Don’t talk during movies in South Philly – it can get you shot

I haven’t seen the inside of a movie theatre for a long time but even when I was there was nothing more irritating that the jerk off in front of you who felt the need to pontificate all the way through the movie. That said I think the idea of shooting someone for committing such a social crime is just a tad extreme. Unfortunately one James Joseph Cialella, a 29 year old movie goer in South Philly got more than a little pissed at his watching of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button kept being interrupted by a father and son sitting in front of him wouldn’t shut the hell up.

When even throwing popcorn at them produced no satisfactory results he got up pulled out a Kel-Tec .380 and shot the man in the arm. The warped part is that once he had shot the man he went back and sat down to watch the rest of the movie, which is where the police found him when they showed up at the scene. Cialella has been charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and weapons violations.
