A trip to the movies includes age restrictions on the films, the bar and often gaming machines at the premises
Most countries have a method of age classification for films shown in cinemas and movie theaters. These could be graduated from 12, to 15, to 18 or fixed be specific local licensing conditions
How can the Age Check Certification Scheme help cinemas?
We test that age check systems work. We do this through audits, test purchasing and mystery shopping. We also provide the training that you need for your staff and all of the industry standard signage and materials for a professional approach.
Why do I have to get this done?
Local laws place obligations on cinemas to take steps to prevent the underage supply of age restricted goods. The penalties for failing to comply can be substantial including the forced closure of your business. You can find out more about the local laws that apply here.
What posters and materials do I need to be compliant?
You may be required to display certain posters or warnings in relation to particular products. This is most common for retailers or tobacco and alcohol. Our shop has all of the materials, posters, badges, signs and policies that you need to comply with local laws.
