cell phones in theaters: there oughta be a law

on the drive with kenny jones – we discussed my recent outing to the cinema to catch hp-6 (the half blood prince).  the flick was pretty good but the experience was more horrifying than he-who-shall-not-be-named.

talking on phone at movies

it actually happens every time i go to the movies…so why should last night be any different.  i’m always confronted with the incredibly annoying sound of someone’s cell phone ringing during a movie.  there outta be a law against this kinda thing.

the question is, is there a way to avoid this so everybody that isn’t taking calls in the middle of the film can enjoy the movie?  find out what the drive contingent had to say about the matter…

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

the answer is to the question above is – NO!  there will always be some yahoo that can’t go an hour and fifty minutes without talking a cell phone call.

i’m of the opinion that if someone answers a cell phone call during a movie the rest of the audience reserves the right to tear it from his/her hands and smash the device to bits.  if they obviously don’t  understand common courtesy – so they need to be taught.

smashed-cell-phone

the bottom line – it’s up to the movie goer to use common sense and not use their mobile at the cinema and defnitely not DURING the movie.  so until they blanket the theatre with some sort of mobile phone force field that blocks cell signals, you’re going to have to endure the ass behind you yammering away on his cell while you’re trying to get your 12 bucks out of the experience.

here are my top five movie going pet peeves:

  1. people on cell phones during the movie
  2. someone kicking the back of my chair
  3. babies crying during the movie
  4. obnoxious people talking during the film
  5. the noisy eater

there are plenty more – but that should get us started.  how about you?  what drives you nuts at the cinema?

catch the drive with kenny jones – weekdays from 4-7pm exclusively on beat-fm 102.5 and online at mybeat.fm.

  9. Cell phones must be turned off for the duration of the film. Pulling them out to check the time, view messages or photos or to play a game (even if it is on silent) are not valid reasons for allowing the light emitting from your phone screen to disturb other guests. As for the debate on “What if there is an emergency?”, should you really be in the theater if you are expecting one? Saying you have a relative in poor health or a child who is not with you does not excuse you from ruining the movie experience for everyone else. Why would you pay top dollar to go to the theater to not watch the movie and disturb other guests at the same time when you can not watch the movie and disturb none of those guests outside the theater? For years movie-goers have enjoyed their films in a cell phone free environment. It was called “the-time-before-cell-phones”. No one had one, yet they persevered and prospered.
