Would you expect to have your bags checked at the movie theatre? One movie chain is starting to check bags at the door.
Esquire Magazine reports that the nationwide theatre chain Regal Entertainment Group has quietly implemented a policy that your bags may be checked at the door. In a statement released from Regal Entertainment Group states that:
“Security issues have become a daily part of our lives in America. Regal Entertainment Group wants our customers and staff to feel comfortable and safe when visiting or working in our theatres. To ensure the safety of our guests and employees, backpacks and bags of any kind are subject to inspection prior to admission. We acknowledge that this procedure can cause some inconvenience and that it is not without flaws, but hope these are minor in comparison to increased safety.”
People are willing to pay more for a little bit more security, I just wonder how far people are willing to go.
