An adult 18 years of age or older must accompany a minor who wishes to gain admittance to a film classified as 14A or 18A. Theatres are required by law to enforce these age restrictions. The adult must accompany all the children in his/her care for the full duration of the screening. The adult cannot "drop off" the children in one screening while attending another screening. Verbal or written consent from a parent does not qualify as accompaniment.
