Don't Kill James Franco's Father

Alamo Drafthouse drops a new no-talking PSA

Don't Kill James Franco's Father

Starting Friday, there's a new face telling you to keep your mouth shut and your phone off during Alamo Drafthouse features: James Franco.

To mark the beginning of the new Drafthouse Recommends series – featuring "groundbreaking, innovative and intelligent films" and kicking off with Franco's latest, Spring Breakers – the Drafthouse got Franco to record a new no-talking PSA while he was in town for South by Southwest. Check it out first here (warning: some foul language):

DON'T TALK - JAMES FRANCO from Alamo Drafthouse on Vimeo.

So there you have it. Yes Royale with Cheese, yes hot dogs, yes popcorn. But no talking, no texting, no Instagramming, and certainly no killing James Franco's father. Got it? Good.
