Boycott Muvico

A Muvico theatre in the Chicago area pressed charges for a woman taping friends and family singing "Happy Birthday" in the theatre. She incidentally got a short snippet of "Twilight New Moon" in the background. As a result, she spent two nights in jail and faces a felony charge. This is completely ludicrous, and I for one will not be attending any Muvico Theatres until Muvico drops all charges.

Lauren Weinstein's Commentary:

Note: I don't know what they were doing singing after the movie started, and that is, to say the least, rude (even with a film as terrible as Twilight). But she wasn't charged with making a public nuisance, disturbing the peace, or the like.

The boycott of Muvico should go Viral.

I certainly hope it does.

I am a huge fan of Muvico Egyptian 24 at Arundel Mills and if the Chicago theater is similar in layout, it would be odd that a group of individuals would sing happy birthday while the movie is in progress.
