    I'm guessing that those people either worked on a movie or know someone who works on a movie...or they're movie geeks like me.

    Makes sense.

    Usually scenes after the credits are comical and unimportant, as if they were part of an outtake that the filmmakers found funny. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, was one of the exceptions. It's post-credit scenes was pivotal to the story. The other two Pirates movies also had post-credit scenes, but they were mostly for humor.

    Plus, they want you to remember their names.

    Only for summer blockbusters, and even then those last thirty seconds of teaser aren't really worth it.

    Maybe I stay for the musical score...

    I leave mostly immediately. If I find out there was something I missed at, say, the end of the credits, I'll YouTube it. No need to spend $7-10 for some 20 second BS.

    My classmate in college lived in LA for a long time and said people in the audience practically got insulted if you got up before the credits.

    I tend to stay through the end of the credits. Figure I'll get my money's worth and yes, see any extras they might have. And not have to deal with the crush of people exiting. Also, if I'm in a sappy mood, I'll look for the credits for jobs I could imagine myself in, like 2nd best boy and assistant to the assistant's assistant.

    It can be interesting waiting till the end where to the "we'd like to thank" section, as it gives you insight into where and how the movie was made. Some actors can command their own hair and make-up people, some movies everyone gets whoever is working that day.

    There are only a few reasons as to why i would stay and watch credits
    1. I really wanted to know who one of the actors were because they looked familiar and i couldn't identify them.
    2. The movie was so good that i sit there with my jaw dropped and eyes wide open until the little sweepy guys come in.
    3. I don't want to get trampled by people while trying to leave.

    I used to stay all the time. Now that I have kids complaining (if I have taken them), I usually don't torture them unless there is something specifically I want to see.

    Usually I would stay after (1) for the music or (2) to see the particular credits for things I enjoyed in the movie or (3) there is the expectation of some "easter egg" [i.e., animation, outtakes, something frivolous] if I stay.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I don't even stay in the theatre when the movie's over. I hope out the back exit. Places to go, people to see!

    Not, but still.
