Woman Kicked Out Of Movie Theater For Texting Digs Hole Deeper With Irate Voicemail

You know those jerks who insist on using their cell phones during movies, talking in what they think is a “quiet voice,” or texting distractedly while blinding you with their bright blue iPhone screens? If I had a severed, bloody texting finger in my basement for each time this has happened to me, I’d have a whole lot of…nevermind. What’s that, you live in a civil place with no tolerance for movie-ruiners? Is it Austin?

I suspected as much, because an Austin movie theater called the Alamo Drafthouse recently publicized their no cell phones policy by publishing a phone call they received from an irate customer after telling her to take a hike. The customer says: “I will never be comin’ back to your ‘Alamo Drafthouse’ or whatever, I’d rather go to a reglear [sic.] theater where people are actually polite!” (Oh, the irony.) This video says: “See? We really do kick people out! And if you drunkenly call us up to complain, we will publicly mock you by posting your rant on Youtube with no alterations whatsoever.” The subtitles are an especially nice touch, letting mispronunciations like “reglear” and “MAGNITED STATES OF AMERICA” shine to their fullest potential.

It appears you can also buy beer at this movie theater, which would be a big improvement over sneaking in forties like my friends and I currently do. This is reason number eleventy-billion why I am constantly considering blowing this town for good and kickin’ back in the warm, polite, and moderately priced environs of Austin, Texas. Once I get all of my friends and my boyfriend on board with this plan, you can bet my posts will be written from down south. But not during a movie. No, never during a movie.

    I’m a transplanted Austinite who moved to New York a few years ago. There are many wonderful things about this city that I appreciate, but movie going is not on the list. I was shocked at the rude behavior that occurs up here: it’s quite normal for someone in front of you to talk through the movie and text as well, blinding you! And good luck trying to be polite and ask them to please stop…lol! I’m not saying that doesn’t happen down there, but it’s the exception. And boy, do I miss the Draft House. Beer and food delivered to you while you watch a movie? Hells yeah. : )

    They just opened up an Alamo Draft House here in Nowhere, Virginia. They tell you before the movie starts that you will be kicked out if you use your phone in any way. It’s not like she wasn’t warned. Also, they bring margaritas to my seat. Fantastic!

    Typical new breed of trashy Western women. Feminists everywhere would be proud.

    Well if they treated her like a piece of s*** … I don’t know … maybe … just maybe … it was because she is a piece of s***.
