MUST READ!!! Kansas City County Club Plaza 'Ride Along' Movie Theater Testimony!!!



Here's an important confirmation and just a bit of insight on the current state of Kansas City's County Club Plaza according to one AWESOME TKC TIPSTER . . .

"TKC, just wanted to send you a word about last night on the plaza. 

Caught the 9:10 showing of Ride Along with a few friends and I have no idea what happened in that movie. You simply couldn't hear a word. Also, they started it late and the half and hour of previews didn't let the movie begin until after 10 which is ridiculous. Before I say anything more, I need to tell you that I'm not a racist and I completely expected that there would be some good-spirited chatter in the movie. Nothing wrong with that . . .

The movie theater was more like chaos and I was tempted to ask for my money back because of the mess. People were on their cell phones, talking to each other across the theater and the movie was the last thing on people's mind. I also want you to know that I attended the movie with my black friends and they said the felt the same way. There were a few minor scuffles and some tough talk but I didn't see any violence thankfully. 

But I'll say this. There is no question about it. The plaza needs to bring back their 18 and over policy. It was more like a babysitting event down there. Can't imagine how that movie theater continues to stay open."

To be fair, Ride Along was the #1 movie in the nation this weekend so it's not unheard of for it to be packed across the metro. Still, we start another year with a preview of tension on The Plaza that has not subsided.

Used to be a nice evening on the Plaza. Supper at Harry Starkers, few drinks at Longbranch, movie.

Your tipster is stupid if he went to that theater expecting to hear anything but the yelling of other people.

Yeah, I'm a racist.

I don't get out much and rarely shake off my White Male Reality.

People were on their cell phones, talking to each other across the theater and the movie was the last thing on people's mind.

Welcome to moviegoing, 2014.

I attended the movie with my black friends

Not my friends, but my black friends. They're black. So I'm not a racist. Because they're black you see and I point that out to them all the time. "You are my black friends."

This is a pretty lame attempt to cover up Colonel Slander's "Plaza Riot" post of last night, which was totally intended to not be real, but instead we kind of proved him to be a sucker.

There's more.

Might as well put a South Pole outlet store and a Kool-aid stand down there.

Shit, if Highwoods thought they could squeeze a dollar out of it they would have already done it.

The movie theater at Crown Center didn't survive. Not much chance for the Plaza. Punks and thugs rule the day.

If there is one thing I've learned over time, black folks don't give a shit about anything but themselves and the "roos" (rules) don't apply to them.

It sounds like the other patrons had a good time. Isn't that just terrible. They talked to each other instead of ignoring each other. Isn't that just terrible.

Build a theater, sneaker store, rap record store, sporting wear outlet over at Emanuel Cleaver Boulevard and Paseo with it's own fountain park.

As is typical of most of the trash Hollywood puts out these days it's not the message it's how much cash it rakes in.

Apparently, the movie wasn't very interesting.

There's Byron, defending the animals that ruin a good thing for good people. Byron is black and hates white people who spend money and keep businesses open. Your black thugs ruin everything!

Yes, Byron, it is terrible and rude for people to talk during a film. And it's not just something black people do. Last time I went to a movie (at the Plaza about ten years ago) a fat white fuck next to me took a call during the film.

You know the ex-cop who shot a (white) guy texting during a movie? I think that was justifiable. My solution is to wait for movies I want to see to come out on DVD and get them from the library. It's just too expensive to go to a theater and not be able to watch and listen to what I've paid to see.

And 3:30, you're just an idiot.

You mean welcome to 2014 movies with negroes. White folks respect other people and are quiet during movies asshole.

Someone with an IQ of 129 thinks it's OK to talk during movies? Obviously this guy scored zero on the social skills test.

This is why you shoot motherfuckers who disturb your peace and quiet during the movies. We need more of that behavior. Hope the shooter gets off.

The Plaza has really gone downhill since the foreign ownership.

People in movie theaters these days got no manners, talking and phoning and texting. If you think that's a black thing, you haven't been in a theater full of white suburbanites. That's why nobody goes to movies anymore.

Actually, I'm white & I'm poor, & I don't care about whiny middle class people & their sense of entitlement.

