Removing a yarmulka at the movies


[Yes, I know this is not everyone's view. But I am citing Rav Moshe Feinstein's view here.]

One may not go to the theater or movies. One who chooses to go should not be advised to remove his yarmulka in the interest of avoiding chillul HaShem [desecration of the Divine Name]; this would only compound the sin, because his true interest would not be in preserving Divine honor.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 2:95)

Pitka tava,
