"I'll silence you faster than a Michael Bay dialogue scene."
The next time you pull out that cell phone for a quick text, don't be surprised if a shadowy warrior materializes behind you and tells you to stop it. Sound crazy? A London movie theater is doing exactly that.
The Prince Charles Cinema
is apparently trying out a program whereby ushers, hidden by black morphsuits
will be on the prowl to silence any loud talkers, annoying phone users, and general miscreants that may be out to ruin the movie for the rest of us.
Interestingly enough, the idea actually began when Gregor Lawson became so fed up with obnoxious movie-goers, he decided to do something about it. Who's Gregor Lawson you ask? None other than co-founder of the official Morphsuits
company. Sounds like a win/win for everyone.
I'll be curious to see if a similar trend follows in American theaters. It may seem a little odd but I'm all for keeping distraction down in a theater. Now if only they can do something about the people that have to get up every fifteen minutes and walk in front of me...
