I think I may take a minute of my time to go directly to the Century 16 theatre and talk to the management myself. I also think that I will be OC'ing when I do.
"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."
apparently, this is a new policy. i usd to go to the Cinemark Theater in my area often, and usually OCing. i was only approached once, by "security" (a fat guy with a flashlight), but i wasn't asked to leave. a few months back, an associate of mine reported they'd put up 'No Firearms' signs. no problem; i can always lift my shirt or jacket over my holster.

Guns dont kill people. people kill people
Regal Entertainment is the same way,they have a real small poster on the doors and you can bearly see no gun zone.Iguess it didn't work as well as they had hoped,so they resorted to putting it on the opening advertisments!
Alls well end well !
While this is a OC related thread, has it ever been clarified if they can apply the notice to to CC?
Here in MI, it is slightly unclear if you can CC at a movie theater. Many state you can, and that is my understanding. What has not been clear is if you can CC if there is a no firearms sign.
There is a UA near me (and a few other theaters) that have a no firearms policy, and several CC permit holders I know have stated there is nothing they (UA) can do to hold you to that policy if you are a CC permit holder (at least in MI). I'm not 100% sure of this, but I understand the argument.
I've desided I don't want to frequent an establishment that would possibly make it an issue (just because I don't want to provide support).
However, this has left me with only one movie theater nearby that I can go to. Since I don't like to share with people I CC, has made difficult some social interactions when friends call to see if I want to go watch a movie somewhere else.

Isn't it amazing how a gun strikes such fear in someopne, and when she get off work she'll drive away in her car, which kill far more people every year than a gun.

Cinemark, like Regal have a "no (legal) guns" policy. They have miniscule signs. I know they are there so I just don't bother to frequent those establishments. This is a PERFECT example of the security at a Cinemark Theater. Gunman killing at least 12 people and injuring at least 50, police said.

My gun is like an adult diaper, I wear it daily & no one has to know, until the day "crap happens"
Everyone knows signs stop bad activity.
Speed limit signs prevent speeding.
Don't Walk signs stop people from walking against the lights.
One Way signs ensure no one ever goes the wrong way.
No Littering signs stop people from tossing their trash.
Stop signs keep people from rolling through those intersections.
People who obey signs don't tend to kill people.

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
NC is so restrictive about where you can and can't carry (signs pre-empt rights here) about the only places I go where I can legally carry outside the home are the state park abutting my property where I walk my dog and the grocery store, which doesn't post. And WalMart, but I only go there when I'm out of ammo.
