Regal Cinemas Puts New Bag Checking Policy Into Place

Regal Cinemas Puts New Bag Checking Policy Into Place
Regal Cinemas has announced that they have started checking bags in light of recent theater shootings.

On the company website, while the move may inconvenience some, "Security issues have become a daily part of our lives in America. Regal Entertainment Group wants our customers and staff to feel comfortable and safe when visiting or working in our theaters."

Regal is reacting to the concern that movie goers have about safety in the theaters; customers feel more security measures need to be put in place.  Many moviegoers said in a recent survey that would even be willing to pay $1.00 more if it meant that there would be heightened security available.

A gunman killed two patrons and himself during a showing of "Trainwreck" in Lafayette, La. in July, and another attack took place just a week later Nashville, Tenn., during which a man wielding a hatchet and pellet gun unleashed pepper spray in a showing of "Mad Max: Fury Road." He was killed by police.
