Movie-goers can carry their own food, water bottles to theatres, reveals RTI query

The Hyderabad police was responding to an RTI query filed by city-based activist Vijay Gopal.

The Hyderabad City police, in an RTI query, have said that multiplexes and theatres cannot restrict movie-goers from carrying food and water bottles to the cinema hall. Responding to the RTI query filed by Hyderabad-based anti-corruption activist Vijay Gopal, the police have clarified there are no curbs by law to carry food and water, and a complaint can be filed with the Legal Metrology Department who will check if there are any violation of law.

Under the Cinema Regulation Act of 1955, there are no restrictions in letting a customer carry his own snack box or water bottles. Despite the law, most multiplexes do not allow customers to carry food or beverages citing security issues.

It is because of this wonderful activist that charges for parking in malls in Hyderabad was removed about 2-3 years ago as it was illegal. Incase any of you are interested in getting occasional updates, you can join their Telegram channel - Forum Against Corruption . There is also provision to donate 25 rupees or above incase you wish to support him.
