Can You Vape in the Cinema?

In Guides

It is well known amongst adult nicotine users that vaping is generally considered on par with smoking.

There’s no national law in Ireland preventing the use of vapes in enclosed public places although, most premises proprietors have imposed rules about vaping in their areas of authority.

This applies to public transport systems, airports, eateries, bars, stadiums, entertainment spots and cinemas, many of which have rigid vaping rules.

 

Is it illegal to vape in the cinema?

No Irish laws exist regarding the use of e-cigarettes or other vaping devices in cinemas. This makes the policies concerning them the responsibility of singular business proprietors or the management of larger corporate chains. Nothing can be assumed when it comes to electronic cigarettes.

 

The ban on vaping in cinemas

Cinema chains of great renown (e.g. Odeon, Showcase, Vue, etc.) have established policies concerning vaping. It is prohibited in any part of the building, including the theatre, bathrooms and the foyer. Therefore, vaping is banned in any cinema, even if signs or written policies do not explicitly indicate it. Smaller, independent cinemas may take a more accommodating stance, so it would be wise to enquire with the management – they may be more lenient.

 

Why is vaping at the cinema a problem?

For businesses, paying attention to and considering what their customers say is beneficial. Some moviegoers have voiced their grievances about the vapour from e-cigarettes blocking their view and the smell of e-liquid flavours. Banning vapes is a more straightforward solution than dealing with such complaints from cinema owners.
