I was 13 and my friend's mom picked me up to drop us off at a movie. My mom said "you are NOT eating popcorn for dinner" and gave me tilapia in Tupperware. I opened it in the dark theater and it STANK of fish. "What's that smell" someone yelled. "Yeah what is that" I also yelled https://t.co/NLQrS7WUvU

This. The whole theatre audibly gasped, but the men next to me screamed and leapt fully out of their seats. pic.twitter.com/KZvAKTxUdS

I’ve had better audience reaction moments since — we should talk about Portals, someone write that down — but hearing a packed Toronto audience applaud the train/bus crash sequence in The Fugitive. I didn’t know cinema audiences could do that. An eye-opener. https://t.co/QxKJyYG9Tn

i went to see Antichrist with @Sarah_Kendall and when the fox said, in a human voice, 'Chaos Reigns', Sarah turned to me and whispered, 'that is so 'you'.' https://t.co/NFg0xy1ha0 pic.twitter.com/ywh3SYm3vE

Seeing Romeo + Juliet at age 16 in the Church Street theatre in Harvard Square and being struck with Leo mania during that Des’ree song fish tank scene so bad i was gonna die. Then immediately buying the CD soundtrack at Tower Records after. https://t.co/YvHOIChC9a

I went to see a movie, alone on a Sunday night, and I was the only person there.
When my phone rang, I answered it. Who was gonna check me, boo? https://t.co/4AeHRnOlrR

Age 15, went to see the Sixth Sense shortly after it came out. The lady in front of me was so startled when Mischa Barton reached out from under the bed and grabbed Haley Joel Osmont’s ankle that she launched all of her popcorn in the air 😂

For some people, the briefest of celebrity encounters made for lifelong memories.
2016 La La Land premiere at Telluride sitting by Carrie Fischer. She drops her glove at the end of the film. I picked it up & gave it back to her. She looks right at me and says "Thank you so much darling". She was gone 3 months later. A moment in her life… a moment of my life.

BOWFINGER. Seat next to us was reserved for an older gentleman who arrived right as it started. I spent the entire film (a masterpiece!) laughing my ass off. (I may have fallen out of my seat at one point.) Lights come up at end. Turns out I'd been sitting next to Frank Oz. https://t.co/05kQjkauMP

Not everybody took the question seriously – we think.
