7 Tips For Managing Your Movie Theater Cry Fest

When it comes to movies, I’m a crying machine. No matter what I head to the theater to see, I almost always get really emotionally invested and start crying — sad movies, romantic movies, even animated children’s movies. I took the kids I was babysitting once to see Wall-E and the tears just kept streaming down my face.

I’m finally seeing Les Misérables tonight and I know I am going to be a big crying mess. Every time I Dreamed A Dream starts playing on my iPod, cue the waterworks. When I see the movie’s trailer on TV, I can feel my lip start trembling and the tears ready to start falling.

To be clear, I’m not at all embarrassed about my movie crying — a lot of time it just feels really good to get all those emotions out — but I have picked up a few tips and tricks along the way to keep my PDC (that’s public display of crying) a little more under control. Winter break is an awesome time to catch up on all the movies in the theaters, so here are my seven tips if you want to get a good cry on at the movies.

Are you planning on seeing any movies over winter break? Do you cry really easily at the movies? What movie or movie scene always makes you cry? Tell us in the comments!

    I wish I would’ve read this a day earlier! When I saw Les Mis yesterday, I was a weepy mess (which I actually wasn’t expecting at all). Regardless, I’ll be sure to bear this in mind for future feely moviegoing…

    I don’t really cry at movies. I’m not the sympathetic type, either. For some reason, it beats me why people feel so sorry for each other. I mean, it has absolutely nothing to do with them. I’m sure I’ll grow up to be that cold-hearted, rude person everyone hates. Well, someone has to.
