Some teenagers won't be able to go to the movie alone under a new policy at a local theatre.Starting this Friday, the Kerasotes Showplace in Hobart, Indiana will restrict all weekend shows after 6 p.m. to adults 18 years or older.

Those 17 years or younger may attend only if they are accompanied by a parent.

There have been a number of reported incidents in recent months involving unruly teens near the theatre.

The company says the new policy is in response to customer suggestions.

On weeknights, the same restriction applies beginning at 9 p.m.
