The Best “Be Quiet” PSA Ever

Granted, I’m biased, but this fantastic PSA from Alamo Drafthouse asking theater patrons to please shut up proves, not for the first time, a couple of things: 1) Julie Delpy is very funny, and 2) Ethan Hawke has a sense of humor about himself (and his Before Midnight character Jesse).

Enjoy. And please, don’t talk.
