Being noisy in the movie theater? Ninjas might shut you up

In Entertainment by Ned Hepburn / September 13, 2012

Three movie theaters in the UK have taken the somewhat drastic action of hiring ninjas to protect moviegoers from the plague of mid-screening phone calls, talking too loudly, or the dreaded checking-their-fucking-text-messages-every-five-minutes. You’re watching a movie, you’re not in your garage, people.

The ninjas are actually volunteers who wear all-black bodysuits while watching a movie for free, as part of the program. If they see someone screwing things up for everyone else (i.e: the person who won’t turn their phone off in the movie theater or the person who won’t shut up) they are allowed to get up in that person’s face as a shock tactic to get them to stop. The “ninjas” aren’t allowed to hit or touch anyone, yet so far the experiment has proven to be a massive and fun success.
