US cinema chain Regal introduces bag search after attacks

One of America’s largest cinema chains, Regal, is now searching bags of film-goers following several attacks on movie theatres across the US.

Regal’s updated policy says it wants customers and staff “to feel comfortable and safe” in its cinemas.

It is not clear when it began, but reports say some people had their bags checked at some of the company’s 570 cinemas this week.


To be honest, I seldom attend the cinema any more, too many Batman 17’s and Iron Man 44’s, good films all but I can wait till they’re on pay per view or free.
