VOX Introduces Distraction-Free Films As A New Cinema Experience

It’s a sorry state of affairs if a cinema chain has to announce distraction-free films as a new movie viewing experience.

However, cinema giant Vox has done exactly that, rolling out their new Distraction-free film screening, where they reserve the right to kick viewers out for talking, texting or distracting others during a film.

Distraction-free film screenings should be the norm

Picture this. The final scene of ‘Avengers: Endgame’ where everyone is (SPOILER ALERT) mourning to the death of Tony Stark and the bloke beside you takes his phone out to take a call. Annoying right!

Well, this sort of behaviour has pretty much become the norm in this region. As soon as the movie starts you’re met with a chorus of loud discussions, mobile phone light shows, and the bobbing silhouettes of latecomers heads.

All regular screenings should be distraction-free

We can’t help but think, cinema chains should do more to make sure ALL their regular screenings are distraction-free, ejecting those who annoy others across multiple experiences, rather than creating a new one.

If you’re one of those who use your smartphone to check memes or messages, or talks about how the film will end in the midst of a screening, let us tell you, just don’t. It could ruin someone else’s experience.

As of now, they’re screening films like ‘The Kitchen,’ ‘The Current War,’ ‘Queen of Spades’ and Quentin Tarantino’s epic thriller, ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.’

The experience is open to 18+-year-olds only.
