Cinemark to Reward Movie-Goers Who Don't Text in Theaters

Posted: November 15th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Cinemark to Reward Movie-Goers Who DonSubmit Comment
It's become so bad that it's impossible to see a movie at a theater without someone reaching for their phone to either text or take a phone call. Cinemark customers have been begging the theater chain to come up with a solution and Cinemark believes that it has.

The company will encourage movie-goers to download its iPhone and Android app, which will dim the phone and have incoming calls vibrate rather than ring. Customers must continue using the app throughout the film. If they do, then Cinemark will send them a coupon.

Meanwhile, theater chains points out that there are plenty of movie-goers who would rather attend a screening where texting is allowed. But there are even more who want to preserve the traditional experience. As a result, companies are scrambling to find solutions.

That's great. Getting paid to do the right thing, the considerate thing, which would happen automatically in a considerate, polite society. More welfare, more entitlement, more bribes.

Ergo, I will now begin expecting a check from the government, then, because I have not raped, robbed, stolen or murdered anyone...recently.

Blacks people will continue receiving a government check regardless.

Wow. At my nearest Regal Theater, we didn't even have that kind of problem at movies like Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, and Sinister, movies that were swarming with teenagers.

How about the reward is you don't get a 2x4 with a rusty nail in it up the head?

You have to REWARD people these days for being considerate?

f*ck this planet!

You heard about the Netherlands trio that received a few years for murder right?

Yep. He brutally stabbed, as if there's a another way of killing someone with a knife, some kid, a girl I believe.

The actual knife-man, boy, whatever, received one year in juvenile detention, the other

...two who planned, paid for said crime, received I think two or so.

Not sure of they can be released early for good behavior.



Meh. Life doesn't men sh*t in Western civilization, so f*ck being annoyed whilst you try to hear your latest comic book villain banally banter to the symphony of Cheetos-munching .

Cinemark sucks ass
Just a ploy to get more assholish patrons

Choose your theatre like you choose what house youre gonna buy and you will have a minimum of fuss

Right?! It just so happens that the type of person that needs an ass kicking is also the type of person that runs to the PO-PO or tries to sue you for PTSD or whatever.

When I am in a theater and see someone using a phone I tell them to cut it out, if they do it again i have been known to slap them on the back of the head or get up close and personal.

I always turn mine off when going into a movie.

This theater chain... what a f*cking joke.

How about... kicking people out that text?
How about THAT for a reward for people that don't text?

Too simple?

Too obvious?

Yeah... thought so.

How about lower your f*cking ticket prices and consessions? THAT is why no one is going to the theaters. Especially when the film is out on Blu-Ray in 4-5 months for the price of two tickets. Family of four on a Friday night...4 tickets = $45, 4 small popcorn = $20, 4 small beverages = $16, & 4 candy = $14 dollars, for a grand total of...$95 f*cking dollars! Yeah, I can't wait to go the theater!

people are just cowards today, what ever happened to going to see a theater to see a movie?...granted good films are hard to come by but still if you're gonna pay or get in free to watch on a big screen, why would you waste the time or other's?
