We’ve all seen the promos in movie theaters, asking those with mobile phones to refrain from texting during the movie. It is only common courtesy. After all, people paid good money to see the movie. Even the light from the screen can distract your fellow movie goers. What if there is a sad scene playing and someone sends you a funny text? You don’t want to laugh when someone is dying on screen and your fellow moviegoers are all in tears.
While most theater chains treat texters like they are criminals, AMC is considering welcoming these people. They are thinking about converting the back row of all of AMC’s 400 cinemas to texting aisles. They would use soundproofing and a barrier to prevent the light of the screens leaking out and annoy others. Anyone sitting in the row will be able to text throughout the entire movie and not be a bother.
Regal and Imax are also looking at ways to allow text messages to be sent during a movie without distracting everyone. It’s not a bad idea, but why should they have to police texters, when just a little restraint would solve the whole thing? Oh well, it’s their dime.
