Please note we are required to refuse admission to customers who do not have satisfactory proof of age to see a particular film despite assurances from a parent or guardian. These are the terms of the licence under which the Stag operates and we have to stay strictly within the terms of this licence. We are sorry if this external control causes you any inconvenience.
The classifications of the films we show are those specified by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC).
Below are details of each classification as defined by the BBFC.
|A U-rated film should be suitable for audiences aged four years and over, although it is impossible to predict what might upset a child. U-rated films should be set within a positive moral framework and should offer reassuring counterbalances to any violence, threat or horror.|
|Parental Guidance. General viewing, but some scenes may be unsuitable for young children. Unaccompanied children of any age may watch a PG-rated film. A PG-rated film should not disturb a child aged eight or older. Parents are advised to consider whether the content may upset younger or more sensitive children.|
|Suitable for 12 years and over. An adult may take a younger child if, in their judgement, the film is suitable for that particular child. In such circumstances, responsibility for allowing a child under 12 to view lies with the accompanying adult.|
|Suitable for 12 years and over.
|Suitable only for 15 years and over. No-one younger than 15 may see a 15-rated 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-rated film in a cinema. No-one younger than 18 may rent or buy an 18-rated video.
