  • Cinemark bans large bags in movie theaters

Exceptions will be made for medical equipment bags and "diaper bags".

The movie theater chain recently changed its bag policy, adding restrictions on bag sizes.

Danny Davis, with the Bush School of Government and Public Service, said Cinemark's new rule is the first step in increasing safety.

She would also like to see metal detectors at the front of all movie theaters.

A manager of the Wichita Falls Cinemark confirmed this new bag policy will be implemented at their location in Parker Square.

But most movie patrons we spoke with said that's just the price they'll have to pay for safety.

This new policy comes almost six years after James Holmes entered a Century 16 theater, owned by Cinemark and killed 12 people in 2012.

The theater's new policy will go into effect about a week after a mass shooting in Florida.

"Cinemark does not provide a general area to check bags or any other personal belongings not allowed into the theatre", the theatre said.

As for Cinemark, if you bring a bag that's too big, you'll have to turn around and head back to your vehicle to drop it off.

A bag the same size a large tote, like the kind Cinemark will allow, can be taken in the American Bank Center, but it must be clear and without tint.
