Child–free films – How did it take this long?

Vue Cinemas are to start running adult-only film screenings at their cinemas. Initially I thought they were going to start showing pornography, but further reading revealed this to be an even better idea.
From tomorrow, certain screenings of PG, 12A, 15 and 18 films will be for over-18s only.
Mark de Quervain (I kid ye not) from Vue said: “These screenings have been launched in direct response to overwhelming positive customer feedback obtained from extensive research studies and trials carried out over the past year.”
This rivals the election of some black guy as the best news I’ve heard all week.
The curse of the yob/chav/townie seems to be geographically-biased to the shittiest parts of Britain (I’ve lived in some of them, you see), but nevertheless I think this nationwide ban on yoof is generally a good thing.
All we need now is aptitude tests on entry so that adults-who-behave-like-children receive similar treatment.
