‘Elvis’ Movie Fan Claims She Got Choked Out of Theater for Laughing
through Warner Bros.
Elvis is there and while the musical experience of the film was the spark of joy for many moviegoers, one patron claims he was punished for laughing during their screening.
According to Twitter user Claire Downs, during a screening at the Alamo Drafthouse, she received a card for “laughing at inappropriate times.”
The purported card was featured in a photo and asks the moviegoer to “respect the experience and refrain from talking and texting.” It would seem that laughter also meets these criteria.
The cinephile tried to explain his laugh during the film by saying “Baz [Luhrmann] does maximalism that intentionally evokes emotion, and laughter is one of those emotions.
Responding to the message, another moviegoer claimed to have received the same card during their screening of Elvissomething they had never received from theater before.
