"Big Bags Not Allowed At Cinemark Theaters," for a lot of us, translates... no more smuggling 20 oz. pops and Big Grab potato chips into the movie theater- at least not in Cinemark theaters.

With the entire nation being on high alert after the Parkland High school mass shooting in Florida that left 17 students and adults dead, Cinemark theaters are adopting a new bag policy to enhance the safety of all people.

Beginning tomorrow, February 22, Cinemark will no longer permit bags or packages larger than 12" x 12" x 6", according to the Cinemark Theater website. The only exception to the rule is medical bags and diaper bags.

As stated on the Cinemark Theater website, theater staff members will have the right to inspect all bags and packages as customers enter the theater.

So, for those of you who are already annoyed upon reading this, snack before the theater or go ahead and break down and pay those hefty prices. While it may be an inconvenience to some, I salute Cinemark for taking this precaution to help keep its customers safe.
