BIRMINGHAM, Mich. (AP) - The American Civil Liberties Union's Michigan chapter is calling on a suburban Michigan movie theater executive to end a policy the civil rights group says discriminates against teens.
The Oakland Press reports ACLU of Michigan wants Emagine Entertainment CEO Paul Glantz to end a policy at the new Emagine Palladium in Birmingham that bars minors unless they are accompanied by an adult or have a membership that costs $350 annually.
ACLU officials say the policy violates the state's Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act.
The newspaper reports Glantz declined to comment on the letter. The Associated Press also left a message seeking comment.
