Yes, twice. Once while watching the movie it was under the seat in front of me. The other time was by the concession area. They attach to products/boxes being delivered to the theater. Not really a big deal....But if it was a Snake!

I've not had that happen, but it doesn't surprise me.

I will say that whenever I drop some type of food on the floor near a cabinet or piece of furniture, I have this image in my mind of a small leathery hand coming out to grab it (too many Stephen King books I guess!)

No, but I am not surprised. There is plenty of food on the floor of the movie theaters.

No, but I was staying at a 5star resort, typing on my laptop, when one ran by the desk and under the bed. I freaked at first and then realized I wasn't going to catch it. I had to sleep with it in the room. I pulled back the drapes and realized it had been there for some time (droppings). I called management the next day but never found out if they did anything about it. Living in Florida has changed my perspective about creatures.

I've walked by alligators on the road
I've had snakes drop on my shoulders
I've opened the toilet seat to find a snake
I've found tree frogs in the house

The price of year round sunshine and an ocean steps away

I would have hate to be at that movie. I can only imagine how it disrupted the movie. Everybody should have been given a free pass.

Nope, never saw a mouse at the movies, but can imagine that would be a good place to be, all that junk on the floors to eat................haven't gone to a movie theatre in 34 yrs. though, but do remember drive in's with fondness...................

I had a tiny mouse that took up home in a corner of my office. The boys down the hall came and got him and kept him in a cage for a while. Unfortunately, he was too little and did not live long.

I have never seen one at the theater but I can imagine he was having a great time. I do remember waiting for a traffice light on night and I could see this little mouse running back and forth in front of the door to a business. I mentioned it to my sister and she had seen the same thing a few nights earlier.

I have seen mice in grocery stores and at school. I have never seen one in a movie theater. If it crawled on my foot. I would probably scream.

Many places like this employ cats to keep the mouse population down.

I like The Green Mile too. Good flick. I've never seen a real mouse in the movie theatre though.

Can't say that I have with the few times I went to the theater, but I am thinking on the same line as MEWHENRYSMAMA.

Mewhenrymama, your story reminded me of The Green Mile. One of my favorite movies.

Pretty sure the mouse in the movie theater was more afraid of the humans. And not the other way around.

My Rat Terrier loves mice. I couldn't bring any home.

LOL, you are funny...I have never had that happen but given the cold weather and the smell of popcorn I can see why they might take in a free movie! I would be unhappy, as I would worry about the mouse...all those feet! I am an animal lover...took home a mouse from work one day...he lived many years! And had one who tried to come to my keyboard while I was on the computer...I told him to go back and hide behind my flower pots in the window where he came from before maintenance saw him! He was adorable and to this day...six years later...I regret not catching him to bring home!
