Cellular Phones at the Movies

by Devanshu Mehta

I just put up rant on “WideScreen Glory”:http://www.widescreenglory.com about the ridiculous push by theatre owners to “jam cell phones in movie theatres”:http://www.widescreenglory.com/2005/12/21/jamming-cell-phone-signals-at-the-movies/. From “that article”:http://www.widescreenglory.com/2005/12/21/jamming-cell-phone-signals-at-the-movies/

The annoying, distracting, place-reserved-in-hell, cell phone users are not the cause (of the movie industry slump); they are a nail in the coffin. […] In the past, the government tried to ban cell phones on airplanes based on the loosely defined threat of terrorists with phones. As with that case, the benefit of allowing decent people to keep their cell phones at their discretion far outweighs the annoyances of movie cell phone users.
