Techdirt: Ever Wished You Could Push A Button To Remove A Disruptive Movie Watcher?: "Regal Entertainment Group, owners of the largest US movie chain is calling technology to the rescue. They'll be giving out little devices to 'mature' audience members, along with a free bucket of popcorn. If there's a problem in the theater, whoever has the device can click a button and immediately alert theater employees to come and help deal with the situation. The pager device apparently has 4 separate buttons. The first is for disruptions in the audience, including mobile phone-related issues. The others are for a faulty projector, temperature problems or the generic 'other' button. "
