Gala has once again proven how hip I am with a cool new underground discovery. But readers, you must promise not to tell the masses, so that it does not become mainstream… or maybe you should tell everyone, so this extremely entertaining new form of heckling can take off and entertain us all! It is called movie heckling, and it comes to us from MuVChat, a company that allows audiences to text all sorts of messages to a particular number, and have it displayed on the movie screen for all to see… as if today’s youth needed another platform to express their opinions. Similar to a Twitter feed, your comments are posted in a live feed right underneath the movie itself.
If you are interested in joining this elite group of movie hecklers, The Dali Museum will be holding a movie screening of “Twister” with this technology at their Surreal Summer Nights event. The first movie ,“The Batman” was a hit, with a perfect combination of ridiculousness from the movie itself and hilarity from the audience. One cannot forget the fact that this was the version featuring George Clooney in a skin tight bat suit. Members get free admission and a drink ticket to use at the cash bar (more details at TheDali.org); and if you do join in on the fun, make sure to bring your most humorous wit along with you.
