Fun Friday: Don’t text, talk or make phone calls at the movies
 
This is a huge pet peeve of mine, people flipping open their phones, the light is annoying and it detracts from the movie, I have personally gone a bit overboard, yelling, sitting behind people and even once heaving a popcorn bucket at a couple.  I’m happy a movie theater is taking this seriously and it’s no surprise it is the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, a really amazing theater that I have been to, a place owned and run by people who love film and totally get it.

So here’s a very karmic response to the problem of texting in theaters, thank you Alamo Drafthouse:
