Add another thing to the list of ways ‘Millennials’ are ruining the world. The CEO of AMC Theatres, Adam Aron, announced that the rules preventing you from using your phone inside the movie theater may be going away.
“When you tell a 22-year-old to turn off the phone, don’t ruin the movie, they hear please cut off your left arm above the elbow,” He told Variety. “You can’t tell a 22-year-old to turn off their cellphone. That’s now how they live their life.”
He later added to his statement via Twitter.
No word yet on how they plan on lifting the theater cellphone ban.
“You can’t tell a 22-year-old to turn off their cellphone. That’s now how they live their life.” Really? So you’re saying you have no control over the environment of your movie theaters? Having worked with the former United Artist Theaters for 7 years, I know very well how the majority of customers feel … silence is golden. A person can “live their life” before or after a movie. If whatever it is can’t wait until a movie is over… you shouldn’t be in the movie, and should be handling your business. Period!
To even suggest the possibility of allowing texting in movies, defies logic.
