Yho! Callers share their nightmare cinema and theatre-going stories

Watching a stage production or catching a movie on big screen can be a great experience.

That is, until the other people around you try to ruin it.

Listeners phoned in to share some of their unpleasant encounters while out to a enjoy a film, play or concert.

Lungile

Roger

Mino

Karen

Take a listen to their stories:
