Every couple of weeks there come a group of lackluster releases, at least when it comes to style. This weekend has no car chases or tuxedos or inspirations for cocktails. Ghost Town? Eh. Lakeview Terrace? No thanks. So sitting here, past my normal deadline, thinking, I came up with the mildly “sell-out” idea of just talking about what to wear when going to the movies. Now, if you’re on a date, you might want to spruce it up, but for your general theater experience, this’ll do. To spice things up just a little bit, I’ve included a picture to go with each boring category. Below, see if you can identify: A) What movie it’s from and B) What character/actor is wearing it.

Shorts or Pants?

Ah the classic question with a simple answer – weather appropriate. If it’s a bit chilly outside, you might just want to opt for pants. The odds of the theater being really warm are generally pretty low. If it’s broiling outside, shorts all the way. If you’re someone who gets cold easily, opt for jeans.

Shirt Style

Comfort is the most important thing when hunkering down for a two hour stretch. You don’t want to be uncomfortable and no one wants to see you shifting around in your seat, rolling up your sleeves, or tugging at anything. Generally, a t-shirt will do you just fine, unless its freezing outside. I find myself often being rather warm all the time, so if its cold outside, I’ll take a lightweight jacket or sweatshirt, but remove it before the movie starts.

Most Importantly

Shoes shoes shoes. If your shoes aren’t comfortable, you aren’t. A good, relaxing pair of sneakers are your best bet every time. Don’t be the guy who takes his shoes off. Let’s be honest, that’s kind of weird, a little gross, and maybe a bit rank. Don’t do it.

So there it is. An easy little game for a breezy little article.

What’s your normal theater going attire?
