A London cinema has hired a 'Ninja Task Force' to target bad behavior during its films.

The Prince Charles Cinema in Leicester Square has teamed up with Morphsuits for the scheme.





Morphsuits contacted the cinema to trial the scheme, and the cinema has since recruited a team of volunteers to "guard" films. In return, the volunteers get to watch the films for free.

Morphsuits co-founder Gregor Lawson commented: "I'm a big fan of going to the cinema, but there's an unspoken code of conduct when you're watching a movie that some people just don't understand."

He also described his "eureka moment", saying: "When some fans were discussing being ninjas in their Morphsuits on our Facebook page I had a eureka moment. I thought I'd find a cinema and see if we could bring a light-hearted task force to the aid of movie fans."

Paul Vickery, head of PR at the cinema, said: "The 'Cinema Ninjas' may sound ludicrous, but they have been a real success in clamping down on those ruining films for everyone else with inconsiderate behavior."




The 'ninjas', dressed in black all-in-one Lycra suits, place themselves in the darkest areas of the cinema before tackling inconsiderate behavior such as talking or the use of mobile phones.

Cinema-goer Abdul Stagg described the moment two Lycra-clad figures appeared beside him as "terrifying". He had accepted a phone call as the film was about to start.

Morphsuits hope to roll the scheme out nationwide to help other cinemas tackle the issue.

Yes.
 
Please let this be adopted in Canada.

Would you believe that the most obnoxious behaviour I've experienced at a movie theatre lately was at Hope Springs? Before that, it was Midnight In Paris?

I swear to god, middle-aged movie audiences are the worst. At least I know I can call them out without starting a fight I can't win though.
 
theater-sponsored ninjas used to confront as*h*les that text, don't shut their phone off or can't shut the f**k up in the theater or cinema during the film...

confrontations like that works for me and I love it...

saves ME the problem of telling them off myself, which I've done several times in the past...
 
I'll volunteer. And I'll bring my own Ninja suit too!
 
I'm sure people will talk and whatnot just to see if they can take a look at that ninja hiding in the corner.

The ninjas should use their ninja stars afterwards.
 
once this becomes a known thing, dont you think people are gonna try to make a commotion just in an attempt to incite a reaction from these "ninjas"? resulting in a bigger distraction than would have occurred had the ninjas not existed in the first place?

That's what I say.

There's no way something like this could go wrong.
 
Uh...people talking in the theater is a good thing, depending on movie. Comedy, action, horror means people will talk.

When I watch General Hospital I say D-bag and OH **** out loud.

I saw MINDHUNTERS in theaters once...I remember this guy saying out loud 'Ass' and I agree. That is Slater's ass in the shower. Best part of the theater experience was that comment. And don't you dare misquote me...
 
I hate it when people talk during a film. I pay $20 for the film, not to listen to some moron who cannot keep his mouth closed. Talking during a film is never a good thing. They do not need to hire ninjas, just eject the a**holes.

This will work great until someone has a heart attack from a ninja "silencing" them and dies.

I'm all for it.
 
I'm definitely all for this.
 
I want to see photos/videos of these ninjas operating... That would be quite a laugh.
 
Forget the cinemas. I wish the area I live in had these guys to roam around.
