    What do you guys think about Rave Motion Pictures (cinemas)?

    * Their website has no posted rules.

    * The location i've been to has no posted prohibitions.

    * The security guards OC, so firearms are already present to the consternation of any hoplophobes.

    * A google search for "rave motion pictures weapons OR firearms OR guns" returns no relevant results.

    * A forum post by what seems to be a customer discussing the rules he read off the back of his ticket(?) makes no mention of any rules regarding weapons. Disorderly conduct of every sort is prohibited (yay!), but nothing more.

    So, has anybody tried it out? I've tempted to myself, although I'm reluctant to plan any trips to the cinema with friends around it, in the event I am not allowed to watch the movie.

    Perhaps, in light of many big-box cinemas' reluctance to encourage an environment safe for the law-abiding rather than the criminal, Northern Virginians might consider a group movie-going adventure? Or are we too old for that kind of thing?

    Digging up an old thread to see if anyone has had recent experience at Rave Cinemas Fairfax...

    Trying to find a nearby theater showing 2016 that is not a VDZ. Don't really want to drive out there and find a no-guns sign or be turned away when there are not viable alternatives to take my business to near-by.

    Not sure if you are new, but most folks who OC do NOT call and ask as it opens up for BAD policy decisions. If they have no policy either way that is better than asking and having them create a policy since they didn't have one. Much better to go off others' EXPERIENCE.

    Why not just go to the movies by yourself, someone has to be the test case. You can report back and let us know how it went.
    When I lived in NoVA I took my kids to the movies on occasion (Centreville/Manassas) and never had an issue. I learned later that both theaters were posted (hidden on the bottom of a window no where near the entrance door) but no one ever asked me to leave.
    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.
