Anderson Cooper joins the Alamo’s new legion of supporters:
Ross. you made my week.
Way to go ALAMO!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for the post Ross!
I second all the comments on here. That woman who was rude enough to text and bother everybody else in the Alamo Drafthouse Theatre deserved to be kicked out. This isn’t such a gentle world, especially nowadays. She’ll meet her match sooner or later.
I also might add that perhaps if more movie theatres had this “zero tolerance” policy towards texting and cellphone use in general while in the movie theatre, it would bring more people back to the movie theatres.
Right on target there MPol,there is plenty of time in the day to text and talk on you phone,why do it in the movies?
Thank you, TLSLOEWS. I agree that there’s plenty of time during the day for phone use and texting. I can never figure why people do it in the movies, either.
it is another reason I quit going,besides the dumb movies put out.I have to position myself not to see it,being an old theatre manager I notice things most folks don’t.Had they had them things in the 70’s Don’t think I wouldn’t toss someone out real quick.
I hear you, Mike Rogers! I’m not a theatre manager, and I never have been, but rather than quit going to the movies, I’ve mostly avoided the multiplexes where that kind of rudeness seems to be a much bigger problem, and have a couple of yearly memberships at the only two independent movie theatres in our area, instead. The rudeness of cellphone use and texting seems to be considerably less of a problem in the theatres that show better-quality films, but it would be nice to have a ‘zero tolerance" policy in all movie theatres here in the United States.
