Break and enter?

Ahhh, no. If the local constabulary were pushed to apply the law to a couple of fools caught sneaking into a cinema, then the charge would be "Trespass" not "Break and Enter".

Break and Enter is forced entry to a property. Simply opening an unlocked door and walking in is not construed "Break and Enter", especially if it is in the context of sneaking into a cinema to try and watch a movie free.

In reality, police would baulk at even charging for any offence, rather issuing a caution. As my brother in law and cousin have often told me, the paperwork for such a trivial offence is often not worth the time and effort, drawing them away from the real work of policing.
