How to Enable Theater Mode on Apple Watch in watchOS 3.2

Enable Theater Mode on your Apple Watch in watchOS 3.2 to mute the sound and prevent the screen from lighting up on wrist raise. It's designed to let you keep the smartwatch quiet.

watchOS 3.2 has got an exclusive feature named “Theater Mode.” When activated, it mutes the sound of Apple Watch and also disables “Raise to Wake” in order to stop the screen from waking with arm movement.

You can access notifications and get haptic feedback, even when Theater Mode is enabled on your Apple Watch. To view the alerts or notifications, you need to tap on the screen or press the Digital Crown or side button. Look forward to taking the new feature for a test drive on your smartwatch? Here you go!
