To the editor of THE EAGLE:
Regarding Monte Wasch’s Sept. 25 letter concerning the Beacon Cinema’s practices, I too was astounded when its personnel had the chutzpah to search through handbags and packages. It seemed like a blow to one’s civil liberties. But an even worse infraction was confiscating water bottles. I carry a small bottle of water in my handbag at all times. My doctor advised this because dehydration often brings on dizziness. Most of my friends always carry a bottle with them as well.
I now go to the Regal Cinemas at the mall or the Triplex in Great Barrington. I urge all thirsty friends to take their water bottles to those venues and to boycott the Beacon.
