Classification ratings

Classification Ratings

Classifications help you decide which films to choose. Classifications tell you about the impact of the content and the most suitable audience for a film.

What do the ratings mean?

General (G)

G is an advisory classification

The content is very mild in impact

The G classification is suitable for everyone. G films may contain classifiable elements such as language and themes that are very mild in impact.

Parental Guidance (PG)

PG is an advisory classification

The content is mild in impact

The impact of PG (Parental Guidance) classified films should be no higher than mild, but they may contain content that children find confusing or upsetting and may require the guidance of parents, teachers or guardians. For example, they may contain classifiable elements such as language and themes that are mild in impact.

PG-rated content is not recommended for viewing by people under the age of 15 without guidance from parents, teachers or guardians.

Mature (M)

M is an advisory classification

The content is moderate in impact

Films classified M (Mature) contain content of a moderate impact. M-rated films are not recommended for children under the age of 15. They include portrayals of elements such as violence and themes that require a mature outlook.

However, children under the age of 15 may legally access this material as the classification rating is an advisory category.

Parents, teachers and guardians may need to find out more about the specific content before deciding whether the material is suitable for children in their care.

Mature Accompanied (MA 15+)

MA 15+ is a legally restricted classification

The content is strong in impact
MA 15+ rated material contains strong content and is legally restricted to people over the age of 15. It contains elements such as sex scenes and drug use that could have a strong impact on the viewer.

A person may be asked to show proof of their age before purchasing or viewing an MA 15+ film or computer game.

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. The parent or adult guardian must also purchase the ticket for the child. The guardian must be over the age of 18 and exercising parental control over the child.

Restricted (R 18+)

R 18+ is a legally restricted classification

The content is high in impact
R 18+ material is restricted to adults as it contains content that is considered high in impact for viewers. This includes content that may be offensive to sections of the adult community. A person may be asked for proof of their age before purchasing, hiring or viewing R 18+ films and computer games at a retail store or cinema.

Check the Classification (CTC)

‘Check the Classification’ (CTC) message for unclassified films
The film has been assessed and approved for advertising. You should check the classification closer to the release date.

 


Proof of age

Cinemas may verify a person’s age before they provide access to an MA 15+ or R 18+ film.

Proof of age (preferably in the form of photo identification) may be requested of the person claiming to be 15 or 18, or of the parent or guardian.

When can cinemas refuse entry to an MA 15+ or R 18+ film?

Cinemas are required to abide by the MA 15+ and R 18+ age restrictions. This means refusing entry to an MA 15+ film to any person who reasonably appears to be under 15 and who is not accompanied by his or her parent or guardian.

Entry to an R 18+ film in a cinema can be refused to any person who reasonably appears to be under 18.

This also applies to tickets already purchased online.

Who qualifies as a “guardian” for a person under 15?

The “guardian” must be an adult exercising “parental control” over the person under 15 years of age. The guardian needs to be 18 years or older.

An older sibling or friend would not generally satisfy this requirement, whereas a grandparent, aunt or uncle may.

History

The Euroa Civic Centre Hall previously acted as a cinema (The Euroa Civic Theatre), until it ceased operation in the early 1980s. Given the relatively limited entertainment opportunities, particularly for children and youth within Euroa and the wider district, the idea of restoring the Euroa Civic Theatre to its former glory was born.

Council received State Government funding from the Regional Arts Infrastructure Allocation – Regional Cinemas Program to upgrade the hall. The total cost of the project was approximately $80,000 which was co-funded by Council and the government on a dollar-for-dollar basis. After a lot of hard work by community members and Council staff, the Euroa Community Cinema was opened 14 November 2003.

Initially films were shown once every month, however screenings increased after sufficient demand. The cinema transitioned to a digital format in January 2014 and screens movies Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons, with additional screenings throughout the year.
