With all the controversey about our industry marketing adult material to underage kids, I have adopted the policy of showing trailers for R rated movies only on R rated films.

blackwell should be commended for there decision. Although I think that is one of many possible solutions. Closer monitoring of the different screens are needed also. Because lets face it; kids do sneak in to other movies. More stingent measures at the ticket takers window and not allowing under age children into the 'R' rated movies even if they are with an adult.
Its true that the movie industry, those who produce the movies we watch have work to do on the rating system but we as movie house owners must do our part as well. While we may upset some of our patrons, we must think of the betterment of the whole.

Oh God! Are we back on ratings? When Mom and Dad stop renting stacks of R rated videos for their kids I'll increase my police work on behalf of a disinterested populace. When television gets less R in general I'll become the nation's ever vigilant watch dog. When cable takes off all the R stuff I'll hold the line of our childrens morals. Until then: why me? Until then: I'll use my judgement.

The ratings don't need to be changed.

The way the ratings are enforced don't need to be changed.

The way films get rated needs to change.

Don't ask me how.

I went to see it at a nice 16-plex in the next town. The Contender only had
50 people in it for a 7:20 pm show in a 400 seat auditorium. At 10:00 pm I
looked in at the other shows. Meet the parents was packed in a 400 seat
house! I tried to see the 10:00 pm show of The Exorcist but what I saw was
very indicative of the industry right now. All these kids kept sneaking in
in groups of 4,5 or 6. They were really obvious as to what they were doing.
Now don't get me wrong, I don't see a problem with a bunch of 12 and 13 year
old kids seeing The Exorcist, but I knew they would be bored by the movie.
They were just there for the juicy bits. Then the paying public started
showing up and I could tell that they were the paying public because they
were older and had popcorn and drinks and they couldn't find a seat. They
couldn't find a seat because there were at least 25 people in that
auditorium who didn't buy tickets, me included. But I felt bad and left.
