Smoke-Free Movies

Smoking imagery in movies glamorizes and normalizes tobacco use. The Surgeon General identifies smoking in movies as an influence on youth smoking.

Reality Check youth work to build support for an R-rating in movies that depict tobacco use by:

  • Educating the public
  • Building local support
  • Engaging local cinema owners
  • Mobilizing parents, community members & youth to advocate with the MPAA
