In the society, factors such as emotional breakdown, growing size of the urban middle class and weakening of the family foundation have increased social anomalies and crimes. The spread of Western culture and creation of cultural duality, loss of traditions, rising divorce rates, normalization of drug abuse, etc. are just some few examples of a wrong culture the cinema has brought to the society. This research seeks to investigate the role of the Iranian cinema in generating social anomies. The research method is descriptive-analytical based on statistical analyses. It gathers data via library sources, film analysis and questionnaires. The analysis method is based on an analysis of cinematic works, multivariate regression tests, semantic differential technique and outputs of the SPSS software. Statistical samples were randomly selected among elites and ordinary citizens. The findings suggest the effect of cinema on such subjects as normalization of norm-breaking, white divorce, divorce, migration and asylum seeking. The highest distribution of crime rates in the cinema falls under criminal offenses (31%), financial offenses (20%) and sexual offenses (14%), respectively. The research also found that failure to pay attention to the mentioned issues could culminate in sociological anomalies within the social context.
