Boycott Cinemark

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.”

Boycott Cinemark-1

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.

  1. Your boycotting like the people getting hurt are the owners of the company, but they’re so rich they won’t notice. The people who will be hurt are the poor who depend on the company for employment.

  2. I always conceal carry when I attend my local Cinemark. Better safe than sorry (remember Colorado)

  3. As a Texas LTC (CHL) instructor I’ve been paying close attention to this issue; especially since we’re only 23 days into the new law. It also helps that I leave near a Cinimark Tinsletown theater. Granted I’m a firm believer in The 2A, I’m also a firm believer in the tactical advantages of Concealed Carry. However, in defense of Cinimark, their theater in Grapevine, TX has properly posted 30.07 signes but no 30.06. I also recall there being additional verbiage adjacent the 30.07 openly stating they’re okay with you concealing the handgun, while asking that we (LTC’s) keep it concealed. I’ll run by and snap a photo.

  4. That’s the point of “concealed” carry, no one knows you have the gun until some idiot starts shooting patrons. Given the number of attacks in movie theaters, don’t you think you should remove your “no gun” policy? It just might save YOUR life!
    To tell the truth, I’m never without my firearm, even in your theaters. It hasn’t jumped out shooting anyone yet! But if some fool does start shooting, I will accept thanks for saving your stupid butt

  5. I will chime in here with others. Cinemark has the not legally enforceable (at least in Texas) sign with a pistol with slash mark. The most they can do is ask you to leave, and if they want ban you from the property. Sad that the only big theaters in DFW are all anti-gun. I suggest Studio Movie Grill, or Alamo Drafthouse neither are anti-gun that I am aware of.

  6. depends on what state in Texas AMC has the proper posting to not be allowed to carry therefore I don’t go there. I emailed AMC about their policy and did they reply after a month now…no.As far as Cinemark the last time I went there they only had the illegal sign with a slash and a gun which is not the legal posting in Texas. If they make places gun free zones those are places I DO NOT GO TO.

  7. You can only be charged with criminal trespassing if you are asked to leave and refuse to comply.

  8. Careful, Bill. You can be charged with criminal trespass if someone sees your gun, or a print, in the popcorn line.

  9. I always have my CCW when I go to their theaters. It’s not a crime, just a violation of a corporate policy. What they don’t know may just save my life and the lives of others.
