Cinemark, owner and operator of the Tinseltown in Chico, is banning large bags into all theatres beginning Thursday, Feb. 22.
The company announced on their website that bags larger than 12” x 12” x 6” will no longer be allowed in to the theatre, citing security concerns. The size allowed is equivalent to a medium tote bag.
The company did say that there are two exceptions: diaper bags and medical equipment bags will still be allowed.
Cinemark said they made the new rules to help keep movie-goers and employees safe.
The company added that they won't have a designated area for people to check bags, and they reserve the right to inspect bags and packages that enter their theaters.
