Thinking about bringing a 12-course snack feast the next time you see a movie? Think again.
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.

Cloudy skies and very light scattered showers are lingering across northern California for the start of your Wednesday, but we'll be clearing out and warming up Wednesday afternoon. We'll be sunny and warmer on Thursday, but clouds will increase Friday. More showers are looking likely Friday night into Saturday, but we'll dry out again for Halloween on Sunday.
