Crying babies and ringing cell phones have been long-time movie theater "no-no's," but does it bother you when someone is texting during a movie?

A movie theater chain in Arizona is now barring its audiences from sending text messages during movies.

The company says customers complained that the flash of light on the cell phone ruins their movie-watching experience.

So after the previews, a message now appears on the movie screen saying "NTDM" -- no texting during movies.
