    ... if all theatres were like the Alamo Drafthouse.

    ... if theaters wouldn't allow dumbass parents to take underage kids to inappropriate movies. Like the parents who brought their toddler to the matinee of "The Hangover 2" on Saturday.

    That was funny. I would just hope that they're careful enough not to play that at the kiddie flicks.

    One time, my parents and I went to see a film, and a group of teens/early 20-somethings were yakking away during the film. With each other, not even on their phones. My mom finally yelled, "Can you keep it down? We're trying to watch the movie!"

    A couple of girls screamed and cursed back. Then they were shouted down by the rest of the theater.

    ... If teenagers were forced to attend other theaters, preferably in a different plane of existence.

    I don't blame teenagers. I've seen plenty of so-called adults who were just as bad.

    The theater I frequent has a much older clientele. I'm in my early 40s and I'm often the youngest person in the theater. Sometimes I wish there were teenagers there. Some of the senior citizens WHO SHOULD KNOW BETTER talk and talk and talk.

    That was awesome. I plan to give the Alamo Drafthouse some of my business the next time I am in Austin.

    I'm 25. Sometimes I text in theatres. I was watching the hangover 2 last week and I had to pull my phone out a few times to shoot an e-mail to an editor, or a contact, or my real estate agent. Just one of those things. And no, I didn't have time to wait.
