This post is to deliver a message to the clueless:
Yes, it does annoy people when you turn on a device with a bright screen in a dark movie theater.
Yes, it is rude.
A small bright screen firing up in a pitch black room is distracting. Having to get up and ask you to shut it off spoils part of the movie. Getting into that spoiled movie often costs over $10 per person.
If you can’t go for 90 minutes without checking your email you should not go to movie theaters or you should make the radical move of going out into the hallway.
Other people paid to get into the movie besides you.
