  • expand_moreDo I require ID to purchase a ticket or watch a movie in the cinema?
    Yes in some cases. ID may be required for 12A, 15A, 16 & 18 certificate films. A valid Third Level Student ID is required when purchasing student tickets. In the event of a dispute, the cinema manager's decision is final.
  • expand_moreWhy can't I take my 13 year old child into a 16 rated film even if they are accompanied by me?
    The Irish Film Censor's Office is the body that gives ratings to all films that are shown in Ireland. For a 16 certified movie the rating is very clear, "No-one younger than 16 may see a '16' film in a cinema". In this case it is not a parental decision to make, and by law, Cinemas must do as much as possible to ensure that children do not gain entry to films which are not suitable for them as set out in the ratings guidelines. Identification as proof of age may be required. More information is available from www.ifco.ie.

The Films We Show

  • expand_moreWhy can't I find out what times the films will be showing at Century Cinemas next month?
    Like most cinemas, we can only work on our film programme one week at a time and just under a week in advance. There are many reasons for this, but the main reason is that each week we have to analyse the previous weekend's box office and look at how each of the films have performed. This is so we can bring together a programme, which has the most popular films showing at the most convenient times for the benefit of our audiences. Normally by the Tuesday evening of each week you can start booking your tickets for the forthcoming weekend's new releases. In the case of 'big event movies' we try to have the times programmed for sale a few weeks in advance, where possible.
  • expand_moreWhy are some films showing in other Irish cinemas but are not showing at Century Cinemas?
    Sometimes the film distributors simply do not have enough copies of their film to cover all the cinemas in Ireland. Unfortunately, as a result, audiences occasionally have to wait several weeks until enough copies become available.
  • expand_moreWhy do some of the official studio websites advertise a different or an earlier release date for some of the films on centurycinemas.ie?
    Most of the film websites are constructed for the American market, so they often show the American release dates for their films. Sometimes these sites will have an option to click on 'international sites', however the only difference between the American and International sites will be the release date. Frequently when a film approaches its Irish release date, the film distributors will create an Irish website for the film - but this is not always the case. At centurycinemas.ie we will always endeavour to bring you the most up to date information on Coming Soon and New Releases.
  • expand_moreDo you show Independent / Bollywood / Classic Movies?
    At Century Cinemas we have a wide variety of content available. As part of our Events Cinema programme we show Bollywood and Polish Language films regularly, we also have our Film Club which features a variety of limited release films. Our Events Cinema programme also includes live and pre-recorded Operas, Ballet, Concerts and Musical Theatre from all around the world. Keep an eye on our Events Cinema page for more information on when these will be showing.

  • expand_moreCan I bring a baby into a film, do I have to pay for them? Are unaccompanied children admitted to the Cinema?
    For a baby in your arms, under the age of two there is no charge, however if your child needs to take up a seat then you will be asked to pay a child's price. We try to accommodate babies as best we can, age restrictions apply.
