    Went to a movie theater today

    Wife and I went to see "2016" this afternoon at a REGAL theater (Regal Canyon View Stadium 14 in Grand Junction, CO), as we were approching the outer doors I looked for any gun banner sign and saw none. The ticket counter was between outer and inner doors so I looked over everything posted and saw nothing about weapons or guns, got the tickets and looked over inner doors, nothing. Got popcorn and drinks and headed to the theater ticket taker, no signs posted and no one wanting to search the wife's purse. Don't know if this is corporate policy or just the western slope of Colorado but if Hollyweard ever makes a movie worth seeing we'll be back.

    So you went to the theater and saw film. And nobody tried to take your guns away or look through your wife's purse? And they didn't have any signs prohibiting firearms? Amazing.

    In all seriousness if they had gunbuster signs, what would you have done?

    Glad you were able to enjoy the movie. Nice you were able to find a place to go for entertainment that isn't posted. I read to much about bed bugs being found in theaters so I just don't go. I will see it when it hits netflix.

    It's good to know that not all theaters are going with a paranoid, knee-jerk reaction to the theater killings. I'm glad that at most theaters you can still go and enjoy a movie while legally carrying.

    Well, thanks for that, man. Now I won't be able to enjoy a movie out again. I'll always be wondering how "infested" I will be after leaving the theater.

    They stopped checking at our theaters also. They did it for about a week and now nothing. All for show and I think they got too much negative backlash
    A few weeks back the wife and I went and they asked to look in her purse for "her safety". Of course I had a full size FNP on my hip in an IWB and a folder in my pocket so even without them checking her purse she was safe.
    This week I did not go but she did and said they did not ask and she didn't see them ask anyone.

    I went to a movie recently and we had pre-bought our tickets and were running late. I didn't waste time hanging out in the front looking for some obscure sign, it hadn't been posted in the past. I went inside, they tore our tickets and that was it. There were two extra-duty officers outside in their patrol cars, and they are usually there on the weekends anyway, nothing new about that.

    I meant to look for sign at the front doors as we left, but forgot.

    I didn't see any signs either, but in Florida signs mean nothing

    No meaning in Colorado either, just have to leave if asked; as to what would I have done if it were posted...... reminds me of an old song "Ask me no questions and I'll tell you no lies...."


    Also now that someone mentioned it, no cops and no 'security" either.

    I went to see "2016" on Sunday also. Had my M&P9c with me and had no issues. Marcus Theaters have a gun friendly weapons policy. Never seen a sign posted in any of their theaters.

    the wife and I went to the movies last weekend...a Carmike with their usual "no guns/weapons, bags will be searched" signs. Ignored them...G36 IWB just like always, wife had her P238 in purse...no searches, no issues. Screw 'em.

    Haven't been to a movie in probably 10 years now, to my wife disappointment. Has nothing to do with gun buster signs or bed bugs. I refuse to pay the prices they charge.

    By the time you buy the ticket, drink and a snack, you've spent $40-50. For under $10. I can rent the movie, buy a 6 pack of soda and pop a bowl of popcorn that actually tastes like popcorn. Plus I can pause the movie to go take a nature break, and not miss anything.

    Took my youngest to see ParaNorman last night. Cinemark theater which I understand is owned by the same people as the theater in Aurora. No signs. Not even the ones they used to have that didn't mean anything.

    Same here. The last we went was because my parents gave wife and I carmike bucks. 9$+ for each ticket is crazy. Now days with movies being shot all digital they come to DVD in a few months anyways.

    Actually they mean "No Guns Allowed" unless I am mistaken. Do signs that say "No Tresspassing" have any meaning?