Everybody be quiet, middle class pussies are watching a movie!

Every time a gun man kills an unarmed man, it always seems to be the victim's fault.

Its just amazing how people won't do what you want them to do, poor babies.

Be quiet, I WORKED and paid for this ticket, common curiosity.
Armed man gets attacked by unarmed man, usually victim's fault
You are poor because you don't want to work,blame everybody but yourself.

Tony I am so god damn tired of seeing Byron Funkhouser’s shit on these posts all the time. He is ruining your site. He is not from around here and adds nothing to this local blog. His insight is hateful as a rule and does not reflect the views of people or events of Kansas City. He has gotten to the point he only posts to incite and anger people for his own benefit.

Wow, you know how to use a phone book. I'm impressed. When you call them & tell them they should arrest me, they will want to know what crime you think I have committed. Or do you still believe in this "welfare fraud" nonsense? That's not there department. The Social Security Office in Kansas City is where you want to go. Or are you going to tell them I'm "bat shit crazy"? That's not their department either. Be warned, they may laugh at you.

Or, are you going to simply tell them the truth, "He upsets people with the comments he makes on a blog in Kansas City"? Be warned the Chief of Police is a black man. So, be careful how you put that.

Bottom Line: You're a pathetic little pussy. You can tell them I said so.

I was beaten up so much when I was a little boy, by 'brother' Mark, & dear old Dad, that as an adult I've never lost a fight. Funny how it works out that way, huh. I can touch type, that's probably a lost art now with everyone using their thumbs on the dumb phones.

Hey, little pussy. I've enjoyed our little game of tag. But, I sleep when I'm able, & when I'm able I sleep. Good night, little pussy.

The solution is to attend an "adults only" theater. The only children who are admitted are with parents. At some of them, you can even get an adult beverage.
Why would anybody go down to the Plaza to see a trash movie likd this unless they were trash them selves. Sorry, I dont buy that this guy didn't know what he was getting into. Didn't he read the TKC blog over the past week?
The solution is to STAY AWAY from the Plaza on a Saturday night when the weather is good. I know it is gonna to mean that the Plaza will be going the way of Bannister Mall. I truly don't care. Their choice. I choose not to participate, just like I don't participate in "clubs", public school, or any other venue east of Troost. Why should I?

Yes, Byron. Since 1927 when people pay to see a movie they expect to be able to hear it was well. You've lost what little credibility you had with me (and that's not saying much) by not being able to comprehend basic consideration for others.

And 4:23, it doesn't do any good these days to go to an adults only theater. Today's adults don't act like adults when it comes to cell phones. I was at a Quality Hill Playhouse show once, and Kent Barnhart took the batteries out of some offending patron's phone. That's the way to handle these morons. As for Byron, I think the best way to handle him is to ignore him if such a cretin actually exists, which is admittedly hard to believe.

129 indeed!

Byron hates himself and everything he is, so why should we not simply leave him to his self-loathing. He's a 21st Century Miniver Cheevy.

As for the brilliant comment, "if you don't like black people then don't go out in public," Byron might want to consider all the black middle and upper class folk who pay their money and want to see and hear a show. I guess they're confined to their quarters along with us white folk.

129 my ass.

Byron Nelson was a famous professional golfer. Ever heard of the Byron Nelson Open.

Byron White was a Supreme Court Judge. He was a famous college football player before that.

You're not the first dumbasses to come here & decide that I MUST be black. Of course, since you're a liar, you will always assume that everyone else is lying.

8:50, there is no way you can make people do what you want them to do. An adult should just accept that. If you don't like the movie experience in that theater, then don't go.

I don't wish that I were white. I wish a were full blooded Shawnee. You racist make everyone ashamed & embarrassed to be white. White history is horrific, in case you haven't noticed.

"I don't wish that I were white."

"White history is horrific."

White history is horrific and great. (As is black history, native American history, Asian history, etc.) Nothing is 100% black or white or good or evil. You could spend some of the time you're wasting posting inanities on TKC to actually study history. And you've just admitted to being a self-loathing inbred.

129 totally out of the question.
