       (https://www.facebook.com/HollywoodStadium14Longview)






Check out the reviews.








Cliff notes for those that don't have a facebook, this theater is doing bag checks. They found a ladies weapon, and the manager says that people who have a CHL are not welcome in his business. They do not have the proper signs posted.







I understand property rights and all that, just thought I'd share.

OK

facebook link you supplied has no new entries since 2013 (Coming Soon Identity Thief) and Movie web page no longer exists.

I guess folks still post on it though.

The relevant information is in the reviews. Let me assure you, this theater is open.

Exactly.  I wont get into why purse carry is dumb as dumb can be,  but if you actually carry concealed ( on a belt holster), they wont know.




The bad part is, if they actually start giving "NOTICE" that CHL holders aren't welcome, it's a trespass issue.




Curious how long nonsense like that lasts though in practice.

Just called them, and a woman said no weapons. However, the reviews say a male manager was turning away people who had CHL's, not telling them to put them in their car but refusing them altogether. I can't link the facebook pic that I tried to that makes this clear.

Vote with your feet and your wallet.  Boycott this place.  Let them know why you won't patronize haters and why you won't go into a "designated victim zone".

It sounds like they're doing both. Which means the thread title isn't inaccurate.

I will not sit in any theater without a gun in my posession.

I guess they want a turkey shoot in their establishment, but no turkeys, just people are the targets.

So the manager was asking people if the had a LICENSE, or a gun? A CHL is a license. I still maintain that it was the GUN that caused refusal of entry, not the legal ability to posses one



or are you saying that someone was asking every patron if they have a CHL, and all affirmative answers were told to leave?

Draw your own conclusions. Seems like they need to decide among themselves what they want.

They'll probably ban open carry on their property. I'm sure they won't be the only place to do so.

When ChL first started,I use to carry a form in my back pocket that I presented to business owners/managers I knew who posted their property with the 30.06 signs.

The form simply stated 'Before I spend my money in this establishment, the owner/Manager, by posting no CHL allowed in the store, Takes responability for my safety. if I am injured while in or about your establishment unarmed, the business will pay for all medical bills and disability bills resulting from the above policy.' sign here...........

Worked at a few places where I shopped. Others.....did not get my money or anyone else's  money  and are either smaller in size or out of business.

It is BS, but it serves a dual purpose. I'm sure they're more concerned with people bringing in outside concessions. This makes the sheeple feel safe and helps the bottom line....I guess.

They don't need PC.  Admittance is subject to your consent.  Don't consent, don't enter.

It isn't a warrantless search. They aren't the government and you can refuse and leave.

That would be Reason No. 2,487 why seeing a movie at a theater is no longer worth the time, expense or trouble.

"Boss, our box office receipts are down again this month - What should we do?"

"I know - We'll make the movie-going experience even more unpleasant for our customers than it already is. That'll fix it!"

When your customer base is retarded kids, does it really matter? The place stays packed. Blows my mind.




This probably won't affect them to be honest.

Skip the manager and contact the owner, if they agree go public and tell everyone you know.  Make sure you travel to some other theater.

Either way, no fuckin way youre searching me. A movie theater isnt a court house or the secure area of an airport and you arent checking my buggy at SAMs or Costco, so they can kindly piss up a rope then fist themselves. Dont give in to fucktards searching your shit!

You don't have to consent.  But refuse and they refuse you entry.  

It is simple.

Have you ever *really* searched a purse?

Two ways to do it.

1) X-ray machine. Speedy, but not cost effective for a theater.

2) Empty the entire purse. Yeah, go ahead. May God have mercy on your soul.

A surefire extra bright-ass flashlight and a CHL is the best thing.

"I need to check your purse."

"No you will not.  Back off."


Seems pretty simple.

And I agree with a previous poster - I will not enter a theater, or mall, etc. without my sidearm.

Agreed, and carry in a purse as stated above is a dumb idea.
