“Cinema Ninjas” Employed to Silence Rude Moviegoers in London
It doesn’t get much worse than being in a movie theater with a fellow viewer who won’t keep quiet. Though there is not much that can be done to stop these rude beings, a London cinema has begun employing volunteer ninjas to police the aisles of their screening rooms in order to maintain silence during the show.
The Prince Charles Cinema in Leicester Square teamed up with Morphsuits to recruit a team of volunteers to protect theaters from pesky spectators who can’t keep quiet.
The ‘ninjas’ dress themselves in black all-in-one Lycra suits and place themselves in the darkest areas of the theater and wait to confront inconsiderate behavior such as talking or the use of cellphones.
Morphsuits co-founder Gregor Lawson stated “I’m a big fan of going to the cinema, but there’s an unspoken code of conduct when you’re watching a movie that some people just don’t understand. Morphsuits hope to expand the project into a nationwide scheme help create a culture that adheres to the proper movie-going experience.
