You Can Bring Backpacks Into Movie Theaters.
Well, except for Regal and AMC, because they don’t play.
Are you allowed to bring a backpack to a movie theater?
Cinemark is no longer allowing movie goers to bring large bags into the theater with them as part of a plan to increase safety. Theaters will not provide a bag check for those who do bring larger bags and will instead require those guests to stow their bag elsewhere before entering the theater.
Can you bring a water bottle to AMC?
Yes! Actually, bottled water is the only beverage a guest can bring into a movie theater without ever being hassled over. If they bring their own bottle, even an empty one that they’ll fill at the fountain, that is perfectly up to them.
Are backpacks allowed in Cinemark?
A new policy, “to enhance the safety and security of our guests and employees,” goes into effect Thursday at the Cinemark chain, barring any bag bigger than 12 inches by 12 inches by 6 inches. That means most backpacks and large purses will not be allowed in the auditoriums.
