Vezmar says the woman left the theater and never came back, leaving him stranded as they'd driven to the theater in her vehicle.

He claims that his date "activated her phone at least 10-20 times in 15 minutes to read and send text messages" during a screening of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, The Austin America-Statesman reported this week.

Vezmar, who said he paid $17.31 for each ticket, contacted Cruz the next day demanding the money back. "It was kind of a first date from hell".

Mr Vezmar filed the petition in the state capital of Austin last week seeking $17.31 (£13.30), arguing his date's behaviour was "a threat to civilised society". According to his lawsuit - yes, he's suing her! - his date started texting about 15 minutes into the movie.

Leaving in her vehicle - in which they had driven in together on the date - Brandon was left stranded in the cinema.

She said she refused to pay Mr Vezmar back when he called her asking for compensation because "he took me out on a date".

He claims she was interrupting his cinema experience by texting. She was messaging a friend who was having a fight with her boyfriend, she added.

The woman left and did not return, he said.

He said he told her that maybe she could go outside to text. "I just went out on a date".

"I've seen people get kicked out of movies for this", he said.

The petition claims, "While damages sought are modest, the principle is important as defendant's behavior is a threat to civilized society". "I'm not a bad woman".

"Let me move on with my life, I'll do whatever it takes,"Cruz said".

"I am fully aware of the weirdness of this situation", Vezmar told KVUE.

The CEO of the cinema has offered to compensate Vezmar with the amount in a gift certificate if he drops the lawsuit.
