AMC theater chain bans small children from some night movies

There are 54 comments on the Columbus Dispatch story from Jan 4, 2010, titled AMC theater chain bans small children from some night movies. In it, Columbus Dispatch reports that:

Bad news for toddlers ... ... and good news for everyone else. The AMC theater chain -- which has three central Ohio locations at Dublin Village, Easton and Lennox -- has instituted a new rule barring children younger than 6 from attending an R-rated movie after 6 p.m. . As much as I'd love to say that the rule is silly and unnecessary, I can't.

wanted people to know that amc easton is not repeat not the place to go to. Serioulsy folks they are racial to us black folks they tell us we cannot bring outside food and drink inside the theatre that it is against there rules yet i see manangers and supervisors walk right past people with there food. Thats not fair especially when you tell people who wanyt to come see a movie hey, no outside food and drink. along with that prices for tickets have skyrocketed to 0.50 and for the imax 14.50 used to be 11.00. Why is this theatre getting so expensive? I overheard 2 cops talking they said they would not bring there families to the theatre that they are too expensive. Folks do everything you can to ban this theatre they are getting to big for they britches. I know i will not go back there. I know folks who work there are just doing they job but to tell hard working people they cant bring food in that you would rather have people buy there expensive crappy food is ridiculouis things never used to be this way too bad soemday there will not be anybody going there.

yeah amc has gone down hill thats for sure. I dont know about the racial part but i do know that they do not allow outside foor or drink in and thats fine with me. Folks who work the concession stand thats where there paychecks come from not ticket sales. Ticket sales pay for the rental of the movie. so i can see where the thetare raised prices iam sure there over head is expensive and most places like amc, rave and cinemark dont usually pay crap. It all goes to management who dont work they hang around like most amc managers and the higher ups they do nothing. seriously when was the last time you saw a amc manager earning his or her keep? You wont see them people working up a sweat hell no they hide from that crap i used to manage a amc theatre 25 years ago nothing has changed. Big managers get bonus for sales and attendance if they go over projected sales and people figures. But things at easton have to change thats for sure its too easy for kids to steal candy there they have it out in the open anybody can help they selves. And lastly i asked a gentlemena named James when a theatre lket out he checked his clipboard and had already marked out the time by mistake but i followed these folks into a thetare and saw how trash is thrown under the seats not picked up. I asked another person what time a theatre got out and was told to wait outside that they were behind. hey PEOPLE WE PAY TOO MUCH TO GO TO A TRASHY THEATRE I WILL CALL EASTON IN THE MORNING THIS IS RIDICULOUS.

right on lfod i have seen people letting the bros in but this one usher dude goes around checking doors so i have a feeling this is about to stop. Damn concession prices are high your right and the food tastes like last weeks left-overs or something mom made that came out tasting like crap. easton needs to get there s... together they have racial managers there and this has to stop, first thing a white cop does is look for a brother stirring up the trouble and its not the balck man half the time. thats why i dont go there anymore to much drama and bs.

yo uncle ernie whats up? So do you speak for all us black folks. I dont think so sounds to me like you have issues from when you worked the theatre like you need to let it die my man. Amc easton has a lot of issues thats for sure and they dont seem to care thats the impression i have is cause i have been asked to leave a few times by fat dumb white cops with a chip on there shoulder the main reason brothers dont kick that but is cause they got guns. Now if they didnt it would be a different ball game if you know what i mean.Racial cops in this town, there are way too many to mention but when you have racial cops working at a damn movie theatre this is getting ridiculous. Put a black cop in there who is cool and you wont have the problems you have now. But amc sucks so this crap will stay the same as long as whitey runs the theatre. sad

The AMC I go to is great. They all have the same rules, no children after six and no outside food and drink and I think it's great because it stops trashy people from ruining the theatre.

How about banning the brothers from late night movies? They cause more problems and are louder than kids are.

Good.

Raise the prices some more. After they've driven all of you out, I might come back.

I haven't been there in over five years.

Now that's a good way to keep you people out: Metal Detectors. I hope someone from AMC is reading this.

Who the he'll brings a child younger than 14 , let alone 6, to a R-rated movie. Just plain bad parenting!!! Good job AMC. I would go even further to ban them from ALL screenings, not just the after 6:00PM screenings.

Folks, I know spelling is tricky and that's okay. But if you are having so much trouble, you might consider adding a program called spell check to your computer.

They ought to ban small children from ALL movies, except for those aimed directly at the 4 and younger set (e.g. Barney, Teletubbies, Thomas the Tank Engine, Disney sh*t).

And black folks are total idiots in the movie theater, too. There ought to be segragated showings, lol!
Woohoo

Once I went to the AMC Easton theater, and the blacks were causing such a commotion, I couldn't even hear the dialog. We ended up leaving because we were getting absolutely nothing out of the movie (just listening to a bunch of a$$ h0 le$).
