    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.

    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.

    Mo. is not an OC state, so they wouldn't have seen your guns anyway.
    Missouri is an OC state, but local governments can ban OC as state law does not preempt local OC laws like it does CC.

    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.

    She'll drive away in her car if she isn't kidnapped and raped/murdered on the walk to her car, "feeling safe" because she doesn't see guns. For her sake,let's hope she isn't inconvenienced.

    No worries, I'm sure the mall has unarmed security to save her.

    You may understand the arguement but I certainly don't. A sign which says No Firearms means just that. No firearms. It doesn't have to specify, pistols, revlovers or rifles. It doesn't have to say whether it's holstered or shoved into your belt mexican style. It doesn't have to say open carried or concealed. It's simple. No firearms at all. It may not have the force of law or result in you loosing your permit but if you are concealing and someone suspects you are carrying and an employee finds out you can be escorted out for violating a theater policy and you may be banned permantly from the property. If you return in the future the police could be called and you could be charged with trespassing. It's like a No Parking sign. Are you going to argue that it only applies to cars but not your Honda Goldwing motorcycle? No. It's the same with the No Firearms signs. If you friends are still concealing and carrying into those business which have posted with these signs they are simply Wrong.

    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.

    What is wrong with you?

    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.

    (sarcasm off)

    People who obey signs don't tend to kill people.

    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.
