

    * - Yes, CGI but it was enough for me and everyone else at the time.

    Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King - When Frodo boards the ship with the last of the Elves and Gandalf leaving his friends forever.

    Toy Story 3 - When Andy has one last play time with Woody and gang.

    My more emotional side came out when my best friend died at 16. I've never been able to hold a tear back since then. Also, having a child worsened this tenfold.

    To be honest, I like when films get you that emotionally involved. It shows the Director has done a great job of bringing you along for the ride.

    EDIT: forgot the thread title was crying in the cinema. I've never done this. Always keep the tears from home.

    We're living in a society that always judges and affects how we are percieved by others through no fault of anyone, it's just how we roll. society improves but always with a social stigma.

    Being someone who is weak enough to be affected by perception of others, I hide my tears :'(

    And I find myself hiding both sad and happy ones.

    UP breaks the record for me collapsing just five minutes into a movie!

    Nothing like a good blub in the cinema. "Oh Captain, my Captain" and I'm leaking like a sieve.

    Up really caught me by surprise, it's very well done how quickly it draws you in.

    Bridge to Terabithia is pretty sad and I have never seen the end of Marley and Me...

    Thankfully I never seen any of these films in the cinema so I was spared from crying like a little girl in public. I learnt my lesson from Titanic :thumbsup:

    I think I cried out of grief after seeing 'The Happening' at the cinema.

    Grief over £10 wasted and two hours of my life I'll never get back.
