  • SeaWorld Visitor Numbers Fell By Half A Million

    Published: Wed, Nov 12, 2014

    SeaWorld Entertainment has had another disappointing quarter, with revenue and attendance decline as the public continues to sour on the theme park following accusations of animal cruelty and endangerment of trainers in the hit documentary "Blackfish," according to BuzzFeed. The company’s revenue for the third quarter fell 8% to $496 million, while profits of $87 million fell 28% from a year ago. The driver of the poor performance is flagging attendance, which fell by 500,000 to 8.4 million. The company said that the attendance decline is due to a “combination of factors” including “negative media attention in California along with a challenging competitive environment, particularly in Florida.” In March, a California lawmaker proposed a bill that would ban live orca performances in the state, thus reviving the negative press brought on Blackfish in one of SeaWorld’s largest markets.

    Published: Tue, Nov 11, 2014

    A man who asked a woman to turn off her cell phone at a Monday night screening of "Mr. Turner" was maced in the face following an awkward confrontation, according to Mashable. The American Film Institute screening of the biopic at the TCL Chinese theater in Hollywood had just gotten underway when a man near the back row asked a woman sitting in front of her to turn off her phone, whose screen was visibly glowing.

After repeating himself several times, and without a response, the man then tapped the woman on the shoulder.
