New chief executive and president of AMC Theatres, Adam M. Aron, caused quite the buzz when he stated that the company was looking into making theaters "more texting friendly." This plan was being developed in hopes to cause a bigger draw of the millennial demographic.
While AMC ensured that this would only be tested "in a very few screens," many film goers still feared that this experiment could wield results that would carry over to other major theater chains.
Luckily, Aron came out today with a public statement, issued over Twitter and Facebook, stating that "With your advice in hand; there will be NO TEXTING ALLOWED in any of the auditoriums at AMC Theatres. Not today, not tomorrow, and not in the foreseeable future."
So breathe easy movie goers, texting is still not allowed in AMC Theaters, and you have every right to report anyone violating these rules to the nearest staff member.
