Christians to Ruin Movie for Paying Customers

It is a hot summer day, and you and a friend or significant other decide to escape into the cool confines of your local movie theater. Your companion has convinced you to see Angels and Demons, and while you are not particularly excited about it, you find yourself inside the theater and out the outrageous price they are charging for movies these days. As the movie begins, the theater erupts in craziness as a pair of Christians stand up in front of the screen and begin yelling some sort of religiously-inspired gibberish. What do you do?

No, this didn't happen to me. As bad as the Da Vinci Code was, nobody is talking me into seeing this one. But it just might happen to you. You see, a Christian group calling themselves “The Resistance” is planning to disrupt screenings of Angels and Demons. Evidently, something about the film offends them to the point where they've decided that ruining it for others is the way to go.

Honestly, I have a difficult time imagining how I'd respond in such a situation. Let me rephrase, I have a difficult time imagining how I'd respond in such a way that didn't end with me being led away in handcuffs.
