Is Just Silencing Phones in Theaters Enough?

Last week comedians Aziz Ansari and Paul Scheer conducted an experiment and Twittered their thoughts during a screening of Crank 2: High Voltage. One prominent blogger was not happy when he heard this and used his own Twitter account to voice his outrage, saying, "Movie theaters are places to leave the outside world behind."

Are you cool with people keeping their phones on in the theater to text and/or Twitter? I know some people only care about the disruption of sound, but does the light from cell phones distract you from the show? Do you think people should put their phones away and keep them away?

@Anon filmmaker - I hope your films are better than your reading comprehension. I said that I do not text in movies, however I don't care if others do.

Don't sweat the small stuff. As long as it's silent it doesn't bother me. You can't police everything everybody does. Peace....

@ Kay Lynn - I love going to the cinema because I enjoy the experience - big screen etc. etc. - Why should I have to stay at home because of other people's annoying habits - With people coughing/ eating loudly, it's annoying but I guess they can't help it - but with incessant texting - you're clearly not there to enjoy the cinematic experience - so THEY should watch the movie at home - not the rest of us who actually understand a thing or two about common courtesy.
