Certification of Films - Hyde Park Picture House pdf icon PDF 127 KB

To receive and consider the attached report of the Chief Officer, Elections and Regulatory


Additional documents:


The report of the Chief Officer, Election and Regulatory presented an application for the certification of films to be shown at the Hyde Park Picture House on the 5th and 16th February 2019.


The Licensing Officer presented the report and informed the Sub-Committee that the application had been received as the films had not been classified by the BBFC. The report outlined a brief synopsis of the films to be shown and the proposed classifications.


Wendy Cook of the Hyde Park Picture House gave the Sub-Committee a summary of the films to be shown. The following was highlighted: 

·  Hale County This Morning, This Evening – This film addressed adult themes such as poverty and race, as well as contemporary challenges facing America but did not contain scenes of sexual violence or other violence, and did not use strong language. It was recommended that it be granted a PG certification.

·  The Final Girls Present: We Are the Weirdos 2 – This film had scenes that contained bloody violence and psychological horror, with an undertone of feminist themes, bringing women to the fore. It was reported that even though this film sat on the borderline of the Category 15 classification, a Category 18 classification would be appropriate. The Sub-Committee were informed that late night screening would commence from 22:30.


The Licensing Sub-Committee carefully considered the application, the report and the representations made at the hearing.


RESOLVED- To approve the application as applied for.
