Local “funny guys” Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel, and Scott Aukerman will be live Twittering the midnite opening of “Crank: High Voltage” tonite at the AMC Burbank 16, and invite you to bring your cell phone and join them, or tweet from the theatre of your choice.

Yeah, you read this right: they’re actually encouraging people to text during a movie! What kind of assholes would do such a thing?

Answer: apparently, assholes with rules. The flier for the “Twitpix” event has a few tips, including sitting in the back row so as not to disturb fellow film goers, and if someone complains to either comply or move. More here.

BTW, the guys behind this are pretty tight with that whole UCB Comedy Death Ray thing, so expect some special guests to show up.

  1. I’m kind of glad to see some rules. I’ve been kind of distracted and annoyed by all of the twittering/texting/whatever going on during the Paley Festival events. Granted, I may turn into a hypocrite and do the same during the Battlestar Galactica/Caprica panel!

  2. I think its one thing during a panel discussion, but when the lights are down and images are being projected on the screen, I don’t want to see the distracting blasts of light from cellphones.

  3. I see what you’re saying, but honestly the lights are pretty much down during the panels until they open it to audience questions. It was probably annoying because it was people on either side of us.
