Canadian cinema fined $10,000 for privacy invasion over bag search

Staff at the theater were searching customers’ bags for video equipment that could be used for movie piracy.Security guards didn’t find any video equipment in the family’s bags, but did turn up a large selection of snack food, which they asked the family to take back to their vehicle, Lurie said.

“They did so willingly. But they continued the search of the bags and while searching they also uncovered some birth control pills belonging to the older daughter,” Lurie said.

“Needless to say the mother was not pleased to find out in this manner that her daughter had those pills in her possession.”
