She Texted. We Kicked Her Out.

Posted on July 1, 2011 at 8:00 am

Hurray for the Alamo Drafthouse movie theater for standing up for the rights of movie-goers by kicking out a woman who was texting in the theater.   The Alamo’s policy is clear.  Since 1997 it has had a strict no-talking policy amended over the years to include other annoying and distracting behavior made possible by electronic devices.  After two warnings, a woman who persisted was ejected from the theater without a refund.

She then demonstrated the class and dignity one might expect from someone so ignorant and inconsiderate by leaving an hilariously piggish and downright idiotic voicemail with her views on the way she was treated and, in what I am sure was considered good news by Alamo’s managers and audiences, vowed never to return.  Alamo has turned this lemon into lemonade with a short played before their feature films.  Here is the censored version.
