Kids under the age of 17 are no longer allowed at Sanford’s only movie theater on weekend nights without adult supervision.
Spring Lane Cinemas, which announced new ownership earlier this year, announced the policy change via Facebook back in October, stating in a follow up comment that “there have been a lot of issues with unsupervised children,” including fights. The policy says children under 17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian older than 21 after 6 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
A person answering the phone at the theater on Monday told The Rant that the new policy went into effect on Oct. 2 and that it was something the company was “trying out” to see if it curbed the number of incidents. The person did not know if the change was permanent.
A review of the Sanford Police Department’s P2C crime reporting system shows two thefts from vehicles in the theater’s parking lot in 2019, but no criminal reports regarding fights.
Good for you, Sanford Cinema! Nothing changes if nothing changes and it takes guts too do so. So good for you. I think the curfew is very reasonable
The only problem the 21 year old or older is just as bad as the child they have to accompany.
STOP the speeding on Spring Lane, stop the “joy” riding around the Cinema, shopping center and up and down the street. Police do your job at night. Finally saw one Police Officer from SANFORD give people tickets the other day for speeding, thank you.
