We’re committed to giving you all the information you need to see a film you’ll love, including which ages it’s suitable for.
We also 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 tickets are for the following ages.
- Child – 12 or under
- Teen – 13 to 17 (except at BFI IMAX)
- Adult – 18 to 59
- Senior – 60 and over
We share your passion for cinema and we’ll do everything we can to help you see your first-choice film. We accept all the following forms of ID:
- Photo driving licence
- Student or school pass (this must show your photo and date of birth)
- VALIDATE UK card
- Older person’s bus pass
- ID from another age-related scheme, such as PASS, Portman Prove It! or International Student Identity Card (ISIC)
We also have a Student ticket for guests who are over 18 and in full-time education. To scoop a saving with this student-loan-friendly discount, just show us valid student ID, such as a National Union of Students (NUS), NUS Associate or ISIC card.
