Beginning this Thursday, February 22nd, you won't be able to tote just any size bag/purse into the movies at Cinemark's Movie 16 and Tinseltown.

According to Cinemark, the decision is being initiated as a safety precaution for all of their theaters.

The new bag policy size limits are 12 inches X 12 inches X 6 inches. Anything larger than this will not be allowed into the theater, with the exception of medical bags and diaper bags.

Time to downsize your purse, leave the backpack in the car and have a bit more peace of mind at the movies.
