Me either. I usually either go there or to the Southlake Harkins theater... I avoid AMC anyway because Grapevine Mills is posted and I'm usually tempted to make a round through the mall when I'm there.

Heck, even when they get the wording right, they still can't read the law (e.g AMC with their teeny tiny 30.06 stickers on the doors)

My wife and went to see it, I was ready to walk out in about 10 minutes, she is a Les Miserables fanatic and even she walked out after about an hour of it. Surprised the heck out of me!


The movie had about a hour's worth of good parts in it, spread across nine hours (or so it seemed).

This is the first time I remember seeing something like that at that theater, but my PM9 and I went in anyhow and escaped at the end of the flick without detection. I don't honor such signs, since they have no force of law, but I'm wondering if this is going to be a growing trend, even in states like Texas with hundreds of thousands of CHL holders.

I plan to drop a note to Cinemark later to tell them that we don't plan to frequent their theaters until that policy changes. I'm guessing it will do about as much good as writing Feinstein and trying to convince her how wrong she is.

I'll have to check the Cinemark here in Pflugerville....

I think that most gun buster signs are put up for insurance purposes.... we have a no guns policy but not really
don't educate the anti crowd or they might put up a valid sign

Nope. While it may be the same company, it is in the fast-becoming People's Republic of CO, to match the People's Republic of Cali. I don't attribute what happens in other States to what happens in Texas.

If and when the Cinemark it Texas posts a 30.06. they've seen the last of my business. I hope that families in Aurora take them to the cleaners for posting that theater. I'm not burdened by Liberal bias and it is pretty clear to me that the shooter (I refuse to name him) picked that theater because it was posted.

Often companies are actually groups of franchisees with some level of independent decision making on a local level. My expectation is that if gun bans where a corporate level policy, Tinseltown would have been posted years ago. I certainly could be wrong.

I noticed it this weekend. Its not a valid sign. Ignore it. My right to not die in their theater trumps their nonlegal attempt to stop me. :fire

The Cinemarks in Mansfield, Cedar Hill and Grand Prairie are not posted (that I have seen, at least). The AMC at the Parks Mall (Arlington) is, which is why I don't go there any more.

Only one Cinemark in El Paso ('Tinseltown') in the far east is properly 30.06ed. The other two are not - they have just the 'No Firearms Allowed' notice posted with the other theater rules. My wife says it's because the Tinseltown location is owned by drug cartel bosses and they don't want anyone but cartel thugs carrying there. No matter to me - we don't go to movies at Tinseltown.

I have seen those signs in every Cinemark theater I've been in. They are not posted on the doors, that I've seen, but rather on these little plastic stands inside the ticket booths that also have something about no-smoking and one other thing I cannot remember. I've seen them for more than the 10+ years I've had my CHL.

I have had my CHL for about a month now. After discovering TexasCHLforum, I now avoid any business that posts a gun free victims in side sign. I hope never to use my weapon, but if I need it, better to have it then wish I had it.

Speaking of cinemark. I go to the one in plano quite often. I noticed a few weeks ago that they have a cop standing in the entry lobby. I don't recall noticing this before. It sure made me feel a whole lot safer knowing a cop would be standing in the lobby in case some nut decided to start shooting up the theater some 500 yards away. :lol: it is amazing how little effort it takes to make the Sheeple feel all warm and fuzzy.
