Don't let 2024 be like 1984, but at Cinemark Tinseltown, it looks like they are already going that way.

I went to enjoy a movie and was bothered about my bag

I was treated poorly; first, I walked in to buy a movie ticket, then some jerk gives me some grief about my bag and says I can't have a backpack even though I've seen women walk in with a giant handbag or rather shoulder bags.

Anyway, I tell him the medicine I need to live is in my backpack, and I'm not going to leave it outside where it can get stolen or something. The jerk relented not wanting a lawsuit on his hands and letting me buy a ticket, not want a discrimination lawsuit, and lose his job.

I went in watched my movie without purchasing any food; I laughed, and I laughed some more it was a fun movie, then my blood sugar read as low, and I wanted to get some food. Then I went to the concession counter to get some food. I got some wine because they had Pinot Noir, my favorite red wine; they said I couldn't leave the building with the alcohol I just bought, so I went and saw another movie and enjoyed my snacks.

Then about 15 minutes into the film some more jerk came up to where I was sitting and bothered me and told me to leave and then I offered to buy another ticket they said no because they don't like that I'm fat and have diabetes and also just to jerks just like they were in high school picking on the fat kid and nerdy kid and the skinny kid et cetera. They told me they would have to escort me out, but I couldn't leave with the alcohol I purchased because they stupidly threw away the cap and open liquor bottles are illegal.

Now I avoid movie theaters like I avoid air ports for the same reason annoying security guards and all the general invasiveness and discrimination.

Then a group of jerks told me to leave.

So I was forced to quote, "just chug it" these morons knew I had a medical issue and could die from consuming that much alcohol as it could raise my blood sugar significantly without my medicine to help relegate it. So not only did they discriminate against me, but they also wanted to kill me or at least send me to the hospital.

The wine I had bought was excellent and expensive, and they forced me to "just chug it" like some fat stupid frat boy; then I put it in the trash and told them they could leave they said they would have to watch me leave so because I'm a wine collector I grabbed the bottle out of the trash, and there wasn't much trash because almost no goes to the movies anymore, so my bottle was relatively clean. Anyway, I marched for the door but they threatened to call the police on me for taking an open liquor bottle outside then I showed them there was no alcohol left in the bottle and glass isn't illegal, so they let me go.

but then continued to follow me some more and then as soon as stepped on the sidewalk I told them they could no longer legally bother me as I was off their property and the sidewalk is public property. But they kept staring at me even when I got to the bus stop and told them this is government property open to the public, but they had to keep bothering me until the bus arrived, which felt like an eternity. I told them they were being stupid, and no one was even watching the movie that they kicked me out of; it was just wasted space.

I have been a long-time customer of Cinemark and had many happy memories seeing movies there, but now I don't think I'll ever go to see a movie at Cinemark again, at least not the Tinseltown located in the southside of Colorado Springs, Colorado, in the USA. I think I'll take my business elsewhere unless I get a formal written apology and fair compensation.
