Theater courtesy

In regard to Anne Sharps’ Feb. 4 letter (“Exceptions to Rules”) about cell phone use in movie theaters, she is dead wrong. There are no exceptions. If you know you are going to be making a cell phone call, get to the movie theater early and pick an end seat. Then, when you feel you are entitled to disrupt the movie experience of the 15 people who are seated near you, simply leave the viewing area, go into the hallway and make your phone call.

Better you miss two minutes of movie time than cause resentment and bitterness to those around you. Anyone who is so important that they cannot stay off the cell phone for two hours needs to go into the hall. Simple.
