Most of our screenings use a standard BD or DVD and the classifications shown here are for that medium. Where a BD or DVD ("Video") certification is not available, the film's original theatrical rating is used. Click the IMDb and BBFC logos for more information about each film. The BBFC links are for the original theatrical releases because these usually have more detailed information about content. Timings are for the medium in use. DVD versions are, for technical reasons, always slightly shorter than the BD and theatrical versions.
