Using The Motion Picture Association of America’s rating system and its suggested suitability of films for certain ages as a guideline, The Lindsay prefers that parents accompany younger patrons when they purchase tickets for R-rated films. The Theater also understands that one parent may bring a group of younger patrons, their own children and the children’s friends to the show. Our crew members routinely will ask young moviegoers’ their ages and if their parents or guardians know they are attending the film. This process will be in place for each R-rated film, at the Theater’s discretion. As a community asset, the Theater works in good faith with patrons of all ages.
