“Effective immediately, we’re not going to allow backpacks into the theater and not allow guests to wear masks that cover their face, hiding their identity,” said Chris Johnson, vice president of Classic Cinemas, which has suburban locations in St. Charles, Carpentersville, Elk Grove Village, Fox Lake, Naperville, Downers Grove and Elmhurst.
AMC Theatres, which has many locations throughout the suburbs, released a statement on its Facebook page Friday afternoon that outlined some security changes. The chain states it will not allow in guests wearing costumes that make others uncomfortable, nor permit face-covering masks or fake weapons.
