Cinemark USA, Inc. is the third largest movie theater chain in the United States and operates theaters under several brands, including its flagship Cinemark, Century Theatres, Tinseltown USA, CinéArts, and Rave Cinemas.
Cinemark is notorious for hosting a mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado in which 58 people were wounded by gunfire. There are many published reports of Cinemark’s gun prohibition, however, Cinemark has never responded in writing to our repeated inquiries about their gun policy. We were able to confirm on the phone with them that they do prohibit firearms in their theaters. So as we approach the 1 year anniversary of the mass murder in their “gun free zone” in Aurora, CO, we believe it is about time we add Cinemark to our boycott.
Below are just a few of the scores of links to stories about the shooting and Cinemark’s gun prohibition.
As proven by James Eagan Holmes, Cinemark’s “gun free” theaters are death traps for a disarmed public. Many people have theorized that he went out of his way to choose this theater for his attack specifically because it was a “gun free zone.”
We urge everyone to boycott Cinemark for your own safety, but also to send Cinemark a message that we will not be disarmed and left to die in the event that another psychopath decides to go on a rampage in a supposedly “gun free zone.” Even if you think you could legally “sneak” your concealed firearm into their theater, why reward Cinemark with your business when they maintain a policy that may well be responsible for the murders of so many innocent people?
It is becoming painfully clear that malls and movie theaters are among the most dangerous places to be in this country, thanks in-part to foolish gun bans.
