I love demon slayer its veryyy good! But, to answer the question, I think y'all will be all right! I truly doubt they would Id you for that type of movie, and tbh I think they only id for rated R or 18+.

back in the day when i went cinema they used to sometimes ask us our date of birth and our age when we bought the tickets face to face.

online booking wasn't around then though...

I suspect that online booking is around now the people who take your tickets just before you go in may ask your age if you look young. i think lots of young people will be trying your "trick" and the cinema company will have realised this as they are not stupid.

If it's the odeon then no. I knew someone who went to the odeon to see film and they wouldn't let him in because he couldn't prove that he was 15

your best chance of success would probably be to do the online booking thing like you were planning, and pray they don't ask questions when you hand them your ticket upstairs....

why? because there's a bigger chance of the people selling tickets at the front desk asking questions than the people upstairs. and sometimes the people upstairs arn't even around and you can just walk into any viewing (me and my friend did that a lot and saw quite a few movies for free that way)

If you buy at the front desk you run the potential risk of both the people at the front desk, and the people upstairs asking questions, whereas if you online book, you've only got to talk to the people upstairs.

They will ID you and you might not get a refund when they don't let you in if you bought online. We got refused entrance when I took my daughter, who was the right age, to see a 15. Luckily we searched my phone and I had a photo of her passport.

Isn't this a bit like saying that you're 17 and want to drink alcohol in a pub with 16 year old friends?

me and my friends got refused entry a few times for 15's when we were like 13/14 after buying our tickets..

one time we asked this random man to buy it. he bought it and gave it to us outside. we then tried going in and going upstairs but the staff at the door were suspcious and refunded our tickets..

another time we got severed at the front desk, but then some other guy who recognised us from times before we tried to get in ran over and told the guy not to let us in and refunded our tickets..

all in all though we got in much more times than we got refused.
we never had any trouble with refunds, but then again we bought in person, not online

yeah some people are really ridiculous.

i'm in my 30s and some lady at poundland refused to sell me painkillers.
I point blank asked her if she actually thought i was younger than 16 (the legal age to buy them)

and she looked me dead in the eye with a serious expression on her face and said "I'm not being funny, but some 15 year olds do have facial hair" (making a reference to my facial hair)

In the end another cashier had to come over (who had served me many times before) and tell the woman it was ok to serve me.

Pre covid times for horror films- saw It 2 and us- i was 15 and got asked for id. i dont look 15 so i knew it was coming but with online booking im unsure. if you look old enough then id say go for it but if its a horror( i dont know anime very well) then maybe not coz theyll id you. idk hope this helped. id say chance it coz vue isnt expensive so you dont lose much if u cant get in but im talking from a person who can lose like a tenner so idk how tight with money you are.

My almost-14-year-old son wants to see Demon Slayer at the cinema as well, with his 15 year old sister.
She's got I.D. but obviously he doesn't as he's not old enough for the film.

I just flat out said no. I'm not driving them half an hour to drop them off at the cinema just to risk them not getting in, and wasting my time and money.

We've ordered the dvd instead.
