Good reasons for using cell phone jammers in cinemas and theaters
Usually, when entering a movie theater or theater, turning off the mobile phone is the most basic ceremony. However, in any case, some people will ignore these rituals and rules. Yes, when you watch a movie, you are always interrupted.
Try to convince people to observe the most basic social considerations in the movie. If you have visited a theater recently, you know they are often overlooked, so other methods have been explored to enforce theater ethics.
For new and popular movies, the theater may have a separate auditorium to block cell phone use, but the auditorium does not block the signal. This is more like the tradition of non-smoking areas in restaurants nowadays. Although the use of mobile phones is still discouraged in closed auditoriums, those who choose to watch movies will have to deal with occasional distractions.
Why use a cell phone jammer?
Hollywood film blogger Alex Billington (Alex Billington) is one of many people who rejoice in the rapid retreat of AMC. "Texting in the theater completely ruined the movie," he said. "This is something we must fight on the social and cultural level."
In 2014, a dispute between two men texting at a movie theater in Florida eventually led to a fatal shooting. Although this is an extreme situation, most people would agree that the glowing cell phone screen and finger taps can be irritating.
The phone is not just a hassle in the cinema. When Benedict Cumberbatch played Hamlet in Barbican, he finally added a monologue, lamenting the tragedy of cellphone cameras and urging his fans to put down their phones. Some performers take the problem of disruptive technology completely in their own hands.
Have these people never participated in a movie so fully, or felt so deeply involved in a story that when something sounds or shakes or lights up a few seats, they don’t feel a momentary resentment, Shattered this spell? The problem started with a lack of respect for seat partners, or lack of respect for the entertainment media itself?
Of course, the reality is that all of these are important. In an era when we are forever consumed by our personal technology, the theater can and should be our last public refuge, and we can only be affected in movies and films. If that vision comes from a nostalgic or naive place, then this place is still a space for all of us, sitting proudly and provocatively in the dark.
Personally, I think that theaters should be allowed to install jammers, and there are clear signs that they are being used. If people don't like this, they are free to spend money elsewhere. If all theaters eventually use the technology, then these people can choose not to go to the movies.
