Cool Videos: Former hitman Richard Linklater's PSA for the Alamo Drafthouse

100%

I've always admired the Alamo Drafthouse policy on talking and texting in its theaters; they don’t like it and they don’t stand for it. You will get tossed out without a refund if you’re caught talking or texting during a movie, how great is that? They like to keep reminding everyone of this rule, and they do so with pretty funny videos from actors and filmmakers.

Richard Linklater took some time during his promotional rounds for BOYHOOD, which should be expanding into more theaters this week (so find it), to provide some helpful instructions on how to deal with these Tommy texters and chatty Cathy’s.

Also, while I’m shamelessly promoting BOYHOOD whenever I can around here, you should know that the movie was rated R by the MPAA"for language including sexual references, and for teen drug and alcohol use." In other words, the MPAA still sucks.

Still the best "no talking" PSA ever (Alamo Drafthouse actually used this one for a while a few years ago): [link]

ALAMOS FOR ALL!!!

The Alamo Drafthouse GENUINELY seems to be the only film house having fun in what it wants to be and even relishing it. A movie house that is genuinely interested in the films they present? EGAD!

PS what was that music?

Going to movies sucks this days...

People :
- talking
- texting
- checking the cellphone (the cellphone is killing the pleasure of movie theater experience)
- laughing loudly
- eating loudly
- foot resters
- latecomers (sometimes 30 minutes after the beggining of the movie)
I understand why VOD is more and more popular...
I am a die-hard movie fan and this is my code :
- Turn off my cellphone
- go to restroom before the film
- never miss a second of a movie
- be as quiet as possible (I understand laughing

- be as quiet as possible (I understand laughing during a comedy but that's it)
- I ALWAYS stay during all the end crédits, stinger or not, good movie or bad movie, by respect for the film

I always try to Watch a movie at the theater, I Watch a movie on dvd/Blu-ray only if the movie was not released in theaters in my area or if I missed it ; I'm not a fan of VOD cause as a collector I love the object !!!!
To try to avoid shity expériences at the theater, I try to go to the morning sessions only (less people less annoying people, sometimes I am alone and that's awesome) !
