After US shooting, high cost of more security vexes movie theaters

Louisiana shooting puts theater security back into spotlight.

The big theater chains have been slow to react after another deadly shooting at a cinema raised fears about security measures at cineplexes nationwide.

The National Assn. of Theater Owners and representatives from the nation’s top five chains either did not have a comment or could not be reached for a comment Friday morning. The chains — AMC Entertainment, Regal Entertainment, Cineplex Entertainment, Carmike Cinemas and Cinemark Theatres — also had not released statements on their websites or social media pages.

Most cinemas in the U.S. don’t have metal detectors or extensive security checks, and moviegoers can still wander around the multiplex without fear of raising suspicion from employees. Several civil suits, which could go to trial next year, allege that Cinemark should be held liable because of inadequate security that could have prevented the shooting.

Here you can write a commentary on the recording "After US shooting, high cost of more security vexes movie theaters".
