Another reason why I don't go to movie theaters.

The previews tell you a million times to turn off your cell phones or put it in "silent" mode. If you're going to sit in a theater for two hours can't you tell your friends ahead of time this?

Waiting for the "I have a right to carry a cell phone anywhere because I'm a doctor or nurse on call" crowd to chime in.

If someone wants to take an aisle seat, sets the phone on vibrate, and make a quick but orderly exit when a call comes in, I would have no problem with that. Arrive in adquate time to ensure that either an aisle seat will be open, there will be time to politely try to find someone who will yield one, or there will be time to ask management what to do.

I have commented on previous threads about the right to carry a cell phone whenever and wherever you want, and about the illegal use of jammers, which I am against.

While I am against illegal jamming, I am also against assholes. The woman on the phone can only be described this way. If I were a judge and the case came before me, I would dismiss all charges against the Australian lady and fine the other woman the maximum amount allowable by law. It isn't that difficult to turn off a phone or silence it in a theater. It's also the polite and proper thing to do. Anyone who refuses to do so should be asked to leave. Anyone who refuses to leave after being asked should be arrested.

They can put their phone on vibrate and sit where they can leave the theater to answer the call without causing a disturbance.

I'm a doc and I don't go to the theater if I am on call. Also I have in my office signs telling patients to turn off their phones.......I'm tired of being interrupted by trivial calls. If they don't I cancel their appointment.
