Towson Cinemark Moves Youth Curfew Earlier on Fridays and Saturdays

The Towson Cinemark movie theater on East Joppa Road is following the Towson Town Center’s lead in further limiting the admittance of unaccompanied minors, according to reporting in the Baltimore Sun.

Previously, Towson Cinemark refused admittance to patrons under the age of 17 after 9 p.m. unless accompanied by their legal guardian. Recently that curfew was moved up to 5 p.m. for Fridays and Saturdays.

Patrick Corocran, of the National Association of Theater Owners, told The Sun that a youth curfew is a reasonable response to “having trouble with a small group of [customers] being rowdy.” It’s just too bad that it gives children one less thing to do on the weekend.

But, as awlays, the worst part is the fine print. According to the notice on Towson Cinemark’s website, “Parents must stay and watch the same movie with their child.” (Cue Wilhelm scream.)
