Madonna Banned From Texas-Based Theater Chain Alamo Drafthouse for Texting During Movie [NSFW]
The Alamo Drafthouse, a Texas-based theater chain, recently banned Madonna from watching movies at any of their establishments because they say she was texting during a New York Film Festival premier of “12 Years a Slave” earlier last week.
Even though the incident didn’t occur at an Alamo Drafthouse location, founder and CEO Tim League decided to take it upon himself to express his distaste for Madonna’s inconsiderate actions via Twitter saying, “Until she apologizes to movie fans, Madonna is banned from watching movies @drafthouse.”
The Alamo Drafthouse has had a longstanding policy against talking and texting in its theaters, and although League says the Tweet was initially put out there as a joke, he now plans to enforce it.
Of course, Madonna has not responded to the ban, and probably will not. What's interesting is this isn't the first time the Alamo Drafthouse has gotten publicity from their no texting rule. A couple of years ago, the theater chain started running the above video before their R-rated movies, which eventually became a viral Internet sensation. Funny stuff!
