Theaters are cracking down on people using smartphones during movies.  
 
The Motion Picture Association of America recently updated its guidelines, encouraging theater managers to contact law-enforcement if they believe someone is recording a film with a cell phone.  
 
The Cinemark chain has a new app feature called "Cinemode" where you will get coupons for using the theater's app to put their phone into dimmed and silent mode.
