    I don’t know if this is related, exactly, but I’ll share it anyway:

    As a professional symphonic musician (French Horn), I have heard many stories of audience members falling asleep at concerts. Rather than being offended, I am pleased that they got some obviously much-needed rest!

    People should be able to relax at art events, whether it’s a film or a concert. Why not catch a few z’s?

    My bête noir is 2001: A Space Odyssey which I fell asleep in twice on the big screen and only got through on TV though I love Kubrick.
    A classical music reviewer I knew had a giveaway phrase “failed to hold attention.” For movies, it may be “hypnotizing”.
