Yep, totally agree Lupo - I can't imagine anyone would answer a phone call without leaving the cinema, so if it is THAT important, why can't they leave the cinema to read or reply to a text? (assuming it doesn't cause too much of a disturbance to the other people in their row/ sat behind them...

If the staff at the Empire do this and consficate phones off people who are irrtitating the hell out of other Frightfesters. Make a bit of a example out them. There should be no if's or buts.

As already mentioned in earlier posts. Why do people go to the cinema and do everything but watch the film ? Personally getting quite hacked off with people texting in the cinema. So what if it is on mute ?? I can see the bloody light from where i am sitting. Very distracting and downright rude. If they really need to text, leave the cinema.

Too many people treat the cinema like their front room and yes, I would love it if someone does throw the annoying persons' phone and smash it to million pieces.
You could do that but they'd just go out and buy a new one.

I think it would be more appropriate to set it on vibrate and the loudest setting for the most annoying ring tone they have THEN we stuff it up their bums and superglue the 'opening' shit. That's how you make someone regret being a wanker.

It shouldn't need to be like that.

I think the vast majority of us know how to behave and i'm always self conscious about disturbing people, the worst behaviour you will get from me is snoring (soz J row)

I always have my phone with me in a cinema in case anyone needs me but for that 90 or so minutes when the lights go down then I just want everyone to leave me alone to enjoy what i'm watching.

I think now that using a mobile phone has got so cheap (if you even pay at all for texts/calls/wap/internet) that people feel they can't be off the damned thing. Great invention and I can't see how we lived without them but they have got to be the curse of society in so far as they have made so many people become very rude and ignorant.

I think a warning note in the programme, use your phone all you want between films but when people are paying a decent sum of money to enjoy FF then don't bloody spoil it for them.

I like the idea of stamping on them and then maybe stamping on their little heads too. :lol:

Reading this the other day reminded me of this thread: http://notalwaysright.com/personally-i- ... taxes/1196
If you cut off my head, what would I say... Me and my head, or me and my body? What right has my head to call itself me?

I had to tell not one but two clueless buffoons to turn their mobiles off tonight midway through the film. And they were bigger than me.*

* I legged it to the car park fairly swiftly afterwards, though.
