Announcement about courteous phone use in theaters

Ava Smyth Ava Smyth (0) on 28/12/13

The announcements about not using phones in Japanese theaters is really difficult for me to understand.

Can you please tell me the typical message they say?

Hi Ava,

A typical announcement would be:

"携帯をマナーモードにするか電源をお切り下さい" (Keitai wo manner-mode ni suruka, dengen wo okiri kudasai)*Keitai = cell phone *manner-mode = silent mode

Meaning: Please ensure that your cell phone is turned off or on silent mode.

Hope it helps,

Misako
