    I think that you should be arguing that point to TV Licensing themselves rather than myself.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    Why not just tell movie cinema goers that they must hand in any mobile phones or bring in technology that can detect a mobile phone and if they have one theres a bleeping sound.

    I used to get to go to a fair few advanced screenings through my wife's work, some of those you had to hand your mobile phone in at the door and they gave you a "cloakroom" type ticket to get it back at the end. Later on they dispelled with this as it took too long and instead had manual devices which scanned the auditorium at intervals and could detect cameras in use. Not much good for stopping people using phones but good for preventing leaks and piracy. I guess the dodgy people filming would have had their screen covered anyway to make it less obvious, which would be less annoying for the rest of the cinema goers.

    I always turn my phone onto silent (all the time) and never look at it in the cinema, the only time I did was when I went to see The Last Jedi (poor, poor excuse for a film) and my second sun was due to be born that week. Had to keep checking my phone then just in case.
