Can I take a baby to the cinema?

We strongly discourage babies in arms to the cinema (except our special baby screenings) as the loudness of most films is not a good environment for them. We will allow for U and PG films starting before 7pm.

However we do run BIG SCREAM screenings which is parent and baby screenings.

What do the certificates mean?

U
The U symbol stands for Universal. A U film should be suitable for audiences aged four years and over. However, it is impossible to predict what might upset a particular child, especially at this lower end of the category range.

PG (Parental Guidance)
PG stands for Parental Guidance. This means a film is suitable for general viewing, but some scenes may be unsuitable for younger children. A PG film should not disturb a child aged around eight or older. Parents should consider whether the content might upset younger or more sensitive children.

12A
12A means that anyone aged 12 or over can go and see the film unaccompanied. The A stands for 'accompanied' and 'advisory'. Children younger than 12 may see the film if they are accompanied by an adult (eg someone over the age of 18), who must watch the film with them.

15
No-one under 15 is allowed to see a 15 film at the cinema or buy/rent a '15' rated DVD.  15 rated works are not suitable for children under 15 years of age.

18
Films rated 18 are for adults. No-one under 18 is allowed to see an 18 film at the cinema or buy/rent an 18 rated DVD. No 18 rated works are suitable for children.

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.

How long are ads and trailers before a film?

It depends on the film. As a rule we tend to have ads and trailers running between 15 and 20 minutes prior to film start. Previews often have no advertisements so we strongly suggest you are in your seats prior to the advertised programme start time so you do not miss anything.

When do you advertise film times on your website?

Normally we will download our film schedule on the Tuesday preceeding the Friday of release. On big films we may do this earlier as demand will be higher.

What does FLS or Free List Suspended Mean?

When you see the term 'Free List Suspended' beside a particular Movie, this means that some complimentary Tickets cannot be used by a customer to see that particular film. In most cases this applies to the first two weeks after a film's release date. This is a set condition of the film distributors, Universal Pictures, Sony, 20th Century Fox etc... It applies to all cinemas in the UK.

Can a family ticket be split between 2 different movies?

Unfortunately a family ticket can only be used for 1 movie and cannot be split between different movies.

Can you use an electronic cigarette in one of our screens while watching a movie?

Unfortunately electronic cigarettes are not allowed to be used in the screens here at Odyssey Cinemas.

Can you use the Meercat Movies 2 for 1 offer in conjunction with Tuesday Madness?

Unfortunately the Meercat Movies cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers. As Tuesday Madness is an offer this means that it cannot be used. However you can use the 2 for 1 ticket offer on full price tickets on a Tuesday.
