Alan Partridge Gives A Lesson In Cinema Etiquette

I love going to the cinema.

But there are a lot of things about the experience that frequently annoy me, including but certainly not limited to, people using their mobile phones in any way at all.

There are a number of adverts that play in cinemas in the UK that tell people prior to the film that they should turn their phones off. Sadly they often don’t work. People don’t notice them as they’re too busy on their phone, I assume.

I imagine they are probably more effective when they have actors/characters in that people recognise. People are more likely to look up perhaps.

Lets hope this new one featuring Alan Partridge does the job.


Yeah, don’t use your phone when you’re driving either.

Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa will be released in UK cinemas on the 7th of August.
