Do theaters have to enforce movie ratings?

The Wall Street Journal posted a story last week about how movie ratings aren’t law. They’re merely just suggestions. Some states and court cases have attempted to make the regulations stricter but the government has pushed back.

With the cinema industry in such a fragile state, could ratings be holding it back?

Theatres do not have to enforce ratings they are a guideline .

While the movie theatre ratings are guidelines that don’t have to be enforced, one must also bear in mind, however, that there are some movies that’re clearly not appropriate for kids to see due to lots of “blue” language, explicit sex, violence, and extreme graphicness.
