Ticket Purchasing Policy

The purchase of tickets via the website, the telephone booking line or on site for movie performances infers that, you, the Customer, accept and agree to the following Terms and Conditions. Please consult the Ticket Purchasing Policy regularly as it can be updated and amended from time to time without notice.

Purchasing Tickets Remotely

Cinema tickets for Movies @ are sold by our online booking system at www.movies-at.ie  or via our telephone booking line 1520 880 333 (“Remote Booking Purchases”).  Such Remote Booking Purchases can be made using credit/debit cards.

A booking fee will apply to Remote Booking Purchases. This is a non-refundable surcharge which is levied for the additional service of allowing preferred seat selection in advance of a performance and the processing of debit/credit card transactions. Details of the booking fee can be found here

The online booking system requires the Customer to provide an email address and to input the cardholder’s name, card type,  card number, card expiry date and the security code on the back of the card (CVV or similar) in order to make payment.

The telephone booking system requires the Customer to input the cardholder’s card number, card expiry date and the security code on the back of the card (CVV or similar) in order to make payment for tickets.

The Customer should ensure all details of the booking are correct before confirming the purchase of their tickets.  Movies@ do not accept any responsibility for bookings that are incorrect due to error on the part of the Customer (for example incorrect time, date, number of tickets or ticket type [adult/student/senior/child] etc).

 If the Customer experiences problems with the online booking process, please call the phone number of the cinema specified on the booking page during normal working hours or email info@movies-at.ie outside of normal working hours.

Once the booking has been processed by the online system, the Customer will receive a confirmation email to the email address they have supplied with all the relevant details of their booking.

Customers who have purchased their tickets via the telephone booking system will be given a booking reference number but do not receive a confirmation email. The booking reference number should be retained by the Customer for any queries regarding the purchase or in the event that a refund needs to be obtained.

Movies@ is not responsible for a Customer selecting the wrong ticket type; ie time, date or ticket type (adult/student/senior/child etc). Customers found to be in possession of invalid tickets will be directed to a retail till where a member of the management team will refund their booking allowing them to purchase the correct tickets. The same seat selection cannot be guaranteed. Booking fees will not be refunded. Please note that refunded transactions will take 3-5 working days to return to a Customer’s account.

Gift Cards may be used to book tickets using the Remote Booking Process.  However it is not possible to use promotional vouchers to book tickets using the Remote Booking Process.

Movies @ will endeavour to ensure that the Customer is provided with the seat that was selected at the time of booking.  However, Movies @ cannot guarantee the seating allocation and reserve the right to make changes if necessary.

Collecting Tickets Purchased Remotely

Tickets can only be collected in the relevant cinema lobby area.  To collect tickets purchased by the Remote Booking Process the Customer must present and use the credit/debit card that was used to purchase the tickets. The Customer should insert the card into one of the automatic ticket collection points or they can present the card to a cinema representative at any till point.

Tickets must be collected within the first 30 minutes of the performance start time.  Tickets will not be issued after this time has elapsed.

Tickets Purchased Onsite

Tickets can be purchased onsite from a till point in the lobby area. Payment can be made either by cash or using a debit/credit card.

Tickets will be issued to the Customer at the time of purchase.  Please retain these tickets for presentation to the cinema staff for entry (and re-entry if required) to the relevant screen at the show time selected.

The Customer should ensure all details of the booking are correct before confirming purchase of their tickets.  Movies@ do not accept any responsibility for bookings that are incorrect due to error on the part of the Customer (for example incorrect time, date, number of tickets or ticket type [adult/student/senior/child] etc).

Promotional vouchers or Movies @ gift cards may be used to purchase tickets onsite at any retail till.

Movies @ will endeavour to ensure that the Customer is provided with the seat that was selected at the time of booking.  However, Movies @ cannot guarantee the seating allocation and reserve the right to make changes if necessary.



Refunds will be permitted only in exceptional circumstances and at the sole discretion of the Manager on duty.  Refunds can be processed no later than 2 hours before commencement of the relevant screening except where:

·         An exchange of tickets can be facilitated

·         An incorrect ticket type has been purchased

In such cases the Manager on duty will ensure that the correct tickets are issued and the correct payment received.


Where a customer with a disability is accompanied by a carer providing assistance to that customer, the carer will be offered a complimentary ticket provided that:

·       The customer with the disability is purchasing an appropriate full price ticket

·       The customer and the carer are attending the same film, in the same auditorium, at the same time and the carer remains with the customer for the duration of the film.

·       The carer can provide official Photographic ID in relation to their employment as a carer or alternatively an official carer card accompanied by photo ID e.g. Driving Licence

A complimentary ticket is provided on the assumption that the carer accompanying the customer is able to provide appropriate assistance.

For this reason the presumption will be that the person accompanying the cardholder will be aged 18 years or over.

In all cases, one full price ticket must be bought for each complimentary ticket allowed.


Please note that complimentary tickets will not be available during the first 2 weeks of the release of a movie.   Movies @ presents a Special Needs Friendly Screening each Tuesday and Wednesday morning at which this restriction is lifted.  For our Special Needs Friendly Screenings please follow this link .
