Well glad that's over.
Anyway do we know who made this idea in the first place? This makes it seem like common sense doesn't exist in this world anymore.
Which it probably doesn't, now that I think about it, but that's a conversation for another day.

what is the point of even going to a movie if you're just going to text through it?


movies are also really expensive, especially if you buy snacks. so basically those who text the whole movie are wasting their money

I disagree in both your points that are very much arguable. My phone makes no noise and no light distracts anyone even if they are close so I can text freely throughout the entire movie if I want and nobody has ever complained about it. So, there's a real life proven fact.

Second argument, an emergency is not controlled and sometimes you need to respond quickly and not go outside assuming if you can even go outside and not the person victim of an emergency trapped in a room because some brilliant guy decided to block signal within the room.

Also, you can control your coughing , laughing, and everything else. Try it right now, see if you can avoid coughing or avoid laughing at something...you can if you try! So, humans can control every little thing they do.

Done and argued with valid points.


How about not done and argued withh bullshit points. Seriously that crap only justifies anything while it's in that head of yours. In the real world that's nonsense.

First point. First of all I said some people and not all. Also some people just don't want to cause trouble in the middle of the movie and will stay quiet even if it bothers them. Secondly It's just a matter of showing people a little courtesy you asshole. Have you never heard of showing a little courtesy to the people around you? Or is it just you don't give a shit as long as you avoid any negative consequences?

second point. I said nothing about blocking the signal I just said if you need to answer a call you can exit the theater room and answer it. Leaving the room takes all of a few seconds especially if you rush. There is no reason you can't get up out of your seat before texting back to someone no matter how urgent it is. And if it's nor urgent then there is really no reason you can't just wait until the damn movie is over. Explain any instance where a text is SO important it can't wait the maximum of 10 seconds it would take to leave the room? And even if such a situation exists I highly doubt such events are common so for the sake of keeping the argument simple we'll consider them just a rare exception meaning they are no bearing on the general discussion of texting during a movie. So again in a general situation there is no reason you can't just wait until the movie is over or leave early.

You can control that stuff to a degree but it can be increasingly hard the more badly you need to do it until most people will be unable to. These are bodily functions and can be hard to control especially if you are trying to focus on the movie and not spend all of your effort holding back a cough. Also They still are distracting and should be avoided if possible so I'm not saying they are okay to do freely during a movie. It's just distractions like that can't really be helped but they really aren't that common. But either way this doesn't even matter in terms of what this thread is about so lets drop the coughing and laughing bit.

Done and proved how non valid your points were.

BTW you keep bringing up emergencies but if an emergency is really taht dire WTF are you doing texting in a movie threater?!? Get you ass out of that chair and go take care of it! If someone is texting you with an emergency clearly someone needs you! At the very least they need you undivided attention and you should go outside to focus on the emergency.

How nice for you.

We all got along just fine prior to cell phones. People who use them during a movie are rude, full stop.

But anyway, the point is moot as AMC has seen the backlash over this boneheaded idea and walked it back, as well they should.


Well, you go to AMC I'll go to a better theater that has more common sense and allows these freedoms available when you need them.


Uhhhhhh dude what rock have you been living under? No cinema allows texting during a movie. The only reason people get away with it is because no theater is going to waste the time and man power to actively enforce it all the time. They just come down on people who get reported by other movie goers for being a bother.

Also if you haven't noticed you are clearly lacking in the common sense as the majority of people in this thread as well as the backlash prove most people agree texting during a movie is bad. So it's funny you claim to be the one possessing common sense.


Lol, it's funny that you waste all that in a point you still haven't made and have to resort to profanity to make biase and illogical points. I pity you in all respects.

My points are clearly more valid than yours. Period!
