Check Time in Apple Watch Theater Mode Without Ticking People Off

As you probably already know, your Apple Watch will typically light up the display when you raise your wrist. This is disruptive in dark environments, like theaters, and plenty of complaints about it rolled in until Apple introduced Theater Mode in watchOS 3. Theater Mode, recognizable by the icon depicting the comedy and tragedy masks, disables the “raise wrist to wake screen” functionality.

When Theater Mode is active, your Apple Watch can only be activated by tapping the screen. Unfortunately, that results in the display coming on at full brightness. That’s not always ideal when you want to discreetly check the time in the middle of a movie.
