Don’t text at the movies and CERTAINLY don’t complain about getting kicked out

John Moe Jun 7, 2011

The Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, TX reeeeeally doesn’t want you to text during movies. They recently kicked a woman out for doing so. She called and left a voice mail to complain. The theater then turned that complaint into this announcement, which they now show before movies.

Warning: lots of swears.
