Alamo Drafthouse To Run ‘Team America’ In Place Of ‘The Interview’
  |  @   |  

Now that Sony has apparently thrown in the white towel with their not-upcoming-anymore brutally honest and eye-opening documentary on North Korea, The Interview…wait, it’s not a brutally honest and eye-opening documentary about the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea supreme leader Kim Jong-un? It’s actually a silly satirical comedy starring Seth Rogen and James Franco? Well, that’s weird. Someone should let them know.

While many theaters are running from all of this madness, the Dallas/Fort Worth Alamo Drafthouse has decided to turn up a defiant middle finger. The theater will replace The Interview with a special screening of South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone‘s satirical marionette puppet comedy Team America: World Police. Read more about the event below.

London Movie Theater Hires Volunteer Ninjas To Deter Rude Patrons
  |  @   |  

When someone talks or uses a cellphone during a movie at the Alamo Drafthouse, they are booted from the theater.

Most theater chains won’t implement this kind of rule and choose to play out some generic and non-threatening clip asking patrons not to use their cellphones.

But a London theater called The Prince Charles Cinema is taking this rule to the next hilarious (and potentially dangerous) level. They have volunteer ninjas dressed in all black bodysuits watching over the theaters looking out for any kinds of disturbance. When they do find one, they give disturbance to the one ruining the movie experience.

/Film has found someone who has experienced this for themselves, and it looks like The Prince Charles Cinema ninjas are effective.
