The Alamo Drafthouse has a strict no-texting policy. They have this weird theory that losing one shitty customer is alright because you’re getting so many more sensible, polite customers in return. It makes the theater experience better, makes people want to come to the theater, and then profits happen. Everbody’s happy. They also make warnings/PSAs that actually work. When you go to a multiplex, you get a cellphone company like Sprint or AT&T doing a cutesy PSA telling people they shouldn’t talk and text during the movie. No one pays attention, and they act like ass-holes anyway because the theater isn’t going to enforce anything.
By comparison, the Drafthouse does really catchy PSAs. Their best was using an angry voicemail from a patron who was kicked out for texting. Young Adult director Jason Reitman and star Patton Oswalt built off this hilarious voicemail for a new PSA and you can check it out after the jump.
