Well I do. Young kids aside that keep me from the movies as much as I'd like, I'd probably go 1x a month if everyone used simple manners, as is, I go once or twice a year, tops.
I don't feel like I listed anything that isn't a simple common courtisy. So people having cell phones on doesn't bug you, but obviously there are enough complaints because the last movie I was at, they gave the pre-movie speel about keeping your cell phones off and how the bright lighted screen is distracting. I'd love to see them actually start enforcing that and removing people from the theater for texting during the movie multiple times.
Maybe I'm just becoming a crochety old man, but I think you'd be a little annoyed if I brought a flashlight with me and turned it on for 10 seconds every 15 minutes or so during a 2 hour flick. That is essentially what bringing up your cell phone to text someone does almost everytime I see a movie the last 2-3 years.
