Cell Phones at Movies?

So you go to see a movie these days and they have commercials before the screenplay starts. They even shows those before the theater's own messages. So guess what the number one commercials are for? Cell phones.

Which wouldn't seem so odd, if one of those commercials didn't have a reminder to turn off your cell phone in the theater. Which the theater's messages consist of two reminding you to be quiet, one of which specifically mentions turning off cell phones.

Gah! So is it the theater choosing those adds and then reinforcing it by reminding you to turn them off? Or is it a package of advertising, where they get whatever the firm sends them?

Conspiracy or poor happenstance?
