Some cinemas will control kids for their ages, some will not. You won't know for sure until you try to enter. It is really hit or miss. In addition, some ticket takers will ask the parents if the kids are old enough and some will actually check. There is no hard and fast rule about the enforcement.
Actually it's pretty easy - you can just ask about a specific cinema here and there's a good chance someone can tell you.

You could also phone them and ask, which is much better than disappointing your kid at the door of the auditorium.

Or just wait until the movie is on sale in DVD bargain racks.

It wasn't that funny the first time you said it, it didn't get any better second time around.

The link to the Cineman site, waaaaaaaaaaaay above, also showed that the literary classic Despicable Me 3 had the age restrictions set at 4 years in St Gallen, 6 years in Bern and 8 years in Dietlikon.
Kanton Zürich still has its own rules, the new law is being challenged so not effective yet.

The commision sets the suitable age, which may (but need not) be lowered by two years if accompanied by a grownup.
