Alamo Drafthouse has a pretty strict policy. It's a dining style theatre and each little table thing has lighting under it. Also, there's a strict no late policy, so she should have known where her seat was.
They could just kill signal in the theaters.I've seen it occasionally and it pisses me off too.
I wish there was some type of "phone check" for movie theaters and performance spaces where people are required to turn them in and pick them up afterward. Logistically, that would be a hassle though.
They have started opening them outside of Texas too now, I believe. One in Virginia and one in Michigan. I think California is also in the future.Oh wooow. Hahaha. Sad that it happened in Texas too.
I always sit in the very front. More leg room, probably like three rows to myself, and just overall a better experience since people are not going up and down.
For a contrarian viewpoint--It's distracting to other people, in case you haven't figured that out. If you can't wait 2 hours to get vital updates from your friends, do us a favor and stay home.
The BS is from her. She clearly stated she didn't know she "wasn't allowed to text in the theeee-aiter" and then proudly declared she has texted in every other theater in Austin.
Well said...I think the problem is that the development of mobile phones and their widespread use is such a recent phenomenon that an agreed form of etiquette - or manners - has yet to evolve over how they should be used in public.
Personally, I'm not a fan of mobile phone usage while watching a movie, and, above all while attending a play. Usually, while attending plays, I have noticed that a member of the theatre staff will mount the stage immediately before the performance to explain where the emergency exits can be found and will then request that the audience turn off their mobile phones during the performance.
