Film classification

V
Films for the audience of all ages. NOTE for the audience of all ages. This age restriction index generally refers to family films but it is not recommended to take babies and children under the age of 4 as the sound and image effects can scare the young audience. Meaning: Informative, recommended
N-7
Films for the audience over 7 years of age. NOTE for the audience over 7 years of age. This age restriction index also often refers to family films but certain cinematic sounds, images, special cinematic effects and scenes of violence can scare the audience under the age of 7. According to the amendment of Article 14 of the Law on Cinema No. IX-752 of the Republic of Lithuania, the audience under the age of 7 is admitted to the films marked with this index only together with the adults. NOTE! Unless the child is accompanied by the adult, the staff of the Cinema Center reserves the right to ask the person to show an ID document as a proof of age at the ticket office and the entrance. Tickets are not sold for the films marked with this index to the children under 7 years of age without adults. Also, they are not admitted to the cinema and money for illegally purchased tickets (e.g. by other adults) is non-refundable. Meaning: Restricted, prohibited. An identity document is required as a proof of age.

EXTRA
“Film indexes according to the age of the audience are regulated by the Law on Cinema of the Republic of Lithuania (Official Gazette, 2002, No. 31-1107; 2012, No. 6-192). Films are indexed by the Lithuanian Film Center on the proposal of the Film Indexing Commission. The Film Center does not index films. However, it is directly responsible for the violations in this respect. In case of doubts that the person purchasing tickets is younger than required by the regulated film index, we will ask to show us an ID document at the ticket office and the entrance to prove the age, and will refuse selling a ticket and/or admission to the cinema. Below is the reference to the amendment of the Law on Cinema regarding the age restrictions: http://www3.lrs.lt/pls/inter2/dokpaieska.showdoc_l?p_id=470570 When purchasing tickets to the films marked with age restriction indices, such as 7+, 13+, 16+ and 18+, a proof of identity and age must be provided at the request of a cashier or a controller. The following documents can be provided: a student certificate, a passport, an ID card, and a driving license (a document must contain a photograph and specify the date of birth of a person).
