Claustrophobic actress Dame Judi Dench has revealed that her fear of the dark keeps her from watching films in theatres.
She has revealed that she can get through a screening only when her pals are around.
She even says that she has not seen many a classic film owing to her fear of being trapped in the dark.
"I used to have claustrophobia inside the cinema because I didn''t like it in the dark. I missed out on films as a kid. Now I''m better watching films on DVD with friends around than on my own," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
