    Thanks to the assh@t family attending the movie last night -- did you really have to be so disrespectful to those of us behind you trying to watch the movie? A number of you in your family turned on your cellphone playing games/checking messages, etc all the while we are trying to watch the movie -- your phone light was on bright and was very distracting- Another thing was annoying that you guys were moving around excessively creating yet another distraction- If you cannot control your kids (they were clearly under 13 for a PG-13 movie), then stay at home with them along with your cell phones. I did ask you politely to turn off your cellphone and you refused--- You wouldn't even budge from your seat to go outside the room to use your phone--guess you are too lazy as well-

    Could you all NOT read the messages (I have to guess you guys are illiterate) at the beginning of the movie asking patrons to *TURN OFF* your cellphones so that others could ENJOY the movie without being disrupted by your bright cellphone light and/or talking? If you cannot do that, then keep yourselves at home and rent a redbox movie so you can talk / play with your cellphones all you want in the comfort in your home.

    Did you ever think about others behind you? Guess your inconsiderate self couldn't stomach following the customs in the movie theatre...We paid $$$ to watch a movie WITHOUT having to see a cellphone lighting up the darkness in the theatre.

    Next time, I catch you with your cellphone on for a long period of time, Im going to start banging my shoes at the back of your chairs so you can understand how we feel when you are so inconsiderate of others'.

    Better yet, stay home and don't come here to annoy many of us trying to watch the movie that we paid for expecting quiet / no cellphone usage!

    Thanks for nothing!!

    So the objective of bringing this to the Broadlands HOA Forum is?

    Talk to the manager the next time this happens and if the manager cannot resolve it, ask for a refund.

    I see nothing inappropriate about it. Years ago, someone started a thread for folks to vent their frustrations and it garnered a number of posts.

    Everytime I go to the movies now. You got to yell at those people when they do that. RedBox, Netflix and On-Demand rocks!

    That is totally right.. this is not an inappropriate post, but it is mis-directed.

    Many people today just do what they want without regard for consideration of others.

    We practically live in a consequence free society in the name of modern conveniences. Just look at everyone driving while looking at their phone, goes to an important meeting (or movie) and their phone ringer goes off. How many people are using their phone and are borderline addicted to their device.

    Capricorn, is that where you were going with this??

    I'm doing exactly what KTdid said... I have the right to vent here if I wish. I have seen people vent on here too (and I don't question them where they are going with theirs).

    What makes you think I'm not allowed to do so?

    Last, I see that this group is called "Broadlands Community Issues".

    Since the movie theatre serves the Broadlands Community, I see fit to post here. If you object to this, don't read.

    I'm done and am not entertaining any rebuttals from you- so go talk to the wall if you object to my posting here since you do not own this group--Broadlands HOA does.

    Well for what it is worth I am sorry this happened and ruined your night out at the movies. I agree with the poster who said to go demand a refund. If they say no to that let us all know so we here in Broadlands can support you and maybe boycott that theater.

    You just have too many anecdotal posts. We all have incidents like yours yet you seem to be the one who posts about ALL of them. YMMV

    It's just basic passive-aggressiveness. If he were venting it would have been written in the first person rather than to some abstract second-person "you".

    Nah Cap, you can keep all those unpleasant life experiences and subsequent rant posts all (well, almost all ) to yourself.

    I don't bother giving hollywood too much money anymore, but if I do, Alamo is the only option. Bouncing inconsiderate folks out of the theater is one of their favorite past times.
