SACRAMENTO, Ca. -- Drivers in Sacramento apparently don't have to buy a ticket to watch the newly-released "50 Shades of Grey," and some parents aren't happy about it.

Fox 40 reports that a drive-in movie theater on Highway 50 features six screens, which are clearly visible from the road. That means it's visible by thousands of people of every age each hour of the day.

Fox 40 says it's gotten complaints from residents.

Parent John Schmidt said he recently brought his 12- and 10-year-old sons to the drive-in, and they "were very interested watching it coming in."

“I’d think it’s a safety issue; people trying to sneak a peek as they are going 70 miles-an-hour down the freeway and looking not where they are supposed to be going, but looking at the movie,” Schmidt told Fox 40.

The theater's general manager could not be reached for comment.
