What age is a child ticket for?
Customers aged 3 to 12 inclusive are considered as child prices for our cinema. However if you look a little old for your age you may be requested for ID. It is up to you to provide this to get a discount.

Do you require ID to buy cinema tickets?
ID may be required when purchasing tickets for :
- 12A, 15 and 18 certificate films
-Child and Senior tickets

We are required by law to refuse admission to a film performance to anyone who in the opinion of the our staff is below or appears to be below the minimum age limit age required by the relevant classification of the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) or local authority. Whilst we never like turning customers away or causing any disappointment or embarrassment, our license, and therefore business, does rely on our vigilance and as a prudent cinema operator we may insist on photo ID. We do ask our staff to question any customer they deem to be underage in order to ensure compliance and where one member of staff may feel it necessary to ask for ID, another may not. As photo (to include Date of Birth) documentary evidence is required, confirmation from another person cannot, unfortunately, be accepted. ID can be requested at any point as tickets can be purchased from our ATMs and website where these checks are not initially possible.

Proof of age cards can be obtained from  http://www.validateuk.co.uk/ or from www.pass-scheme.org.uk

Do you charge extra for 3D films?
Yes, there is small additional cost of £1.50 added to the standard ticket price for 3D films.

Can my children attend without a parent or guardian?
For U and PG certificate films only before 7pm. After this time we require all children to be accompanied.

What do the certificates mean?

It is impossible to predict what might upset any particular child. But a 'U' film should be suitable for audiences aged four years and over. U films should be set within a positive moral framework and should offer reassuring counterbalances to any violence, threat or horror.

PG (Parental Guidance)

General viewing, but some scenes may be unsuitable for young children. Unaccompanied children of any age may watch. A 'PG' film should not disturb a child aged around eight or older. However, parents are advised to consider whether the content may upset younger or more sensitive children.


Suitable for 12 years and over. No one younger than 12 may see a '12A' film in a cinema unless accompanied by an adult. Responsibility for allowing under-12s to view lies with the accompanying or supervising adult .


Suitable only for 15 years and over No-one younger than 15 may see a '15' film in a cinema. No-one younger than 15 may rent or buy a '15' rated video or DVD .


Suitable only for adults. No-one younger than 18 may see an '18' film in a cinema. No-one younger than 18 may rent or buy an '18' rated video.

Can I take a baby to the cinema?
