Do you text or talk on your phone during a movie?

You might wanna think twice after seeing this PSA made by the Alamo Theater in Austin, TX.

  • I saw that earlier, very funny! And no I don't call/text during movies. I pay for the movie so dang it I am gonna watch it, lol. Depending on who is with me at the movie, I will either shut the phone off or put it on vibrate. If my son or husband are not with me I will just set it to vibrate, if they both are I shut it off!

  • I keep my phone on vibrate in case of emergencies but I never talk or text and when I do get a call I hurry out to answer it so I do not disturb other people.

  • I get distracted when people look at their phones during a movie and the light from the phone lights up the whole area.

  • I love the end of the clip the best - "Thanks for not coming back to the Alamo Drafthouse, texter!"

    I agree. I HATE it when people text during movies. Talking is less prevalent, and more universally realized to be rude, but the flicking lights of texting is so distracting.
