We have seen several of these movies at our local AMC theater. The first few times we went, we had to explain what the device was, and even insist that it existed. Lately though they know exactly what we want, and it has worked just about every time.
One thing that I have found that works is unplugging the cheapo earphones that they give you with the device, and plugging in earbuds from an iPhone or a similar device. The audio is improved, and they leak less sound into the general theater.

Butler was perfect, but sound effects sometimes drowned out the description in the other two. Still, I did follow most of the action, and was satisfied with the results. I have since been told you can change the volume on the headphones, which would be great. Ed Meskys.
