When a girlfriend and I were 16, we skipped school one afternoon to watch The League of Gentlemen movie. We chose that because we knew the cinema would be totally empty because the film sucked so hard and nobody in their right mind wanted to see it. Going to the movies with a girl as a teenager is always primarily to get to second base and not to watch a film, so within a few minutes of it starting, we were getting pretty hot and heavy.

Because it was the middle of the day, we walked out shame-faced, and sure enough, there in the lobby, was a screen showing the inside of the theater clear as day, and maybe 40 or so kids with their parents just giving us shit.
My girlfriend was pretty upset about it. We bought a bottle of vodka and spent the rest of the day drowning our sorrows.
