SAVOY -- The new IMAX theater comes with new rules to the Savoy 16. Theater managers say people need to leave their backpacks at home. It's so customers can feel safe and relaxed.

Managers say backpacks can sometimes be a distraction for movie-goers, especially when they're in the way. They can also make people feel uneasy, especially after last year's shooting in Colorado. If someone is caught bringing a backpack to the theater, it will be checked before they can see the movie.
