As a small aside from the discussion regarding rated movies, I just
recently realized the MPAA rating system is not only a voluntary
process, but that it is totally up to the theater as to whether they
enforce the ratings guidelines, since it is exactly that, a guideline,
and a recommendation.

Now, even though it is not a law, I wonder how many theaters would allow
an underage viewer to pay and watch a rated R movie without adult
supervision? Also, I wonder how many parents and underage viewers
realize this? I think sometimes people think something is a law when in
actuality it isn't.

Just an observation...

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
