Age check

When buying tickets for films marked with the audience age of N-7, N-13, N-16 and N-18, it is necessary to present a document confirming the identity (age) of the viewer upon request from the cashier or at the entrance to the hall.

The following documents can be submitted: school certificate, student card, passport, identity card, driver's license (the most important thing is that the document contains the viewer's photo and date of birth).

This rule also applies to online purchases. If acquired e. a ticket to movies with the above-mentioned censors, but refusing to present an identity document at the entrance, the cinema employee has the right to refuse to let the viewer into the movie. Money for illegally acquired tickets is not refunded.

Meanings and Notes of Age Censors for Motion Picture Audiences
V – For viewers of all ages
This audience age censor mark usually marks family films, but we recommend not to bring young viewers (0-4 years old) to films marked this way, because the sound of the film and the images of the film may frighten them.
For viewers from 7 years old
Family-friendly movies are often labeled with this age rating, but due to certain sounds, visuals, special effects, and violence in the movie that may frighten moviegoers under the age of 7. According to the Cinema Law of the Republic of Lithuania no. IX-752 Article 14 Amendment Law, viewers under the age of 7 are admitted to films marked with this index only with accompanying adult persons. If an adult person does not accompany the said spectator, the cinema reserves the right to ask the spectators to present their identity and proof of age at the ticket offices and at the door of the hall. Tickets for films marked with this sign are not sold to persons under the age of 7, unaccompanied by adults, they are not allowed into the hall, and money for illegally purchased tickets (for example, when tickets are purchased by other adults) is not refunded.
For viewers from 13 years old
A motion picture marked with this restrictive age censoring mark may contain thematic elements, ambiguous episodes or more explicit scenes that may have a negative effect on the mental health and moral development of a younger viewer. According to the Cinema Law of the Republic of Lithuania no. IX-752 Article 14 amendment law, viewers between the ages of 7 and 13 are admitted to films marked with this index only when accompanied by an adult. ATTENTION! The cinema reserves the right to ask the audience to present a document confirming their identity and age at the ticket offices and at the door of the hall, if there is no accompanying person of legal age. Unless accompanied by an adult person, tickets for films marked with this sign are not sold to persons under the age of 13, they are not admitted to the hall, and money for illegally purchased tickets (for example, when tickets are purchased by other adults) is not refunded.
For viewers from 16 years old
A motion picture marked with this restrictive age censor mark may contain horror or overtly erotic scenes, other cinematic effects and elements that may have a negative impact on the mental health and moral development of a younger viewer. ATTENTION! The cinema reserves the right to ask the audience to present proof of identity and age at the ticket offices and at the door. Tickets are not sold to persons under the age of 16 for films marked with this sign, they are not admitted to the hall and money for illegally purchased tickets (for example, when tickets are purchased by other adults) is not refunded.
For adult viewers from 18 years old
This age censoring sign, which restricts viewers more strictly, means that the movie may contain even more horror or more explicit erotic scenes, other cinematic effects and elements that are only allowed to be viewed by mature personalities, adult viewers, because the images seen can have a negative impact on the mental health of minors and for moral development. ATTENTION! Theater reserves the right to ask the audience to provide proof of identity and age at the ticket offices and at the door of the hall. Minors are not sold tickets to movies marked with this sign, they are not allowed in the theater and money for illegally purchased tickets (for example, when tickets are purchased online or by other adults) is not refunded.


The cinema law of the Republic of Lithuania regulates the age indices of cinema viewers. The Film Indexing Commission under the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Lithuania determines the audience age index for each film. "Romuva" is not responsible for the index provided by the State authorized institution, but is directly responsible for its violations.

In case of suspicions that the age of the audience buying tickets is lower than the film index, we will ask for proof of identity and age at the box office and at the doors of the theaters, and we will refuse to sell a ticket and/or enter the hall where the film is shown.
