To consider and award the appropriate film classification for Andre Rieu's 2014 Maastricht concert

Additional documents:


The Land Charges and Licensing Officer submitted a report which sought consideration on the appropriate film classification for Andre Rieu’s 2014 Maastricht Concert.


The Licensing Authority had received a request from Cinema Live to consider the certification of a film scheduled to be shown at the Plaza Cinema in Workington. The cinema wanted to encore the cinema broadcast of Andre Rieu's 2014 Maastricht Concert on 13th August. However, as this was a broadcast via satellite, the BBFC rating only lasts from 7 days of the live screening, which took place on the 19th July, meaning that their encore date of 13th August was outside of this certification. In line with the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) certification was requested to enable the one-off screening to go ahead.  The BBFC certification was 12A.




The broadcast was awarded the certification;


Suitable for all audiences.
