Silent Movie Etiquette Signs Prove That People Were Always Jerks

You think people talking on their phones during a movie is bad? In the 1900s, people had to deal with saucy debutantes attending matinees with their large, obstructing hats. And if it wasn’t a hat blocking your view, then it was some dapper gent puffing away on a cigar mid-show (because after watching the mindfuck that was The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, I guess for some people the most sensible thing to do back then was grab a smoke). These old school movie etiquette signs from the silent movie era are interesting relics of a past that still mirror the future. It’s nice to know that bad manners and a reckless disregard for others are qualities that will never die. [Source: Retronaut]
