Confirmation of my ticket purchase has not been emailed to me. What should I do?

If you saw a confirmation page containing your booking details after your ticket purchased was processed, you can still collect your tickets from the ticket box (where available use the express queue). For security reasons, the credit card holder will need to present the card used for the booking.

If you did not see a confirmation page or if you are unsure, please contact our friendly Customer Service team on 1300 555 400 or email contactus@village-cinemas.com. Please do not attempt to process the booking again.

I have been charged more than once for my online booking. How do I get a refund?

If the session time has not passed, take your credit card to the ticket box before your movie and ask to speak to the manager on duty who will be able to arrange a refund. Alternatively, email contactus@village-cinemas.com with the cinema location, movie title, session time and your best contact phone number.

I have booked my tickets online. Do I still need to go to the ticket box?

If you have your ticket confirmation email containing the QR code, you can skip the queue and go straight to the cinema.

Why am I charged a booking fee online?

As with many other booking services, we charge a booking fee. Booking online means that you can skip the queue and go straight to the cinema. Booking fees cover the costs associated with administration, development and maintenance required on the software. Booking fees do not apply when you buy tickets at the ticket box.

What does No Free Tickets (NFT) mean?

No Free Tickets or NFT is a restriction placed by film distribution companies on some newly released movies. Until this restriction is lifted, no complimentary or free passes can be used for these films. The NFT restriction does not apply to pre-paid vouchers such as Village Cinemas Screen Savers. Please check the conditions on the back of your voucher.
