The Movie “ATL” Said To Cause Possible Behavior Problems In Theaters
This week’s opening of the urban drama “ATL” is causing a lot of pre-emptive activity among malls throughout Atlanta, where the movie was shot. A memo obtained by the city’s Channel 2 Action News reveals the company General Growth, which owns local malls Cumberland and Perimeter, sent a memo warning staff at its properties showing the film to “prepare” for its release on Friday, stating: “The movie could cause behavior problems among customers.” Greg Alexander, owner of Cascade Skating Rink where parts of the “ATL” were filmed, was shown the memo by Action News.

But from what I’ve seen in the movie trailer I don’t see how the hell this movie would make someone get ignorant in the theater. Now if they were talking about doing some mean roller skating tricks that another story.
