Can film projectors in movie theaters be "paused"? If I were a theater manager I would post signs everywhere warning inconsiderate jerks that management would pause the film to allow them to finish their calls or stop talking, then toss them out. Purchasing a ticket to a movie is a contract to sit quietly and watch the film - not to take phone calls or chat about baking muffins. Regarding home viewing, any time we would rent movies there would be an initial group of about 5 people gathered around the TV but I would always be the only one left after it was over. And this was well before the cell phone craze so I'd imagine today we wouldn't get 10 minutes into a film before people started wandering off. At least in a theater your options are limited, especially if you're sitting in the middle.
