    I'm currently sitting in the movie theatre awaiting "J.Edgar" to begin, if anyone is aware it's a 2 hour 15 minute movie and I would not handle it too well without some Nicotine. THANK YOU PV ;)....but I'm sitting here wondering, has anyone ever run into any bad experiences vaping in a movie theatre?

    I personally will never vape inside of a movie theater. Sure it's not real smoke and doesn't smell and all that good business, but it is still a thick vapor that you're shooting into the air that, for a moment, can block someones view of the screen with a cloud of vapor. People will think you're smoking and they'll be pissed. Hope they don't get pissed enough to tell someone and get you thrown out of the theater.

    I never received an official answer, but I did inquire about AMC/Regal's stance on e-cigarettes. Amy Miles, CEO- AMC/Regal, inc., has been a client of the company I worked for. As we were discussing some of the services I inquired about usage. She was unaware of e-cigs' existence. Her immediate concerns were whether the e-cigs light-up, as it would be a distraction to other guests. The other concern was the cloud. I gave her q uick FYI regarding e-cigs and hope for the best.

    I have vaped in a movie theatre, although I exhaled through my nose and into my shirt. No LED, so no visual distraction. Vape on. Just be considerate.

    I plan on vaping next time I go to the theater, very discreetly though, with no vapor clouds.

    I've tried vaping in a theater but I stopped after a few drags due to the sound of my carto.
    I was, iirc, using a dual coil lr carto with a liquinator.
    Its does give some popping sounds (at times) and the "draw" sound was too loud for my liking.
    I didn't wanna disturb my neighbours so I stopped. Was probably a quiet moment in the movie anyway haha

    A "quiet" carto would have been fine :)

    I've been doing this regularly for almost 3 years. Sitting in or towards the back, obscuring the LED, holding it in an extra couple seconds and exhaling forcefully towards my lap. No problems yet. Except I think it has slightly irritated people I've been with who know exactly what I'm doing (like trying to top up a cart in the dark) and find it distracting. In the future, if I remember, I'll have a 510-T with a pen-cap over the LED so they're not bothered. The LED button on an eGo is a bit difficult to conceal in total darkness.

    Whenever I vape in the movies, I either stealth vape or I do the same thing DougieStyle and exhale into my jacket. Unless of course we sit in the very back, then there's really no worries. I try to be as aware of other people as I can and would rather avoid the "talk" of what it is, why I can "smoke" it inside, etc.

    I vape in the theaters here where I live. I always sit far in the back and I only vape 100% PG juice so there is not as much vapor. I don't chainvape or anything but I usually will blow the vape into my jacked or tuck my shirt over my mouth. I don't want to get vapor up near the camera box.

    I do it every time I got to a movie and have never had a bad experience. I do stealth vape though.

    Stealth vaper here, too. Just hold in as long as possible, exhale very slowly into shirt sleeve. Keeps me happy for a 2-1/2 hour movie.

    With peoples non stop yacking and cell phones lighting the place up.
    Vaping is one of lest disrupting things to do in a theater.
    One time a guy in the row ahead of me was watching another movie on his phone. I couldn't believe it.

    I vape in theaters all the time, regardless of where I'm sitting, I just blow vape down, not up, no one is bothered.
    btw, cellphones > Vape for annoyance, i will tolerate a temp cloud of vape that goes up, i wont tolerate the guy sitting in a row next to mine telling his friend via cell phone about the movie he's watching.

    I've been having good luck vaping at the movie theaters near me.

    During "Hunger Games" on the opening night in a packed theater, I only got noticed when I got a bit careless and let out a big plume of smoke without a double inhale. Even that wasn't that bad, I was just embarassed when a woman behind me said "What?!? Is he smoking something?!?", after which point I was more discreet.

    This past week, I went to see "21 Jump Street" with my nephew, and specifically inquired of the person at the counter what the AMC policy on e-cigs was.

    He asked his manager then stated "We don't have any official policy, but they aren't allowed [pe se. If someone gets upset, we'll kick you out".

    Pretty good experience, and the movie wasn't, honestly, as terrible as I'd expected, which was an added bonus.

    Me too:) Using 100% PG juice, hold for a beat on the inhale and no vapor issue. Prolly shouldn't use one of the lighted-end PV's though. They look like a beacon in the movie theatre - "Look everyone, I'm Vaping!". :facepalm:

    I have stealth vaped in movie theaters plenty of times. It is super easy to cover the eGo button with your thumb or slide the PV down a hoodie sleeve.

    I vape in the movies. I don't exhale into my jacket, etc., but I exhale discreetly, a little bit at a time.
    I so the same on buses.

    I don't vape at the movies because I think the vapor could be irritating to other patrons. However, I don't see a problem if you are sitting in the back row or stealth vaping. That's way less annoying than cell phone usage or unruly children.
