Several Hasidic Jews covered up a a movie screen while aboard a flight, Yeshiva World reported this week.
The reasons for their actions are not certain, but it would be reasonable to assume that they were concerned about modesty issues. Many ultra-Orthodox men refrain from viewing films with women in them, due to modesty concerns.
The end of the video shows a number of the smaller video screens on the plane concealed by blankets, as well.
The movie in question was the 2007 Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore film Music and Lyrics.
The group placed blankets over the movie screens amidst cheers from the rest of the hasidic passengers.
The video was first put online by a website called the Yeshiva World and has since been reported by websites all over the world.
