Re: Kids treated badly at the movie theater

I WHOLEHEARTEDELY support the movie theaters decision to do this! It costs crazy money to go see a movie and nothing irks me more than going to an evening/late show of an R rated movie only to be subjected to kids acting a fool because they're either bored or the movie is too intense for them.
It also seems this is only limited to shows in the evening. If one wants to take their young children to an R rated movie, you can still do so but must go at an early time. I think that's fair. As a parent, I never took my son to questionable movies in the evening when he was younger. I knew there'd be a good chance he would not enjoy the movie and I didn't think it would be fair to other folks to have to listen to my kid act a fool. That meant that I rarely went to the movie theater when he was younger. When you become a parent, there are things you can't do when you were child free, and that was one of them.
