There was a guy in Philadelphia who got so annoyed with people taking during a movie that he took a shot at them.Â No, he didn't shoot a glaring look at them, he shot at them.Â I admit I hate when people talking during movies.Â In fact, I can't stand it.Â The movie theatre is not your living room, but I haven't reached the point of trying to shoot someone.
Here's a little more of the story from the Associated Press:
James Joseph Cialella, 29, of Philadelphia, told the man's family to be quiet, then threw popcorn at the man's son, police said. The victim told police that Cialella was walking toward his family when he stood up and was shot.
Detectives called to the United Artists Riverview Stadium theater in South Philadelphia found Cialella carrying the weapon, a .380-caliber handgun, in his waistband, police said.
Cialella faces six charges that include attempted murder and aggravated assault. He remained in custody Saturday.
Lt. Frank Vanore called the incident "scary that it gets to that level of violence from being too noisy during a movie."
Vanore said the 31-year-old victim from suburban Yeadon was hospitalized in stable condition after the shooting.Â
Police could not confirm what movie was playing in the theater, but The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that it was "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button."
I can't imagine what that exchange must have been like.Â Did the guy tell them to shut up a couple of times first?Â It also seems like shooting someone would be a little more disruptive to the rest of the audience then a little whispering.Â Couldn't they have just made peace over some popcorn and Snowcaps?
