There's nothing more infuriating for cinema-goers (other than perhaps the offensive odour of popcorn) than futile attempts to slowly un-wrap a sweet wrapper during the decisive part of the movie.
I propose that the big confectionary companies adapt the technology already employed by producers of
incontinence pants and launch a "cinema friendly range" of products packaged in non-rustling wrappers made from 100% non-rustle PVC. This would leave us to focus on the real cinema villians ..... popcorn munchers!

||I believe you'll find that cinemas like to sell noisy (and smelly) foods, as it encourages other cinema-goers to buy them too.
||+ Maybe this will justify the prices charged at the snack bar.
