Movie Theater Text Rant


Praise is being heaped upon the Alamo Drafthouse, a small chain of movie theaters in Austin, Texas. The Drafthouse has a simple policy: if you text or talk during the movie, you're out. You're an impolite jerk who probably wants to be somewhere else anyhow.

According to Drafthouse management, a woman was warned twice recently about texting during a screening, and then—in accordance with their policy—the young lady was escorted out without a refund. The woman called the Drafthouse and left a f-bomb-filled message about the policy. The theater thought her message was as entertaining as any movie trailer so they decided to share it with their customers. It has since become a web sensation.
