While many movie goers hate people that use cellphones in theaters, I see this being much more of a truth with horror movie fans. The darkness of the theater isn’t just to make the movie easier to see, it’s an extension of the film and grants us the opportunity to let us believe that something “evil” might be lurking behind us. Also, the sound in a horror movie is integral to providing scares. So when a ringtone goes off, to say that we’re sucked out of the movie is an understatement. It’s one of the biggest pet peeves I have and usually why I go to the theaters at 2pm. That way I can avoid large crowds and potential cellphone users.
