Filmmaker Martin Scorsese is too short to go to the theatre because there is “always” someone taller blocking his view. He says he gets frustrated by “raucous” audience members.
Asked if he ever slips into public screenings of his movies, he said, “I don’t do that. People talk and move around a lot. I’m short and there’s always a big person in front of me. It’s the same with Broadway—I can’t go to a theatre. There’s someone in front of me, and I can’t see the stage or hear the show. I enjoy Imax as I get older. You go in, you can sit up in the back and you’re sort of looking up. Regular screenings, I have found the audiences becoming a bit more raucous than they used to be. But maybe it’s always like in the 1950s when we used to yell back at the screen. But it’s important to me to support films while they’re on the big screen. I just wait a while,” he said in an interview.
The Killers of the Flower Moon star Leonardo DiCaprio said that he rarely watches public screenings because of the attention he receives, though he is happy to do so if there’s a movie he wants to see and he will even stand in line to buy his own ticket. He said, “I generally see stuff at premieres.” Asked about the last film he bought a ticket for, he said, “I think it was Top Gun: Maverick. I do not recall. I saw both [Barbie and Oppenheimer] in the theatre.
