Georgie From ‘IT’ Has Some Words for People Who Talk During Movies
The Alamo Drafthouse is a fun, chill venue full of burgers and boozy milkshakes that provides one of the most unique moviegoing experiences out there, but they’re very strict about two things: That talking and texting during the movie nonsense? Don’t do it. Just take it from Georgie, the ridiculously cherubic child from this fall’s horror sensation It.
When he stopped by a screening of the fantastic new Stephen King adaptation last week, the Alamo Drafthouse’s Phoenix location took actor Jackson Robert Scott aside to film a special PSA for the theater. The short PSA takes a cue from one of the most terrifying scenes in the movie, when Georgie’s older brother Bill (Jaeden Lieberher) finds his spectral little brother standing in his basement, his yells of “You’ll float too!!” getting increasingly more alarming as Pennywise lurks in the floodwaters waiting to grab Bill by the ankles.
So, don’t talk or text at the Alamo Drafthouse (of any theater really, come on, be respectful) or Pennywise the Dancing Clown is gonna gitcha.
