Age restrictions for a Lansing theater near you
LANSING, Michigan – There are changes in Celebration Cinema, and if you’re under 16 you probably won’t like them.
“We ask children 15 years and younger to come to the evening shows with an adult,” said Emily Loeks, Director of Community Affairs at Studio C.
The Unaccompanied Minor Policy goes into effect on October 13th for all theaters owned by Studio C.
Lokes went on to explain the policy by saying, “By that we mean someone who joins your group, who is 18 years of age or older, who is a ticket buyer and who is responsible for the group of younger children throughout their film experience. “
Loeks told Fox 47 the decision had to be made due to behavioral issues.
“Our theater managers have had some challenges dealing with some disruptive behavior problems with larger and larger groups of young teenagers,” she said.
The age limit was set at 15 because 16 year olds can drive themselves, they can do things on their own.
Loeks said, “There are reasons you would want an adult to accompany you, both for safety reasons and for the general atmosphere of the theater.”
After 5:00 p.m., children up to the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult and valid ID is required as proof of age.
