Would Achmed the Dead Terrorist be proud? Probably not, as one movie going patron took silencing talkers to a whole new level.
You know how you hate those people that have to talk through the whole damn movie. The ones you’d just like to grab you paper cup full of taste beverage and ram into their mouth to silence. Well, ccording to an article in the Philidelphia Inquirer one crazy man did more than just toss popcorn at a talkative father and son during a screening of the Curious Case of Benjamin Button. After repeatedly telling the father and son to shut their pie hole the man pulled a gun and shot the father in the arm.
Here’s how the article breaks down the scene:
Police were called to the Riverview Theatre in the 1400 block of Columbus Boulevard about 9:30 p.m. where the gunshot victim, a Philadelphia man who was not identified, told police a man sitting near him told his family to be quiet and threw popcorn at his son.
After exchanging words, Vanore said Cialella allegedly got out of his seat to confront the family when the father got up to protect them. That’s when the victim was shot once in the left arm, sending others in the theatre running to safety.
Cialella then sat down to watch the movie. Police arrived a short time later and arrested Cialella and confiscated his weapon, Vanore said.
That’s seriously messed up. I’ve yelled at people to shut up before. Even went and told the theatre staff to watch the talkative group be ejected, but to shoot someone. I don’t know
