IMPORTANT PRICING INFORMATION
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Moana screenings
Disney, the owners of the Star Wars franchise and the makers of Moana, have introduced new terms for the screening of their films.
Because our tickets are offered at such affordable prices, they do not adequately cover the minimum dollar amount Disney now requires from each individual average ticket sale.
That means our average ticket prices for these Disney films will have to increase.
So, while we will screen Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Moana, ticket prices (other than 3D and Premium) will increase to reflect Disney’s new pricing structure.
These increased ticket prices will apply to all major Disney films at Cineplex (other than in 3D and Premium cinemas) unless a compromise with Disney can be reached.
This is the first time in almost a decade we have had to increase our ticket prices.
Cineplex prides itself on offering affordable tickets. We’re doing all we can to negotiate with Disney so we don’t have to raise prices.
We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused and are continuing to try to negotiate to limit the impact on our loyal customers.
Screenings of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will begin from 15 December.
· Tickets are available at the following prices (unless an agreement can be reached):
Why the price increase?
Because our tickets are offered at the lowest possible prices, they do not adequately cover the minimum dollar amount Disney requests from each individual average ticket sale.
Under the new pricing structure, Disney requires a certain minimum return from every ticket sold. To date we’ve been unable to negotiate terms that allow us to continue to offer tickets at our usual low prices.
Why don’t other cinemas have to increase their prices?
Other cinemas, with higher prices, don’t face this problem as the new costs can simply be absorbed into their existing ticket prices.
Why aren’t the 3D and Premium ticket prices increasing?
Because these tickets are more expensive than our traditional cinema experience, we are able to absorb the additional costs into the current price.
What are you doing to fix this?
The owners of Cineplex are doing everything they can to work with Disney to limit any impact on our loyal customers. Despite our best efforts so far, Disney have been unwilling to change its position.
Will this apply to all Disney films from here on in?
Unfortunately this will apply to all major Disney film releases. This was also why Cineplex only screened Doctor Strange in 3D and in Premium cinemas.
Will this be permanent?
The increased ticket prices will apply to all affected Disney films (other than 3D and Premium) unless a compromise can be reached.
Why are you showing it at all?
Customers are our first priority. We felt compelled to screen the movie, but to also be honest about why tickets would have to be more expensive than usual.
