    Having an actual employee asking people to turn their phones off before the movie is a good idea and is more effective than those on-screen requests that nobody seems to care about. I saw one of the ushers making eye contact with people in the audience,..... and a couple of them then dug their phones out of the pocket to either turn it off or (what I would assume) in silent or vibrate mode.

    Short of using a cellphone jammer, a live usher (or usherette) seems to be the next best solution to getting people to not use their phones in the middle of a movie.

    The turning off of cell phone announcements is just one topic of at least three announcements, one of which is announceing future movies that will be having advance ticket sales.

    Also too it seems if Ward Theaters are going to do this they are doing in their 4 big screens (7,8,9 and 10) and their other medium (1 and 16) and small screens (2,3,4,5,6,11,12,13,14 and 15).
