New Poll: 9 out 10 folks want to Text in the Movie Theater


I'm concerned about our society. Beyond their love for dub step, skinny jeans and Taco Bell; a growing demand for texting in movie theaters is on the rise.

The Hollywood Reporter poll explains it all:
The poll found that a majority of 18-to-34-year-olds believe using social media while watching a movie in a theater would add to their experience, and nearly half would be interested in going to theaters that allowed texting and web surfing.
Okay, they can have one theater in a multiplex, or they should pay extra to do it. I don't know what wrong with these folks, but why would someone text through a movie they paid to see? Better yet, why would they want to ruin my movie experience?

I have been known to snatch a phone out of someone's hand, because they were texting next to me. I don't pay money to watch you text, so keep that mess at home.

I will be staying home from now on. This will RUIN the moving going experience.
F**k 18 - 34 year olds (even though I am one of them)!

Since the smoking section is gone maybe they should come up with a text section. Does anyone remember the Bird Nest back in the day?
