  • SKIP the QUEUE!

    Buy your ticket online to skip any waiting queue on the left aisle.


    You’ll saunter down to the Box Office on the right aisle where our staff will scan your bar/QRcode, or enter your booking number, and you go straight in!

    No waiting around. So you can enjoy the  sunset sooner, a drink or some food, and of course reserve your seat for the movie.

    Don’t wait, book online now (same price as Box Office ticket).
