    Default CC in Walnut Street Theater

    Ugh...the wife bought tickets to musical. Lucky me. ;-)

    Does anyone know about CC at the Walnut Street Theater in Philly? Metal detectors? Posted signs? Or good to go?

    Fyi....I have my LTC.

    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to PAFOA!

    I'm afraid I have no idea about the theater. Nothing found on the website after looking for a few mins.

    It sounds like what you just said was: Personally when I hear of mass murder events I put the comfort of others above the security and protection of my own family.

    I can tell you that from my standpoint that it's not always about my final destination that makes me carry a firearm, but the process of getting there and back that worries me. The sanctity of a musical in a popular theater doesn't provide the security that I wish to have when the show is over and walking back to my vehicle parked in some parking lot.

    There are other things in the world going on besides what goes on in the theater. As we see from today's accounts, sick and demented people choose to act ANYWHERE and at any time of the day. Thinking you are secure and nothing is going to happen simply because it is daylight outside or you are in a gun restricted zone or building is nothing more than being an ostrich with it's head buried in the sand.

    Any update on this? I am going there this week and I want to make sure I am able to CC, especially since there was a flash mob not too far this past weekend. Any help would be appreciated.

    I CCed at the Kimmel Center a few years ago. The other area theaters shouldn't be a problem.
