Has anyone really ever had an "accident" in cinema?

I also remember reading a newspaper article several years ago about the problem of people wetting themselves in cinema chairs. They interviewed a cinema owner who explained how they would have to change or dry clean seats, and urged people to make sure young children peed before movies, and to leave in time for the bathroom if they had to pee during the movie. Apparently, the Harry Potter movies were notorious for having wet seats afterwards. It's clear that this is not just a fantasy scenario, but something that happens quite regularly.

Yeah, but the fantasy (hopefully for all of us here) is adults doing it, so no idea how common that is... there must be occasions where people go when drunk, or get stuck a long way from the aisle and desperate, get scared into an accident, or just can't tear themselves away from the film. I wonder what the stats are on wet seats after 18-rated movies?

Pretty low for sure. Most of the people would do anything not to wet their pants in public.

That'd be an interesting self-challenge: drink the biggest soda you can find and see if you can hold it through the whole movie. Of course, you wouldn't want to pee in a seat someone else is going to have to get in, so if you feel you're running out of time, you could always get up and stand near a wall.

You'd be safer doing it with a diaper Trekkie, or if you need to get up and go simply put yourself through another challenge as punishment for your failure.

While not an accident, one of the most desperate situations I have ever been in was cinema related.  I was a teenager, and had taken a girl I was friends without to the movies.  It was the last showing that evening.  After the movie I had to pee pretty bad, but the situation wasn't absolutely dire, just severely uncomfortable.  Unfortunately, there was a bit of a line for the theater's bathrooms.

Both of us needed to go fairly bad, so without thinking about it too much, we decided to exit the cinema and duck into the mall to which it was attached, which we knew had bathrooms immediately inside the mall entrance.  It was typical for moviegoers at this theater to use the mall restrooms this way.  As soon as we exited the theater, however, we immediately realized that the mall had long since closed, thus rendering the mall bathrooms inaccessible. The only solution was to go back into the theater and wait in line.  However, this also proved to be an impossibility; As this was the last show of the night, the theater lobby was closed and locked.  There was no way back into the theater. 

We were locked out in the cold with no access to any building that had restrooms, growing ever more desperate by the minute. Ultimately we both ended up relieving ourselves in the shrubbery that was part of the parking lot landscaping for the mall, praying that we were out of range of security cameras.  So, no accidents, but a very desperate movie related experience.

Edit: The concept of a movie theater accident inspired a scenario for an HD Wetting video a while back.  Members of HD Wetting can watch that video here.

I've definitely wet my jeans in a cinema when I was a kid, more than once. Somewhere on my computer I have a story I wrote about one incident. I'll post it if I can find it. :)

I never have personally, but I went to the cinema with a female friend who used her giant empty drinks container instead of leaving the cinema. What she found more annoying is there was only 10 minutes left of the movie when she went...
