Because there’s not a single person in this world who doesn’t hate going to the movies to have the experience ruined by a cell phone ringing, a patron texting or talking, one cinema in London has come up with a very efficient (and stealthy) way of ruling that out.
Prince Charles Cinema in Leicester Square uses volunteer “ninjas” (like bodyguards or ushers dressed in skintight black suits so you never know where they are exactly) to tell off patrons who forget their manners at home when they head into the theater, Slash Film informs.
The idea sounds quirky but, according to reports online, it’s extremely efficient as well.
“It was actually pretty terrifying at first,” one guy who was approached by the “ninjas” for talking on his mobile during the movie says.
“But then I realized it was a bit of a laugh and a great way to make it clear what I was doing was having an impact on those around me. It certainly made me hang up and shut up for the rest of the film,” he adds.
Ideally speaking, it would be best if “ninjas” were not necessary but, since you can’t expect everybody not to be rude at the movies, perhaps the “ninjas” will do. What do you think?
