Nope. Unless there's an after credits scene. Life's too short to sit there in the dark longer than I have to. I have an app called "After Credits" that lets me know if I'll have to waste my time or not after the show.

Re: When you go to the movies, do you stay and watch the credits?

No. I'll watch the credits if they got some animation going or whatever like Deadpool had. Or like the Avengers w/ their stuff but once that shit is one... unless there's an after credits thing coming... fuck the credits. I don't care to know about all these people. They're irrelevant to me. I came for the work they did and I paid for it. I'm not caring to see who the fuck was whose assistant.

Re: When you go to the movies, do you stay and watch the credits?

It depends. If I've really enjoyed the movie, I like to sit there and continue digesting it for a few minutes. I like listening to the music and still feeling the atmosphere of the movie.

If the theatre is really packed, I don't want to slog through the clogged aisle, I'll sit in my seat and watch the credits till the theatre is empty and I can exit freely at my own pace.

Re: When you go to the movies, do you stay and watch the credits?

Only stay to the end if I know there is an extra scene there or some visual images are going (like Deadpool). If just a black screen with scrolling text, I'm gone. I might stay to look at the cast if there if I want to know who played a character, but cast list is usually at the beginning of credits. Honestly, I don't give a crap who worked on it beyond director, cast & writers. Who gives a crap who the key grips, best boy & caterers were? Not me.

I did enjoy the films that had half the screen playing bloopers and the credits scrolling on the other half. Of course, I wasn't paying attention to the credits.

Similar poll here, but I always stay, even for non-Marvel movies.

Re: When you go to the movies, do you stay and watch the credits?

My wife and I so rarely go to the theater anymore but when we do, unless I have a sneaking suspicion there might be what I call a "snippet" post-credits, we leave. Whenever we watch a movie at home though, I always fast-forward through the credits just in case there is a snippet hiding in there that we missed when we watched the movie 3 (or so) years ago.

Wish the poll allowed for multiple selections. I picked "other" because I will stay for different reasons.

If there's something after credits, but even then only occasionally.

I look for the cast, then leave. Fuck post credit scenes. Absolutely pointless and usually poorly directed.

Only if I know there is something after the credits, or if the credits themselves are visually interesting (David Mack's ending credits for 'Captain America: Winter Soldier').

Re: When you go to the movies, do you stay and watch the credits?

I usually stay; combination of respect for the creators, chance of a end scene, waiting for crowds to disperse. I browse the internet while I'm waiting, what I'll likely do when I get home anyway, so it's not really wasted time.

As soon as they start to roll, I pop open my phone to see if there is anything at the end. If not, I'm gone. Don't care in the slightest who the caterers were.

I almost always stay, unless I ended up disliking the movie, which is rare. Or, unless the credits are deliberately long, just to pad out the movie's length.

Good point about staying for different reasons. And sorry about not allowing multiple selections and I would have allowed it, but I didn't know it was an option here.

Re: When you go to the movies, do you stay and watch the credits?

I'll stay sometimes.

Mostly for an extra scene afterwards. Although those are really hit or miss.

But sometimes I like to see the cast of characters and see if there was anyone I know that I may have not immediately recognized.

I stay, but I don't watch the credits. I wait for the theater to empty, then I start masturbating furiously in hopes that I get caught by theater staff when they come to clean the theater. After they catch me I run away screaming that its Obama's fault. Its all part of the cinematic experience for me.

Re: When you go to the movies, do you stay and watch the credits?

They're part of the movie- no reason not to stay for them. (How does anyone "know" if there's a scene afterwards if nobody else watched all the way to the end before? Besides, I like to be surprised when there is a scene afterwards, not find out in advance.) The ones I really read are the cast, sound people and music credits- that's how I know who's written many songs. (Of course I read the liner notes in CDs also.) I didn't see Transformers til a few years after it was out, but I saw that someone I knew in high school was one of the modelmakers- I knew he'd wanted to do special effects but didn't know he was working on big movies til I saw that. Looked him up on IMDB and saw he'd done a few other movies which he didn't get screen credit for, or his name was buried in.

When I worked at Tower Records I took an order from Kathy Nelson- everyone should know who that is!

What I'd like to know is who was the first person who decided it was OK to leave during end credits? Star Wars was the first movie I ever saw that had long end credits, and my dad was ready to leave but I didn't want to and I didn't understand why other people were leaving. I wanted to hear the music and look at the stars at least!

It depends, sometimes I'll stay and read the cast credits at least or if there's a song or theme playing I like I'll stay. I also always wait for post credits scenes.
