Cinemark has added 'CineMode' to its smartphone app, which dims your screen and sets your volume to vibrate.

The Cinemark smartphone app for iPhone and Android has added a new feature that rewards moviegoers for not using their phone during the film. ‘CineMode’ enables you to earn digital coupons while being courteous during the screening.

App Rewards You With Deals If You Don’t Check Your Phone During A Movie

If you activate it before the movie begins, your screen will automatically dim and you’ll be prompted to set your volume to vibrate. CNET reports that if you try to access your phone during the movie, the app will warn you that you won’t get your reward, but if you wait until the end you’ll get a coupon for a special offer at the cinema like discounted concessions.
