How Long Does it Take to Use the Bathroom During a Movie?

A few weeks back, while watching The Amazing Spiderman in the theatre, I had to go to the bathroom. Unfortunately, if I left my seat, I knew I would miss some of the movie. But how much?

To answer this question, I decided to use a stopwatch to time my trip to the theatre bathroom.

I stood up and made my way to the aisle. So as not to disturb the other patrons with the bright screen on my iphone, I started the timer just as I left the theatre. Therefore the timer represents the minutes of the film I didn't see at all, not just the minutes I wasn't in my seat.

Out into the deserted hallway, I quickly located the nearest bathroom and used it. Luckily it was a men's bathroom.

Unlike the rush before and after a movie, during the movie, the bathroom tends to be empty.

As I walked back into the theatre, I stopped the timer. It read 1 minute, 55 seconds.

Here's what I missed while I was gone: Doctor Curt Connors injected himself with lizard genetic material. A scene, but nothing critical, and certainly not someting I couldn't figure out afterwards.

Based on this one experience, I recommend that you do not hold your pee during a movie, but instead visit the restroom. You won't miss much. Unless you have diarrhea.
