Cell Distractions

A note to those who text-message in movie theatres with stadium seating:

Please stop it.

Everyone behind you can see your phone.

It's a dark theatre. It's a bright light. Work it out.

It's distracting.

If the message is so crucial that you must take it now, step outside.

If the movie is so boring that you must entertain yourself by messaging your friends, please leave.

And if you're in the Arclight or another "black box" theatre, where patrons pay extra for perfect viewing conditions, and all distracting lights have been eliminated -- why create one?

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Oh yes, that is really distracting AND annoying. It seems worse at the Arclight than other theatres, though.
