A WOMAN has been banned from her local arthouse cinema for eating a big bag of Revels.
22-year-old Susan Traherne took the offending chocolate treat into an evening showing of Dheepan in Leicester, despite knowing it was a Palme d’Or winner about survivors of the Sri Lankan civil war.
Film-lover Tom Logan said: “I heard rustling, but wrongly assumed she was making notes about the symbolism of the recurring elephants.
“I looked round and saw her stuffing Revels into her mouth like she was watching Fast & Furious at a multiplex.
“Her horrendous gnashing meant I could hardly hear the muttered, deliberately mundane dialogue.”
He added: “It ruined the film for me, making it seem really long, slow and boring. And I shall be writing to ‘Revels’.”
Traherne said: “What am I supposed to eat in there? An avocado?”
