    One thing they don’t tell you about the Alamo Drafthouse is that, if you order food, the waiter then has to check back in with you to see if you want anything else before dropping off the check. And, lacking any other system, apparently that has to happened before the end of the film. Perhaps even during that climax. So the theater obsessed with eradicating any form of distraction actually has a system in place whereby someone has to stand between you and the screen, talk to you, and require a response, all during the movie. Makes no damn sense, and far more distracting than any cell phone I’ve encountered.

      That was something I was wondering myself. You hear comedians talk about the “check drop” being a very distracting part of their show, because it gets people thinking about money and calculating tips, all while the comedian ramps up to his last big bit. When I first heard that Alamo Drafthouse did this, it seemed- as you said- like the exact opposite of their mission statement.
