At the Community Cinema at Gavinton we hope to show movies that will attract a variety of audiences. Movies in the forthcoming programme will be described by the classification given when approved for public viewing. This explanation of the meaning of the classifications should help you decide if a film is likely to suit your taste.


Movie Classifications for Public Viewings

UUniversal – A U film should be suitable for audiences aged 4 years and over.
PGParental Guidance – This means a film is suitable for general viewing, but some scenes may be unsuitable for young children. A PG film should not unsettle a child aged around 8 or older. Parents should consider whether the content may upset younger, or more sensitive, children.
RRestricted, children under 17 require accompanying parent or adult guardian.
12AFilms classified 12A 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. (Note: 12A refers to public screenings. For DVD or video, this is called just 12.
15No-one under 15 is allowed to see a 15 film at the cinema or buy/rent a 15 rated video. 15 rated works are not suitable for children under 15 years of age.
