Morphsuits Help Bust Noisy People at the Prince Charles Theatre

For those people who enjoy leaving their phones on during a movie, London's Prince Charles Cinema has recruited volunteers to dress up in black Lycra 'Morphsuits' to blend in with the dark and hunt for noisemakers.

Morphsuits are full-body spandex that cover you from head to toe. You are able to breathe and see through them just fine, but nobody is able to see you, presenting a perfect opportunity for sneaking around, acting a fool or just creating a scene in a public place. The founder of Morphsuits, Greg Lawson, suggested having people dress up in the all-black suits to control noise at the Prince Charles Cinema as a marketing idea and it took off. The volunteers, deemed "Cinema Ninjas" due to their camouflaged suits and unexpected appearance, hide in the dark corners of the cinema and wait until the movie has started. Once they hear the un-welcomed chatter of mouthy patrons, or the annoying buzzing of a cell phone they take flight, zoning in on the target and giving them a startling/extremely comical warning.
