And what they had to say was very interesting.
First, the officer who wrote to me mentioned the Classification Liaison Scheme (CLS), “a joint State, Territory and Australian Government initiative aimed at improving compliance with classification laws”. In brief, the CLS “is intended to assist retailers and distributors of publications, films (including videos and DVDs) and computer games to comply with their legal obligations under the National Classification Scheme” (for more information, go here).
Second, and most interesting of all, the officer had this to say:
“…each cinema or cinema chain can implement policies with regard to how tickets are sold and proof of age requirements.”
So perhaps a specific government law wasn’t responsible for my frustration that night – but instead, it was perhaps a policy by Event Cinemas?
Next step – I’ll write to Event Cinemas for more information.
Until next time, stay well and take care 🙂
