On your Apple Watch's watch face, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access Control Center. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and press the Theater Mode button (looks like two theater masks). Tap the orange Theater Mode button to confirm. Theater Mode is a feature that once enabled, keeps your Apple Watch silent and its screen dark. If you have your Watch set to wake when you raise your wrist, this will be disabled when in Theater Mode. To wake your Apple Watch when in Theater Mode, tap the screen or press either the Digital Crown or side button. How to Use Theater Mode on the Apple Watch Swipe up from your watch's home screen to view the Control Center. Swipe to the bottom of the Control Center options until you see an icon with two theater masks. Tap on the Theater Mode icon and confirm you want to activate it by tapping the orange Theater Mode button. It lets you mute sounds and disable the raise-to-wake feature of the watch, meaning its screen won't light up when it senses your wrist turning to check the time. Theater Mode can be activated by swiping up from the bottom of the Apple Watch's display and tapping the drama-masks button. The notification mode is the first setting you'll see, and one swipe right to left will pull over Theater mode, which you can tap to enable Theater mode. While Theater mode is on, the screen won't wake up when you tilt it or touch it once, and your watch will not vibrate for incoming notifications.
