Do you need ID for a 15 film Vue?
Yes they have to check ID. It's the law as with all age restricted things.
No-one under 15 is allowed to see a 15 film at the cinema. 15 rated works are not suitable for children under 15 years of age.
Children up to and including the age of 14 can use child tickets. 15 to 17 year olds are charged as a student price (proof of age may be required). 18 years and above should purchase adult or student tickets (proof of student status will be required). Free for infants under 18 months old.
Ask if they admit children to age-restricted movies as long as an adult purchases their ticket for them. If they don't, see if they'll admit you if you're accompanied by an adult into the theater. Go to your parent. Ask them to see the movie with you or to simply buy the ticket for you when they drop you off.
Responsibility for allowing under-12s to view lies with the accompanying or supervising adult. (15) 15 No-one younger than 15 may see a '15' film in a cinema. (18) 18 No-one younger than 18 may see an '18' film in a cinema.
Prove your age with a digital ID
A digital ID is a safe way to prove your age at the cinema using your phone. Setting it up takes only a few minutes - all you need is an ID document and photo. Once you're verified, you're set up for life and you can enjoy the magic of the big screen without distraction.
Yes they do, not just at Vue cinemas but other major cinema chains. It wasn't accepted but to be fair the woman that served us was a jobsworth, manager come along and accepted the bus pass. But in answer to your question yes they ask for a valid form of ID, whether it be a passport or drivers license.
Nope. A 15 rating means nobody under 15 is allowed full stop. It's illegal. 12A films are the ones where younger kids can go with a parent/ adult.
The typical age for U.S. 9th grade students is 14 to 15 years.
Age ratings are recommendations for parents and carers to help them decide what is appropriate for their child depending on what stage of development they are at. Legally, these must be followed by cinemas, and no one under the age of 12, 15 or 18 can purchase a film with those ratings.
What does a 15 mean at the cinema?
Films classified 15A have been deemed appropriate for viewers of fifteen and over. However, they can also be seen by younger children - provided they are accompanied by an adult who has deemed the film appropriate viewing for that child.
A digital ID is a safe way to prove your age and identity using your phone – online and in person.
Candidate is required to present two forms of original (no photo copies or digital IDs), valid (unexpired) IDs; one form as a primary ID (government issued with name, recent recognizable photo, and signature) and one form as a secondary ID (with at least a name and signature, or name and recent recognizable photo).
Children under the age of 15 may not legally watch, buy or hire MA 15+ rated material unless they are in the company of a parent or adult guardian. Children under the age of 15 who go to the cinema to see an MA 15+ film must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian for the duration of the film.
In the United States as of 1995, minor is generally legally defined as a person under the age of 18.
Students are often 17–18 years old. Twelfth graders are referred to as Seniors. Many students consider the twelfth grade, also known as the senior year of high school, a year to relax and prepare for the transition out of their old lives into college/university or the workplace.
The eighth grade is the ninth school year, the second, third, fourth, or final year of middle school, or the second and/or final year of junior high school, and comes after 7th grade. Usually, students are 13–14 years old in this stage of education.
To get into a 12A or 15 rated movie at Vue you are required to take photo ID. The only photo ID that 12-15 year olds are likely to have is a passport not a driving licence as noted on Vue website.
All cinemas in the U.K. have a premises license that has restricting access to underage children as part of their licensing conditions. So yes, trying to get into a 15 film (I'd guess The Batman) when you're under 15 is likely to be a problem.
Films classified 12A and video works classified 12 contain material that is not generally suitable for children aged under 12. No one younger than 12 may see a 12A film in a cinema unless accompanied by an adult.
Do they ID you at Vue cinema?
To avoid disappointment, you must set up your digital ID before visiting Vue.
No one younger than 15 can go and see a 15 rated film in the cinema. No one younger than 15 may rent or buy a 15 rated video, DVD or download.
No one younger than 15 may see a 15 film in a cinema. No one younger than 18 may see an 18 film in a cinema.

Use your digital ID at the cinema
Simply show your 'Age card' when you're at the cinema, and they'll check the hologram and the QR code to prove it's valid.
- Photo-card driver's licence (full or provisional)
- Identification card (national/state/province identity card)
- Government-issued local language ID (not in roman characters and accepted only if issued by the country in which you are testing)
- Non-US Military ID.
Yes! As long as you have a TOTUM card or valid university-issued ID, you can claim the discount. If you're not yet at university and are aged between 15 17 years old, you can also enjoy the student price! Proof of age may be requested.
At the biggest cinema chains, like Cineworld, Odeon, Vue and Empire, vaping is not allowed.
We always follow national rules about film ratings, and if you're lucky enough to be looking younger than the film's rating, we'll have to ask to see some ID. Another reason you could be asked for ID is to make sure you're getting the right ticket for your film. Our ticket types can be found here.
Vue gave a similar response, writing: "You sure are! You're welcome to bring your own cold food and non-alcoholic drinks into any of our venues. I hope this helps."
