There are major changes in place now that will affect you when you go to the next Regal Cinemas movie. Many people are not happy about it.

In response to the recent attacks at theaters across the country, Regal Cinemas is now searching customers before allowing anyone inside.

A printed sign hangs in the front ticket counters that reads: “For the safety and comfort of all our guests: Backpacks and bags of any kind are subject to inspection prior to entry to this facility.”

This is a new corporate security policy. Workers said it comes after the recent rash of theater shootings; one in Lafayette, Louisiana and another outside Nashville, Tennessee.

It’s a policy change that some welcome, however there has been some backlash from across the country with some complaining about medical safety issues, and others about conceal carry gun rights.

How do you feel about this change? Are you willing to go to the movies under these circumstances?
