'Fifty Shades' moviegoers required to bring NSO birth certificate?

There have been talks that people who would like to watch Fifty Shades of Grey will be required to bring an NSO-certified birth certificate.

Although the erotic film was approved without cuts, the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) gave it an R-18 rating, which means only those 18 years old and above will be allowed.

Some Facebook users said individuals who look younger than the specified minimum age will be asked to provide proof that he or she is no longer a minor such as a birth certificate duly certified by the National Statistics Office.

There was no announcement coming from authorities and even from cinema operators, but we have received reliable information that the ticket booth staff may require an ID indicating the person's date of birth, on a case to case basis.
