Only last weekend, I was telling my kids as we waited for Zootopia to start that, apart from the perennial problem of people who manage to make 15 seconds of loud plastic crinkling to reach just one bit of candy (and take an hour to eat one bag thereof), my latest noticed cinema going anti-social obscenity is the person who decides to light up their mobile screen and text in the middle of a film.
And many readers of the Guardian agree. Some funny/sarcastic responses to this column:
I hope the theaters who allow/encourage phone/other gizmo use duringand
film showings are confiscating all weapons at the door, cause this kind
of thing is really going to bring out that kind of thing.
Also I miss the drive in experience, so can I bring my truck into the theater as well? Oh, and I never want to see a movie without my howler monkey(s), who love to sit in the back of the pick up and "sing" during a film - people love it!
Amber you are so smart and revolutionary!
