What do you think about trailers in cinemas and on TV?

For many years, Australian parents have been able to take their children to the cinema,  with some confidence that they were unlikely to be exposed to trailers for movies that are higher classified than the one they've chosen to see.
However, the cinemas are pushing for rules like TV has,  so that they can show "toned-down" trailers for higher classified films with lower classified features. 
The TV stations can show trailers for  M or MA15+ movies or programs in,  say PG programs,  so long as the content of the trailer is no more than PG.  

This survey is your opportunity to tell us what you think about this push by cinemas, and also what you think about present TV practices with trailers.

This survey should take you no longer than 5 minutes
 

* 1. Thinking about taking your children (under 14) to the cinema, tell us whether you agree or disagree with the following statements

  strongly agree somewhat agree neutral somewhat disagree strongly disagree
The trailers we usually see are OK by me
The trailers are sometimes too scary
I sometimes see trailers that would seem to have a higher classification than the movie we've chosen
Trailers provide me with an accurate impression of what might suit my family 

* 2. Thinking about your children (under 14 years) watching TV at home, tell us what you think about trailers on TV.

  strongly agree somewhat agree neutral somewhat disagree strongly disagree
I am happy with the content of trailers that they see on TV
I'm unhappy because I can't anticipate which trailers are going to be shown 
Trailers allow me to find out what's coming up that will suit my family
Many trailers are unsuitable for the time of day they are shown
Too many trailers have content that is more adult than the program being watched

* 3. Thinking about taking your children to the cinema, what do you think about changing the rules for trailers so films,  which have a higher classification than the feature, can be promoted ( so long as the content of the trailer matches that of the feature).

  strongly agree somewhat agree neutral somewhat disagree strongly disagree
I'm happy for this change to take place
I do not want this change as it will allow the promotion of films I might not want my children to see  
I do not want this change as it could mislead my children into thinking such films will be OK for them
I do not think this change will work given my experience with “toned-down” trailers on free-to air TV
I want to choose a movie outing that will be age-appropriate for my children, and so the trailers should only be for films that have the same classification as the feature.
If the new rule comes in I may be less inclined to take my children to the cinema

* 4. your postcode

* 5. the age of your children (tick all that apply)

* 6. Your sex

* 7. Is there anything else you'd like to say?
