My first moment like that was at Tremors: when Michael Gross and Reba Mcintyre killed the graboid in their basement. I remember that moment fondly.

-Gordon's not dead - The Dark Knight
-Batman's response and action after Joker asks him if he ever told him about the scars - TDK
-The bad guy gets knocked out at the end of Moulin Rouge

Just a few off the top of my head.

X-Men...when Wolverine first stuck out his claws to that dude in the bar. Everyone applauded and wowed

The last I remember was the Pencil Trick. Oh, and when RDJ reveals he's Iron Man at the end of said movie.

I remember the end of the Moscow car chase in Bourne Supremacy got some applause. Whether you hate the shaky-cam stuff or not, that was an incredible sequence; I literally heard people exhaling at the end of it, probably having held their breath through the whole thing.

People clapped when at the end of Frequency Dennis Quaid came in. And when I saw Disaster Movie, no one was clapping, because out of the half-full theater that saw it with me, they had all walked out within the first 15 minutes. I was the only one who saw the end credits.

From The Dark Knight:
Spoiler:
- Gordon's return
- Batman welcomes the Joker in the negotiation room
- the truck flip


Iron man:
Spoiler:
- the auto detection of the several villains in the village
- the appearance of Samuel L. Jackson (only some black guys and me were still there after the credits )


The applause was quite surprising for me because in Germany the movies crowd never applaudes (festivals excluded).

During Twilight:
  • When the production company logo first came up.
  • When the titles started
  • Approximately every ten minutes thereafter.
  • When it ended


That's the most recent.

Well, I would like to thank the very few people in this thread who actually used spoiler tags.

The Return of the Jedi.

When Vader finally turned good and killed the Emperor got people applausing big time when I first saw it at the theater.

I remember seeing that and starting to clap and maybe 3 or 4 people followed suit in a crowded theatre.

Can anyone pinpoint when audiences stopped applauding at the end of movies? Growing up, I remember always doing that. I did it as a teen, and in my early 20s. Sometime in the last decade, though, gradually, fewer people clapped with me. I was the only one in the entire theater who clapped at the end of Quantum of Solace, and despite the inevitable "That's because that movie sucked" comments, the buzz was pretty strong amongst everyone coming out of that screening.

And, to add to the list of moments, when the only sound was Yoda's cane and you knew what was coming near the end of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.

It just happened gradually. People have literally become more jaded as time has gone on.

The Dark Knight, a.k.a. the most crowded movie I ever went to see.

Spoiler:
The magic trick got a few laughs/cheers, not huge though.

Gordon's return got a BIG reaction.

The reveal of the Batpod had the whole audience pumped (a friend of mine was quite jealous when I told him).


Red Dragon

Spoiler:
Tooth Fairy getting finished off


The Simpsons Movie

Spoiler:
SEVERAL moments, mainly in the first and gloriously plotless 45 minutes of the movie.


Snakes on a Plane

Spoiler:
There was some sort of reaction every 5 minutes, but when Samuel L. Jackson said the line everyone wanted him to it was so loud you couldn't even hear the whole line.


X-Men: The Last Stand

Spoiler:
"I'm the Juggernaut bitch!", unfortunately, and the very end, which I then booed at and was shot down by some idiot who thought it was the best movie ever. I disagreed.

I remember at the end of Passion Of The Christ, the entire theatre (who were holding back tears or crying for the past hour) all clapped hands loudly.
