I don't see anything disgusting in this event, it's just a trade off between
security and convince. Most patrons don't have a strong desire to bring
un-searched packages into movie theatres so few are much inconvenienced,
on the contrary many feel safer. It sounds like a smart move by the theatre
management to me. But feel free to boycott them and take you business to
a movie house that allows packages, the market will decide if it really was
wise or not.
