Last Saturday, the wife and I went to see the new James Bond movie at the Merced Mainplace Theater. I have been a James Bond fan since 1962 when I first saw "Doctor No." The one thing we didn't have to worry about in 1962 was some inconsiderate person in the rows ahead of you using a cell phone. The light from the phone shines brightly back at everyone behind the user. At one point during the movie, there were four cell phones being used ahead of us at the same time. There was an usher standing at the bottom left of the theater.
There was no way he or she could not see the light from the cell phones, but nothing was done. If you can't leave your phone in your car or turn it off while you are at the movies, you are weak-minded and your parents brought you up to be inconsiderate.
Going to the movies has always been way to escape from the daily grind. Now the experience is ruined by someone using a cell phone at the movies.
Next time, I'll wait for the movie to come out in video.
