Woman Kicked Out Of Theater For Texting Leaves Angry Voicemail

A woman was kicked out of a movie theater in Austin, Texas for texting during a movie — a theater, might we add, that warns of the consequences of said behavior repeatedly. The joke pretty much writes itself, right? Not exactly.


The irate customer was so fuming mad that she called and left a seriously regrettable voicemail for the Alamo Theater. A voicemail that said theater would then turn into an online video for the world to enjoy. From Alamo's YouTube account:

We do not tolerate people that talk or text in the theater. In fact, before every film, we have several warnings on screen to prevent such happenings. Occasionally, someone doesn't follow the rules, and we do, in fact, kick their asses out of our theater. This video is an actual voicemail from a woman that was kicked out of one of our Austin theaters. Thanks, anonymous woman, for being awesome.

As a native Austinite, I'm glad everyone gets to read about how rad the Alamo is. It's the only movie theater I go to because their policies are awesome. In addition to the no talk/no text rule, there's also a no children under six rule and no under 18's without a parent or guardian. Plus, pizza and cocktails while watching a movie in blessed silence? Amazing.

My boyfriend and I go to the Ritz location at least once a week for Terror Tuesdays but we're extra excited about Monday: we're going to see a brand new 35mm print of Taxi Driver. What other movie theater does that?
