    here is the kicker.
    they were offered a settlement by the theater, greed/stupidity or BOTH made them reject it in hopes of a pay out.

    I believe the original offer by Cinemark was $150K split among 40+ plaintiffs. While I can't comment on the exact nature of the suit then brought against them - this seems like a classic lose-lose scenario. I'm sure the PR at Cinemark will have their hands full with the repercussions...

    Most public places have security. Why did the theater not even hire a guard or usher to be one? Or even a camera hooked up, they're like $50 on NewEgg?

    Or why, in a conceal carry state, did the theater dictate people could not carry weapons there? The company has a right to disallow that but if it has no system in place to compensate.... yeah, it's all lose-lose either way but I have a feeling the theater will be pimping out more commercials and $50 popcorn followed by no customers because nobody is going to want to see a movie there anymore.

    What are people expecting? TSA security theatre at the theatre? What is an unarmed guard going to do? A camera is going to do what? Give liveleak some new material after the fact?
    Yes the theatre was posted no carry because feelz.
