A mother has hit out at her local cinema after she was refused entry to watch a 15-rated film because she had her baby with her.
Catherine Buckley, 37, said that Rosie wouldnt know what was going on in the film at the Cineworld screening of A Star is Born in Shrewsbury.
She said that her and her sister bought the tickets and were on their way into one of the screens when a member of staff approached and said were not sure you can take her in, shes not 15.
Staff at the cinema have been supported by their bosses who said that they were acting in accordance with the age restriction law.
However, Mrs Buckley was not happy saying: We thought they were joking but they said no, we actually couldnt take her in.
I understand that there has to be rules and legislation in place but theyre asleep for 18 hours a day.
She can only make out near shapes… she wouldnt know what was going on at all, so is she not allowed to sit at home and watch the news?
Cineworld told the BBC: In line with the British Board of Film Classifications rules, Cineworld is not allowed to let anyone under the age of 15, including babies, into films that are classified as 15 or over.
We are sorry this customer was disappointed but this is a mandatory law that Cineworld staff have to follow. We allow babies into all films that are classified as 12A and under.
Staff at Cineworld Shrewsbury were acting in accordance with the age restriction law.
