Noise and disruptive behaviour

The Odyssey exists with the purpose of delivering you with a great cinema-going experience.

We respectfully ask that you consider the results of you and your guest’s behaviours toward our staff and other paying members of the audience.

It is not acceptable to make unreasonable noise nor display antisocial behaviour; this includes the use of phones and tablets that distract from the viewing pleasure of everyone else.

We ask that you leave the auditorium if you have no choice but to check these devices.

Disruptive and antisocial behaviour will be determined at the sole discretion of The Odyssey Cinema Manager on duty.

In the event of a dispute, the cinema manager’s decision is final.

Please respect that what you may think is an acceptable level of noise is not necessarily shared by those around you.


The Odyssey allows access to the cinema to all members of the community.

We often welcome visitors to the building with a disability, including patrons who may make involuntary noises.

The Odyssey will not ask a disabled patron making an involuntary noise to leave a performance however we have a duty of care to understand where the noise is coming from, why the noise is being made, and what we may be able to do to assist the person making the noise. All staff must adhere to this policy.


No buggies can be taken into the auditorium.

We recommend you use a bassinet or carry your baby in a sling.

If your baby causes a disturbance during the film we kindly ask you to take them up to the foyer until they are settled.

If your baby is unable to settle and you must leave the showing we are not able to offer a refund.
