this IS my kind o' theater

i too cannot abide by someone talking on the phone in places where they should NOT be (as an example at work last week, i walked into the loo. there was a woman in there on her cell phone. i washed my hands and kept glaring at her. she did NOT get the hint. so in the cute gentle voice i have - NOT - i said, 'go ahead and finish your conversation. i'll come back when YOU are done. sorry to have disrupted you'. really, that is rudeness squared) or texting (we had a two day class last week at work. a friend of mine was texting the WHOLE two days. right in front of the facilitator, who by the way was an outside hired contractor. i wanted to say something to the texter, but i didn't.) i use my phone, don't get me wrong, but i don't think it's at inappropriate times. 

from the alamo drafthouse cinema blog:

She texted. We kicked her out.

As many of you know, I really can't abide people who talk during a movie. A couple of years ago I was accosted in the Village parking lot by a patron who was warned for talking in a movie. I've nearly come to blows more than a few times over the years with rude customers over the same issue. When we adopted our strict no talking policy back in 1997 we knew we were going to alienate some of our patrons. That was the plan. If you can't change your behavior and be quiet (or unilluminated) during a movie, then we don't want you at our venue. Follow our rules, or get the hell out and don't come back until you can.  ...............
