Why movie theaters can frequently pose dangers

Going to a movie theater is a great activity for people of all ages, making it possible for the highest quality movies to be displayed on the big screen. While the vast majority of people will be satisfied with their experience at the movie theater, unfortunately, countless people become injured every year because of unsafe conditions.

Those with limited mobility or a disability may be particularly vulnerable to falls and other accidents at a movie theater. The premises owner has the legal duty to ensure that their movie theater is safe for all visitors, regardless of one's disability or medical condition. It is important to understand the most common ways in which visitors are injured at movie theaters, and how to take action if you are a victim of inadequate safety standards in a California theater.

Poor lighting

For obvious reasons, it is necessary for a movie theater to be dark when showing a movie. This helps to improve the atmosphere and the quality of the viewing experience. However, it still needs to be possible for guests to enter and exit the movie theater in a safe way during the movie. Steps should be lit by subtle lighting and glowing strips to ensure that they can be safely navigated. If they are not and you experience a fall that leads to an injury, it is likely that you will be able to make a successful premises liability claim.

Dangerous stairs

As well as being well lit, stairs should be well maintained. Unevenly ascending steps can cause people to trip when they are using them. Similarly, broken steps or steps littered with popcorn containers and discarded drinks can be a dangerous hazard.

Faulty escalators

Escalators are often used in movie theaters by those who cannot easily take the stairs. They should move in a stable and predictable way. If escalators jolt or move too quickly, they may cause the user of the escalator to fall from height.

If you have been injured during your visit to a movie theater, it is important to be aware of your rights. By making a premises liability claim, you may be able to recover monetary damages to compensate you for the pain and suffering that you endured.
