Not so with one particularly annoyed film fan at the Toronto International Film Festival. On Monday, Alex Billington became incensed that some audience members continued to text and email during the screening of The Sacrament. When the theater’s managers failed to respond to his satisfaction, he called the cops, the Associated Press noted.

Billington indicated that the 911 operator dismissed his report with laughter.

Undeterred, he promptly aired his complaints on Twitter, explaining that he feared that some in the audience were actually recording the film.

Last month, an aspiring rapper in Colorado managed to record a song about his confrontation with the police, while he was actually in a confrontation with local cops, who had surrounded his house.
