Movie Theater

Cinematophobia or cinemaphobia (made of cinema, meaning "movie theater", and phobia), also known as theatrophobia, is the fear of going to a movie theater. People who fear movies would not go there. Sufferers of cinematophobia may not just fear watching the movie there, but also fear sitting in the dark (achluophobia).

As a result of the 2012 movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado, cases of cinematophobia has increased with the added fear of death (thanatophobia), thus resulting in less people going to the movie theaters since.
