I'm not gonna trash the guy for spit-balling, but I'm glad to see that he IS actually listening and was quick to shoot down the texting-in-theaters idea. Theaters love gimicky bullshit like D-Box and 4DX to try and lure more folks to screenings. I really hope that whatever Aron and AMC come up with are genuinely good ideas that enhance the theater experience, and not sully it. At the very least, we won't have to contend with other folks texting for the time being.
