I'm talking being dropped off at the door before it starts and picked up after outside... meaning no parental supervision at all in the theater.
Right now, I'm thinking 13 as the absolute youngest and only if I know and trust the other kids my kid is going with. But even then, only on rare occasion and if the kid is known for being smart, mature and responsible.
I'm just curious for the opinions of other parents to see how far out of touch and paranoid I am... I know someone who is considering it for her 11 year old (who is beautiful and looks 16+ but is really naive) and it just seemed far out there to me like just asking for trouble - because she just wouldn't know what to do if she got into a situation with older boys bothering her. (She has this problem at school and finds them 'annoying')
