Movie Theaters No Longer Allowing Children to see PG movies

Welcome to Forumosa's corner for moms and dads to talk about the issues involved in parenting in Taiwan.

Movie Theaters No Longer Allowing Children to see PG movies

Postby Mordeth » 16 May 2016, 13:05

My son and I have watched all the Marvel movies in the theater (except Deadpool). And yesterday they wouldn't let him in to see Captain America: Civil War as he is not yet 12. In Canada PG is a warning.....but it's up to the Parents Guidance. Here they are being strict about it now. Is this just my local theater or are others having this problem?

I wonder if it's this particular movie, because one of my 11-year-old students told me the exact scenario happened last weekend when he went to see Captain America at Tai Mall in Taoyuan. He was going to the movie with his mom, but the ticket seller still asked him his age and for his ID. He told them he was 12 and forgot his ID. His mom backed up the lie. Then later, as they were entering the theater itself, the door attendant asked his age and birthyear. He knew the "right" answers and they let him inside with his mom. It does seem unusual.

Mordeth is a foreigner. Better make sure these foreign fathers are not corrupting the descendants of the Yellor Emperor with their Western movies :D :D
