Kinoplex Robert or just simply Robert, is Stock Photography meme originating on 4chan's /tv/ board. The original stock photo features an African-American man standing behind a movie theater concession stand, wearing a name-tag identifying him as "Robert". The meme is generally features a photoshopped variation of the stock photo accompanied by text mocking embarrassing or bizarre behaviors done in a movie theater, with Robert maintaining a friendly demeanor and often aiding the reader in overcoming their odd behaviors.


The earliest known use of the meme on 4chan's /tv/ board is in November 2015, with a post using the photo of Robert presenting the viewer with popcorn accompanied by text implying that the reader's mother would be buying the popcorn for them. [1]

Various edits of the original photo were made, and it quickly became associated with other /tv/ memes related to the kinoplex, such as the "no singles policy", "designated shooter", "crab legs", and the "popcorn mines," seeing consistent use over four years. Recent posts in the meme include a September 8th, 2019 post referencing Joker (shown below, left) and a Baneposting post from September 6th (shown below, right).

I'm lonely. I've been lonely for a long time. That's why I kept sneaking in during no-singles nights And you always looked the other way. I appreciate that, you were a good friend. But as much as I love you as a friend, there are some holes no amount of crab legs can fill. That's why I had to finally admit defeat and ask out a girl with autism. She may not be all there but she likes me for me and for the first time in my life I like me for me too. Robert, my friend, my bro, my sole defender: I beg you Please let me be happy We can still hang out, I1l still shoot finger guns at you when I see you at the candy bar. Ill still tip you for pouring chocolate sauce on my popcorn. But I'm a worn man, I am tired of my solitude. Please don't tell on me.
