Okay, if everyone is complaining about this, then who is doing the calling and the talking?...Come on now, raise your hand if you are guilty.

Hey ionce saw a movie with a grand total of 3 people in the theather...I could have yelled into the phone and the 3 people 15 rows away could not have cared less...maybe the trick is to catch a movie at noon if you want to talk on the phone.

Gotham lol >_> all the movies I go to are like 3/4 filled, so if anybody rings their phone or something somebody from the back row goes "turn your f**king phone off you dipsh*t!" or something along the lines of that. Even at the beginning of the movie, it says "please turn off your mobile phones. If you are kicked out then its your fault not ours" or something along the lines of that.

Either have the ringer on silent or turn it off!

In a theatre, it's even more annoying than in a nice restaurant ...but that's right up there too!

I've only had it happen to me once, someone actually answering their phone. But I've seen people playing with their phones quite a few times, the screen light up and disruptive.

I think anyone who uses a mobile phone in the cinema, whether its calling or recieving should be shot. It's not nessesary, whats the point in ruining a good film with a phone call.

Oh, this has happened quite a few times. I have gone into the cinema and all of a sudden someone close to me starts to make a phone call, then another time someone got a call while in the middle of this film i was watching. Its very rude in my opinion.

I'd pay extra money to have a cell jammer in the theater for things like this.

It is sort of irritating to leave, find a manager, miss the movie - all for someone who should know better. And does know better, so probably doesn't care and will just do it again once the theatre employee leaves.

exactly - and all the theaters I've been to put up a HUGE notice to shut the pagers and phones off...

unless someone's calling for a medical emergency and only then - I'd put up the jammers and let them whine!

I see this way to much, people need to chill out on the excessive cell phone use.

exactly - WHAT'S wrong with saying to someone - "Hey, I'm going to a movie and I can't talk to you".

what's so important that it can't wait an hour or two until you get out of the theater - especially for yakky teenagers who just want to look cool...

Do not even get me started on that because it drives me crazy. Sometimes when people start to do that I want to hurt them or break their phone. I think they should be banned for 30 days if they get caught.

I love the way New Yorkers handle it ...and they know words that would make a longshoreman cringe!
