Samantha Tumpach should have listened to the Vatican when it said to stay away from the movie The New Moon, here. The 22-year-old woman was jailed and is facing felony charges after filming 4 minutes of the film at the surprise 29th Birthday party for her sister.
Tumpach had been filming the surprise party when the movie started. She then shot a few minutes of the film with her new camera, including the commercials. She is heard chatting in the background with the rest of the people in the party. That is when movie theater staff pulled her aside, called police and pressed charges.
I fail to see why Muvico Theater in Rosemont, Illinois could not use a degree of restraint or why prosecutors could not use a degree of common sense. Unless they thought that the party was an elaborate scam to tape the movie, a warning would seem to suffice. Clearly Rosemont must have a couple of real criminals to prosecute.
