Cinemark's new ban on large bags is now in effect

"Those who go to Cinemark Theaters are banned from bringing bags larger than 12" x 12" x 6".

The Cinemark Theater chain has reacted to last week's shootings at the Parkland, Florida high school with stepped up protection for moviegoers.

The company says the new policy, effective February 22, was put in place to "enhance the safety and security" of guests and employees.

The company said the change is due to safety related reasons. "But the best thing about is for security also", one person said.

"Where there's big groups of people, yes I think so". "I don't really mind, whatever keeps us safe is totally fine with me".

Staff members will now have the right to inspect all packages and bags brought inside the building.

Bags larger than 12 inches by 12 inches and six inches high will be subject to the new enforcement, other than medical and diaper bags.

Some said they were shocked the changes to the rule did not come earlier, especially in Colorado.
