List Rules Upvote every node that evokes the midnight movie experience.
Going to a midnight movie generally makes you the kind of crazy movie fan that’s a cut above the average Joes who show up at a reasonable hour after work on a weeknight. Those people sleep well, are fresh for work all the time, and don’t care if people spoil the ending to a movie they’ll probably only half enjoy anyway. People who go to midnight movies, though, are the kind of people who go to the theater with a passion. They’re part of a culture of people who will shush a baby, ask a tester to put their phone away, and will have the strongest opinion on the Internet about any movie they’re watching.
But if you’re one of those people, one of those dedicated cinephiles that sacrifices their next day, one of those particularly ornery nerds, then this list is for you. At at midnight you can avoid the two worst things imaginable at the cinema: babies and spoilers, the two most common movie-killers. Additionally, there's a kind of respect in taking the time to stay up that late, and on a proactive side, you spend the next day on the Internet without feeling like you're navigating a giant mine field. And if you’ve done it at least once, some of these will resonate with you, and if you do it regularly, this list is pretty much a bullet-pointed version of your life.
