In response, cinemas have started banning the favored outfit of the #GentleMinions. A moviegoer at an Odeon Cinema location snapped a photo (below) of a sign posted on the entrance to the building which prohibited any guests in formal attire from attending The Rise of Gru.
Mallard Cinema in Guernsey reported “stunningly bad behavior” of large groups who threw things at the screen, swore loudly, and hurled abuse at other moviegoers and cinema staff. Police were called twice to the cinema last weekend. According to the cinema’s manager Daniel Phillips-Smith, the interrupted screenings have had a massive financial impact on the theater “simply due to the large amount of refunds we’ve had to give.” He predicts as many as 200 refunds were issued over the weekend.

As NBCUniversal/Illumination’s Minions: The Rise of Gru took the top spot at the U.K. box office last weekend, some cinemas in the country were forced to ban groups of young people in suits from attending screenings of the film after several locations reported vandalism and unruly behavior.

Another venue in Worcester reported issuing £1300 (,550) worth of refunds in a single day as a result of complaints against #GentleMinions groups.
