A R-rated - Under 17 Requires Accompanying Parent or Adult Guardian.

Cinemas in the United States have the ability to ban anyone from being admitted in R-rated films without showing proof of their age.

Tennessee state law set the minimum age to view an R-rated film (including NC-17) in theaters without adult accompaniment at 18. It was enacted in 1989 and it is the only state in the US where the minimum viewing age is higher.
