If you are always trying to get one over on the man and bring your own snacks into the movie theater, beware of these new rules at our local Cinemark.


Going to the movies with a big bag full of treats from outside the movie theater, just got a little more difficult. This was not really the intention of this new rule. In light of the recent mass shooting in Florida, Cinemark updated their bag policy. This pertains to all the Cinemark theaters, not just the one here in Lufkin. I think it is a step in the right direction. You can bring in a bigger bag, but they will be subject to a search. So bringing a huge bag full of candy and drinks, though not the reason for this new rule, might still in violation of another Cinemark policy.

If you go to their website and click on the very bottom "About" you will see the bag policy at the very end of the last field. No where else on the site is this mentioned, and I can't find any rules about bringing in outside food and drink.
