As we always take the safety and security of our guests very seriously, we would need to carefully consider the hazard that the items may cause if there was a need to evacuate the cinema. If you are not able to take the items into the auditoria then, in certain cinemas, we may be able to store the items for you but this would be at your risk.

Yes this is the full film. An advanced screening is simply a unique opportunity to see the film before anyone else!

For their safety, we require that any children under 15 years of age are accompanied by over 18s to any showing starting on or after 11:30pm. 

At certain locations, we have to enforce a more stringent "Over 18s" only policy - to check if this applies, please check the Cinema Information section of your local ODEON's homepage.

All of our cinemas have a hearing loop system at our Box Office and Retail areas and an infra-red system in each screen. Please select your local Cinema and click on the 'Guide to your cinema' section.

Normally adverts and trailers last for approximately 25-30 minutes which should be added on to the total running time of the film.

Once your purchase has been confirmed, your seats are held for you until the start of the performance time as published, and will not be sold to another guest. Therefore, payment is required for all confirmed bookings, irrespective of whether the tickets are collected or not. Please note that on occasion entry will be delayed for late arrivals in order to minimise distractions to the already seated audience.

An audio described performance is a standard screening ideal for visually impaired people. It works by playing a recorded narration, explaining what's happening on screen - during gaps in the dialogue - through personal headphones. The normal film soundtrack comes through the cinemas surround sound speakers in the usual way, so Audio description is undetectable to anyone else in the auditorium not using a headset. Headsets are available on request from the Cinema box office

We sometimes have to wait until the film distribution companies fully confirm details about a film before we can put tickets on sale. As soon as we know the films and times they will be displayed on the website - usually this results in the tickets for next week appearing on the website on Tuesday evening or Wednesday afternoon. 

Sometimes, due to public demand, tickets can go on sale a few weeks before their release date after agreement with the film distributors. To ensure you are informed about advance sales of key films, you can register with ODEON to receive promotional and weekly film times emails by clicking here.

Whenever a film is released with captions for the hard of hearing we do try to schedule it at our cinemas, however due to the limited number of copies available we are not able to show it at all our cinemas (especially if it the captioned version has already been shown at a nearby cinema). Captioned for hard of hearing and Audio Described performances are listed separately so you can choose these specific performances.

In addition, the "Your Local Cinema" website provides full listings of captioned performances at ODEON and other cinemas. Please click here to go to the Your Local Cinema website (opens in a new window).

We try to ensure we have the most up to date trailers on the website. If you experience any problems with viewing the trailers please let us know by using the 'Contact Us' link located on this page.

In certain situations we may not be able to obtain a copy of the film you wish to see - especially if the film has a limited release.

To find out if the film is showing in a nearby ODEON, simply select the film using the "Whats On" option shown at the top of every page and you will be able to see which ODEON Cinemas are showing the film. Film selections are changed weekly at each cinema.

D-BOX is available to all ages, where children under the age of 12 should be accompanied by an adult. Please refer to the D-BOX warning for specific detail on guest who should not use D-BOX seating.

D-BOX is a multi-sensorial revolution in cinema-going. Action and sound become motion.

Live the action with D-Box's patented Motion CodeTM technology - motion effects specifically programmed for the film are sent to your seat, creating an unmatched realistic immersive experience. Only the D-Box Motion System offers motion effects and intelligent vibrations perfectly synchronised with the action onscreen. The D-Box Motion system generates three types of movements - pitch, roll and heave - that move you forwards and backwards, from side to side and up and down. All of this combines to create the most amazing, all-encompassing cinema experience.

You can find out about the various certificates by clicking on the Certificate logo next to any film or go to the British Board of Film Classification website (opens in a new window).

ODEON can only allow admission to films in accordance with the certificate the film has been granted by the British Board of Film Classification and we are required to check the age of anyone who looks (or we believe may be) underage. If you look younger than the age required for a film you may be asked to provide some ID. We are unable to simply take someones word on their age or the age of someone in their party.

This ID must include a photo and ideally should be one of the following: Passport, Photo Driving Licence, Student Card/School Pass with Photo and DOB, ValidateUK card, or age related scheme (such as the UK PASS-Scheme card, Prove-it Portman Card or Citizen Card).

There is no additional cost for seeing the performance specifically in HFR, other than the usual upgrade costs which apply for 3D, IMAX and ISENSE performances.

‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ will be released on 13th December in multiple formats including 3D, IMAX, IMAX 3D, ISENSE and HFR 3D, HFR IMAX 3D, HFR ISENSE and 2D. 

2D performances of the ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ will be programmed and available to book nearer the time of the films release date.

To book tickets to see ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ in non-HFR format, please select this link.

Frame rates are the number of images (frames) displayed by a projector in one second. 24 frames per second (fps) is the current standard in cinemas worldwide. HFR 3D productions of 48 fps record and play visuals at twice the current rate.

HFR 3D has been developed as digital technology.

HFR 3D represents a technological advancement in the motion picture experience providing another option for cinema guests. Peter Jackson is pushing the boundaries of new filmmaking technologies on  ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ and shot the film on HFR 3D, so it is being released in that format in addition to traditional formats.

Yes. The HFR version of ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ will be available in 3D only.

We would love to be able to show this format in every cinema, but unfortunately we do not receive enough HFR copies of the film to play in every cinema. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.
