  • Haha well me and two of my friends decided to go to the movies, (it was spur of the moment), we wanted to see an R rated movie. I was 22, my friends were 19 and 20, so we were all old enough, but the lady wouldn't sell us tickets because only one of us had an ID. We bought tickets to a different movie and snuck into the R rated one. We got kicked out about 40 minutes into the movie lol :p

  • It honestly depends on the theater. They're supposed to ID for movies either way, though that's not always the case. I thought being 17 years old was fine for seeing movies, though. All I know is I still get carded, but I look young, too.

  • They'll ID you. But the minimum age is 17 so if you're 17 what's the problem.

  • Based on looks, if you look big and/or have decent facial hair, you're good to go.

  • It's literally never happened to me, even when I was younger.
