Man shot dead during “Black Swan” screening

Black Swan

Darren Aronofsky films typically provide intense cinematic experiences, but one Latvian man didn't even make it out of the theater alive during a recent showing of Black Swan. The forty-two-year-old man was shot dead after getting into an argument with a fellow filmgoer for supposedly chewing his popcorn too loudly. Sounds like the audience got two thrillers for the price of one that night. I wish I could say a tragic incident like this was some performance piece or a Banksy stunt. But no, a man actually lost his life over snack food. Makes you think twice about going to the concession stand next time.
