AMC Theaters / rated r previews shown to young kids

1 AMC Orchard 12Thornton, CO, United States Review updated:

I took my 4 year old son to see the new Ice Age movie. The audience full of young kids were excited as the previews started. To everyone's shock the preview for the horror movie The Final Destination started (lots of explosions, screams, crushings, and decapitations). Kids began to cry as the next preview started with a scream, for the new Orphan horror movie. We were all rushing our kids out of there, but the bad dream damage was done. We found the kids that seemed to be running the place, and they apparently had put the wrong movie on. They put the right movie on and gave everyone free passes, but still where is the accountability? A theater full of children should not have been subjected to that sort of careless error. We try to monitor what our children watch, and this place just blew that out of the water. Wish the manager of the place would have been here to console my son in the middle of the night, to see the damage. They are a media outlet, and with that comes responsibility (just ask Janet, Imos, etc...). They completely failed their responsibilities on this one.

    Ok first of all I work at an AMC and as an associate I don't get paid enough to care about your kid. It was an honest mistake the projectionist made so stop tooting your horn and get over it. Your kid will be fine, just look at ME! :) lol
