hi all - not sure if this is occuring elsewhere, but when i went to go see 'signs', right before the trailers started, an employee made an announcement. essentially he stated that pagers and phones are not to be used in the theater. employees will come in and do spot-checks. whoever is caught will be asked to leave and their money refunded! half the people in the theater applauded when he was done. i gave a very enthusiastic applaud myself. i almost gave him a standing ovation. right on United Artists...it's the first step. i'll now give them preference when possible.
