South Bend theater sets curfew on teens

South Bend theater sets curfew on teens

I see this as a sort of interesting manuever. My immediate reaction is to say that if the kids are interested in using the venue as a social gathering place, then perhaps the theater should take more initiative in harnessing that. (Sort of like how the studios and distributors should focus more of their effort on securely providing downloadable film content instead of preventing piracy.) One of my favorite things about going to the movies was always the social dynamic.

However, I agree with the idea that the theater is a placeto watch movies and the customers should first and foremost be afforded the ability to do that. And given the nature and scale of the errant activity, something had to be done. Which isn't to say that there isn't a more productive solution, but this is an interesting dilemna.
