A. Smoking is prohibited and is unlawful in every publicly or privately owned motion picture theater which is open to the public for the primary purpose of exhibiting any motion picture in all areas except either in that area commonly known as the lobby, or in areas not open to the public. Every owner and/or manager of such theater shall post signs conspicuously in the lobby stating that smoking is prohibited within the theater and such information shall be shown upon the screen for at least five seconds before showing feature motion pictures.
B. Where not otherwise prohibited by law, smoking may be prohibited within all or any portion of any auditorium or other enclosed facility which is open to the public for the purpose of exhibiting any stage drama, musical recital, athletic event or any other performance or event open to the public upon the posting of signs in those certain areas where smoking is prohibited as determined by the owner or person in control of said facility or portion thereof. Said signs shall be posted conspicuously in the areas where smoking is prohibited and shall conform to the specifications set forth in Section 6.30.120 of this chapter. The term “person in control of said facility or portion thereof” as used in this section shall mean any person or entity which has leased, rented, hired or otherwise obtained the right to use of such facility or portion thereof for the purpose of exhibiting such performance or event to the public. Nothing contained herein shall require the owner or person in control of such facility or portion thereof to designate and post such facility or portion thereof as a nonsmoking area except in those certain facilities and areas where smoking is prohibited by the fire marshal or by any other law, ordinance or regulation.
