Keeping Moviegoers In Line


Gawker reports on a London movie theater’s new tactic to keep moviegoers well behaved. The Prince Charles theater offers free movies to those who agree to don a black leotard, covering their entire body, and maintain order throughout the screening. If audience members begin to talk, use their phones, or behave in any other distracting manner, the “cinema ninjas” will attack. Attack in the sense that they scare the unsuspecting patrons into good behavior.
