    After Booking Tickets:

    Will my movie tickets be delivered after my booking is completed?
    Your tickets are confirmed and paid for, and need to be collected from the box office counter at the venue. Please note that you will be required to show the Credit/Debit card used while transacting along with the confirmation E-mail/SMS and sign on the acknowledgement slip while collecting the tickets.

    Do I need to carry my Credit/ Debit card when I collect my tickets?
    Yes. It is necessary to carry the Credit/ Debit card used for booking when you pick the tickets from the venue. This is to ensure that the person booking the ticket is the bonafide owner of the card.

    I have booked tickets on my credit card for my friends/family, but I cannot attend the show personally. How do I ensure that they will be issued tickets at the cinema without my card?
    In a rare case scenario, where the cardholder is absent during the collection of tickets, the person collecting the tickets needs to show the photocopy of the front and reverse side of your card which should be signed by the cardholder along with the confirmation mail/sms. We recommend you scratch off the CVV number for security reasons. Enjoy the show!

    How much time before the show do I have to collect my tickets?
    Since the ticket is already paid for, it is available for collection at the box office at any time before the show. However, we recommend collecting the ticket 20-30 minutes earlier in case of a last minute queue at the box office.

    My booking number is 9*****6 Can you check and revert if my booking is confirmed?
    If you are a registered user, please login with your username and password. Then check the Booking History section, which will show a list of all bookings done by you. If the booking details show up in this section, then your booking has been successful. Alternately, please contact our support team to chat with us or email us.

    I accidentally booked my tickets for today instead of tomorrow, can you change the tickets?
    Tickets once booked are deemed sold. Hence it is not possible to cancel, replace or refund a confirmed booking.

    Can I change my seat numbers?
    No. It is not possible to change the seat numbers of a ticket once booked

    Can I change the show time that I have booked for?
    Once a ticket is booked, it is deemed as sold and there is no privilege to revise the booking details.

    Can we cancel or replace our tickets?
    As per cinema policy, once a ticket has been paid for, it is deemed sold. It cannot be replaced or cancelled.

  • Payment

    What are the modes of payment available to book tickets?
    We have the below modes of payment available for purchasing tickets:

    1. Credit Card 2. Debit Card

    We will be adding new payment options in the near future.

    When I enter my credit card information, the website asks for a CVV code. What is the CVV code?
    The CVV is a 3 or 4 digit code embossed or imprinted on the reverse side of Visa and MasterCard credit cards. This is an extra security measure to ensure that you have access or physical possession of the credit card itself in order to use the CVV code.

    1. For Visa and MasterCard credit cards, the CVV is a 3 digit number embossed or imprinted on the reverse side of the card.
    2. For American Express cards, the CVV is the 4 digit number on the front right hand side of the card above the card number.

    My booking has been rejected, but my credit card has been charged? What do I do?
    This is a very rare situation, and can occur in case of a network fluctuation at the venue at the time of confirming the transaction. In this case, a reverse request for the charge on your card will be sent by us the same day to the bank.

    The refund has still not been credited in my credit card account
    As per our company policy, we send a reverse request to the bank by the end of the day. Depending on each bank's policy, it can sometimes take up to 15 working days for the reversal to take effect.

    In spite of several reminders, the refund is still not reflecting on my card.
    As per our company's policy, a reversal request is sent to the bank by the end of the day from our end. It can take up to 10 working days for the reversal, depending upon the card issuing bank for the amount to reflect in your account. In a rare case, if it has been longer than 10 days, please feel free to chat with us or email us and we will take this up on priority with the bank to ensure the refund is done immediately.
