40. If the child was out of control in such a way that he was
SERIOUSLY interfering with the enjoyment of the movie for other patrons, then the parents had an obligation to remove the child. This would be similar to a case where an infant or toddler won't stop crying. But if the child was simply laughing louder, longer and differently, then the patrons who complained and the employee who ejected the boy need to be educated in what cp and autism are, and how both conditions impact speech and behavior; they needed to be more understanding and tolerant IMHO.
