A friend sent me the funny video below, of a customers voicemail after they got thrown out of a cinema for using their phone.
Most interesting is the fact they think that if it’s on silent it’s ok to use it ? Do they not realise that there is nothing more irritating than the glow of a phone screen in a dark cinema or theatre, why oh why don’t people realise that? Despite the fact in a live theatre it is downright rude to be texting, tweeting or surfing net when people are working on stage. If you want to do that, stay at home, sit on a bus, train or in a cafe and do it to your hearts content. If you’re desperate to Tweet, waiting until the interval is surely not too much to ask?
There’s some strong language in the video, but I like fact the Alamo Drafthouse Theater cinema in Austin Texas are standing by their kick out policy and have a sense of humour by posting this up on YouTube.
