LISTEN: Caller rings Joe Duffy to complain about couples having sex in the cinema

Not what you expect to see when you go to see Spider-Man at 3pm.

A caller has just rang into Joe Duffy to complain about two different couples having sex in a Dublin cinema, while his son and his friend went to see Spider-Man.

The incident in question took place at an afternoon screening of the Marvel movie in IMC Tallaght in The Square.

The caller said that two different couples in the cinema had sexual intercourse while the movie was going on.

He was outraged that nobody came in at any point to check that nothing untoward was happening in the screen, and lodged an official complaint with the cinema soon after it happened.

He said: "To be honest with you they were shocked, they froze... If someone's prepared to do that in front of me and my pal, there's obviously something not right... This was obviously pre-planned by them. They knew full well what they were going to do."

"As a parent, I'm shocked. I'm appalled... There's no way you can condone this."

Somebody then called in to say that this sort of thing would never happen in Galway, and asked "What is the cinema becoming?"

Despite the serious nature of the topic, Joe Duffy couldn't resist a fairly solid pun about the legal aspect of the whole thing, describing it as a "50 shades of grey area". Good stuff.
