Lightsabers and Masks Banned From Upcoming Star Wars Screenings

Lightsabers and Masks Banned From Upcoming Star Wars Screenings
Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens on December 18, and inevitably, there will be some fans who want to dress up for the event. But, if you plan on seeing the film at a Cinemark Theater, you will need to leave your lightsabers, and masks, at home. 

Cinemark announced the ban on some advertising posters, stating,  "Star Wars costumes are welcome. However, no face coverings, face paint or simulated weapons (including lightsabers/blasters) will be allowed in the building."

AMC will also be enforcing a code that was posted on their website. "AMC does not permit weapons or items that would make other guests feel uncomfortable or detract from the movie-going experience. Guests are welcome to come dressed in costume, but we do not permit masks. In short, bring your lightsaber, turn it off during the movie, and leave the blaster and Darth Vader mask at home."

Some of these new rules are a result of the aftermath of theater shootings in the past few years. 
Countdown to the release of Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens with the The Movie Hype App.
