Can I buy The Movie Card from my local movie theatre?

A few selected cinemas including all the Majestic cinemas sell The Movie Card.

Can I buy gift cards in denominations other than $25 or $50?

Not at this stage however you can of course buy multiple cards to create whatever value gift you want to give – the sky’s the limit! At The Movie Card we like to do this by adding more cards to the one packet, putting multiple cards in a gift bag or envelope or stacking cards together and tying them up with a ribbon!

Can you really use The Movie Card for both traditional and luxury cinema with the one card?

You sure can! Let the recipient of your gift decide how they want to do their movie night! If the movie theatre you choose offers luxury cinema (or Imax or drive-in for that matter) you can use the one card to pay for these tickets too, up to the value on your card.

Is there room to write a message inside The Movie Card?

There sure is! The packaging of The Movie Card looks like a greeting card. We’ve deliberately left the inside of The Movie Card’s card holder blank so there is enough room to write your own personal message.

Does The Movie Card work if I buy it in say, Perth and send it to my mum in Sydney?

It sure does! We’re a national card! That’s the beauty of The Movie Card – you can let your friends and family go to their local and use The Movie Card their way!
