At the movie batman vs superman, there was a guy dressed like batman who also was wearing a cape and armor. Staff asked him to take off his mask twice and he was behind us in line. I looked back to see why and he said in a low, batman voice "you've heard about the shooting in Colorado, right?...... That's why they made me take off my mask."
Inside the theatre he was acting really nervous/hyper and was covering his face with his cape saying "I can't let anyone see my identity" To his friend.
I mean, he could have been just a big geek. But we walked out and reported it to the manager and got a refund. Didn't feel comfortable. Probably overreacted though haha.

Well, you can't be too careful nowadays, unfortunately. My colleague told me just the other day that in church the week before a man was in the parking lot with a black gym bag and acting 'odd'. He then went into the church during mass and put the bag at the back, then I think left and then returned, still acting odd. Someone of stature in the church had the man open the bag to inspect and he had a brick in it. Weird. They were very nervous... You did the right thing. Everyone has to be very aware of their surroundings and then decide if they are 'comfortable' or not. All you can do I guess.


Edit: Neglected to mention that this same church had a small bomb planted (that was detonated) left at the door, along with another church in town at the same time, less than a year ago. FBI has not identified anyone connected to the events yet.

Oh wow that is scary. Who knows what he was planning to do or what have happened if that man wouldn't have asked to see what was in there. And I totally agree, you can't be too careful nowadays. It felt drastic leaving a movie for that situation but at the same time I was so uncomfortable that I wasn't going to enjoy it anyways. Better to be safe than sorry.

Probably a childish prankster, and obsessed Batman lover. People should be careful but not paranoid...
If you are so scared, you should watch movies at home.

As silly as it may sound to some people, perhaps theaters should start banning masks if it keeps growing as a concern.

Even banks have signs on their doors, "Please remove all caps and sunglasses"

Handbags are being searched these days before entering theaters. Masks or other disguises should not be allowed at mass gatherings in this day and age. At least not by other than small children.

I think real terrorist/mass shooter etc. would not try to make everyone suspicious to his behavior/clothing, before his action.

BTW: our politicians help the terrorists every time they use fear as a campaign tactic. The press helps every time it writes scare stories about the plot and the threat. And if we're terrified, and we share that fear, we help them too. All of these actions intensify and repeat the terrorists' actions, and increase the effects of their terror.
We are so terrorized, that we act paranoid when someone check the watch, have sunglasses on, look around or leave a bag behind.
