The trend to wear a suit in the cinema came from the social network TikTok. There, under the hashtag #gentleminions, a lot of videos of visiting stylish cinema are posted that more and more young people are choosing these days. In those films, you can see how they dress for a walk, how they go to the cinema together and how loudly they cheer their heroes during the movie.
But not everyone is a fan of the fanatical Minion. Several British cinema owners have told the BBC that they are overwhelmed by complaints. Often for young children who come to see the Minion movie, the little ones’ cries lead to crying fits. Older viewers cannot watch the movie due to the noise. Many visitors come to claim their money back at the counter afterwards.
This is why more and more British cinemas are no longer allowing young men in suits to enter them. In some extreme cases, wearing the white shirt was enough to show the door. Even Guersney’s only Channel Island cinema pulled the movie from its schedule after young people not only turned things upside down but also committed acts of vandalism and were rude to the cast.
However, not all reactions are negative. Some moviegoers believe that the enthusiasm of the youngsters provides an additional experience. Universal Pictures also responded to the hype. “To everyone who appears in Minions in suits, we see and love you,” he wrote on Twitter.
