Is It Ever OK to Text in the Cinema?


A man in Texas is suing his date for texting during the screening of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 they went to. It’s his pet peeve, apparently. But while he says she was texting pretty much constantly, she says it was just two or three times. He was so upset, he asked her to go to the lobby to text. She obliged, but then subsequently decided to leave. Do you think it’s ever OK to text in the cinema? One cinema thinks not, and issued this video as a warning to other would-be texters: Chris and Kim pick up the debate and ask whether it’s ever all right to use your phone when you’re watching a movie.
