Cell Phones Illegal in Theaters

Yes. You read that correctly. According to Reuters, as of Sunday, February 19, New York City now restricts cellular phones in "any indoor theater, library, museum, gallery, motion picture theater, concert hall or building in which theatrical, musical, dance, motion picture, lecture or other similar performances are exhibited." If you are caught, you will be fined a hefty $50. While the IDEA is brilliant to help minimize cell phones ringing during live performances, but this just seems outrageous. What do you think? Let the debate begin!

  1. Interesting that this is coming out just as many theatres are trying live tweet performances to boost buzz on shows . . . would love to have fewer interruptions, but total banning is a bit extreme.

  2. I am a frequent theatre goer and I'm all for it. I once sat next to a woman whose phone went off during A View from the Bridge just as the main character was stabbed. While there's never a good time for a cell phone interruption it seems that it usually happens during quiet moments and the climax. If you're too important to turn off your cell phone for a show, then you needn't be there.
