Man shot for eating popcorn during Black Swan

200x190.jpgNo-one likes having their cinema experience ruined someone noisily munching on popcorn when they're trying to watch a movie.

But most of us simply tut at the eating offender and carry on. Not so in Latvia, where a man has been shot dead after a popcorn-based argument.

It's been reported that an argument broke out during a screening of Black Swan in Riga, centred around the volume at which someone was eating their cinema treat.

As the credits rolled, the fight is said to have become heated and seen a gun fired. Police say a 42-year-old man has since died and a 27-year-old was arrested.

While we're all in favour of enforcing the Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo Code of Conduct… it's safe to say this is probably going a bit too far.
The fight and shooting happened on Saturday evening in the central multiplex cinema in the Latvian capital.
