AMC's trial balloon is shot down; there will be no texting in its auditoriums
After getting plenty of negative reaction from its announcement, AMC has released a statement saying that it has "heard loud and clear that this is a concept that our audience does not want." In addition AMC said, "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."
Obviously theater patrons did not relish the idea of fighting a battle that it felt it had already won.
