Researcher draws his study on the topic of effects on the youth of GCUF because in the view of researcher it is the major social problem of a society that the youth of society is in immature hands. The cinema -or the 7th art as referred by some- has had a major impact on young ages for decades now. As in teenage hood individuals find themselves at a predicament, having to foster their personality and cultivate their thinking and their interests, cinema constitutes a vital influence. Through movies, people are able to assess situations, discriminate the “good” and the “bad”. As Aristotle said, via the ancient Greek theatre, the audience has the opportunity to watch imaginary situations, commiserate with the protagonists and worry about his own destiny. For instance, in “Helen” of Euripides, Helen is forced to stay away from the husband Menelaus.
Thus, the viewers develop worries that this might append to them as well. In this way, “oiktos” (pity) and “phobos” (fear) emerge and the theyis rendered an educational experience for the individuals. Like so, nowadays, cinema portrays a very educational role, as youth can learn to think, to be opinionated. Nevertheless, sometimes, the cinema can have bad influence, especially with the excessive amount of violence and nudity. Therefore, it is in our interest to protect and preserve the value of good cinema and stop this epidemic of violence, fighting and by all means, pornographic industry, for the sake of
youngsters. I hope I gave you an insight of the effects of cinema on teenagers.
Movies definitely impact the youth. Young people who have not had ample time to develop the brain capacity to evaluate the actual consequences of their actions.
Kids will copy what they see, without being able to consider what the risk is. Remember the movie The Program? I believe it showed some young people lying down on the center line of a road – and a bunch of incidents happened in real life after that, and of course, to much more negative results.
There are many incidents of learning new lingo from movies. I would say that Clueless gave us more slang / catch phrases than anything else in recent memory. “Whatever” “as if” “I’m out tie” to name a few. They created a way of speaking that filtered through the youth of the nation and actually stuck for quite awhile. I still hear these phrases off and on today.
And then I could always bring up the horrifying rise in teen sexual activity. Pretty much every movie out there portrays fornication as normal and expected behavior. But … the movies don’t show the reality of what happens in the lives of those involved after the fact. There are so many more teen pregnancies and ruined lives today than there were in the 50’s when couples slept in twin beds on TV. 🙂 Sex is all around us, and the message is clear, “if you’re not sleeping around with lots of people, there’s something wrong with you” and we’re seeing the ruined lives to prove that message is getting into their heads. There are also some effects of cinemas on the people especially on the youth of GCUF. It affects the studies, morality, ethics and the cultural innovation of the university youth.
Key terms: cinema, obscenity, immorality, Lessing of ethics, studies

Lessing of ethics: ethics teach us how to present you in the society. You can say it the pathway to the Jinnah in the ideology of Islam. It teaches us how to speak, how to learn, what is the ideology of sin and virtue? And each and every thing which is taught to us by Holy Prophet (S.A.W. W)
Studies: studies are the knowledge which we gain from any institution. Studies main objective in the modern society is to get a good job.
