Here are some guidelines helpful
in achieving an experience
of absolute pleasure.
Have fun and do no harm. Do no harm to people (make-up or costume) or cause damage to the theater. Participation bags will be sold in the lobby. If you must bring a water gun, please shoot it up…and not in someone’s eye. Don’t aim water guns at anything which requires electricity. There, we had to say it.
Be Nice. Never make fun of someone for “dressing up” – especially if their costume or make-up is not exact. The point is that their heart is in it…and we’re all here to have fun, right?
Be Reasonable. Don’t get angry or jealous if someone else comes dressed as the same character. Remember that the movie and its characters are not your exclusive property.
Be Respectful. Respect the wishes of the theater and its management. Vandalism and the breaking of rules might not only lead to your ejection, but to the closing of the film. This would only be spoiling it for everyone.
Be Creative. If visitors from other theaters or areas come to visit, don’t try to “shout them down.” Respect the fact that they might yell different “lines”. Why you might even find some new ones more preferable to your own.
Don’t be a jerk. Participation bags will be sold in the lobby. Please refrain from throwing food (rice, toast, etc) in the theater. It’s all fun and games until there’s a rat infestation.
