Theater chair keeping the phones / Theater chair

Theater chair keeping the phones

'Theater chair keeping the phones is a digital detox theater chair. The seats are usually locked and closed. When you put smartphone in a pocket and close it, the seat's lock is released and then you can open it.
People do various things to rest. The movie is one of them. But there are people who do SNS even when they watch movies at the movie theater. They not only ruin their movies but also disturb others' rest with bright phone lights in the dark movie theater. We need to stop them from using smartphones in theaters for everyone.
