No texts please, we’re watch­ing

Here’s a good-news story. The Alamo Draft­house in Austin, Texas, re­cently ejected a cin­ema­goer for tex­ting dur­ing a movie. Quite right too. That’s not all the good news. The of­fend­ing tex­ter later phoned up the cin­ema and left an ob­scene mes­sage on the an­swer­ing ma­chine. Un­daunted, the peo­ple at the Draft­house lifted the au­dio and – to demon­strate the de­based men­tal­ity of cin­ema tex­ters – in­cor­po­rated it as part of an in­for­ma­tive film screened be­fore all R-rated movies.

“I didn’t know I wasn’t sup­posed to text in your crappy lit­tle theatre,” she rants. Yeah? Did you know you weren’t al­lowed to pass wa­ter on the seats?
