Once I have booked tickets, how do I collect them?
You can collect your tickets from the box office or from the automatic ticket machines. You must remember to bring the card used during the booking process as this will be required to locate and issue your booking.
Please ensure that you arrive well in advance of your performance in order to pick up your tickets. If you arrive after the performance has started, admission may be refused to avoid disruption to guests already seated in the cinema.
If your booking contains a student ticket, you will need to show your student ID at the box office or ticket gate.
I’ve made a mistake with my booking – what should I do?
Please contact the cinema.
Can I add extra seats to an existing booking?
Please contact the cinema.
I want to book a ticket for a date which isn’t displayed.
Unfortunately we sometimes have to wait until the film distribution companies fully confirm details about a film before we can put tickets on sale. As soon as we know the film and times they will be displayed on the website – usually this results in the tickets for the next week appearing on the website on Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning.
Some films releases go on sale a few weeks before their release date after agreement with the film distributors.
At what age does someone have to pay the adult ticket price?
All guests aged 15 years and over will be charged the adult ticket price. However we offer a student discount to guests in full time education if they hold a valid form of ID such as NUS, NUS Associate, or ISIC (which must be presented at the box office to get the discount).

If I am running late for the film will my seat be held?
At AMC you book a ticket not a seat as we do not operate a reserved seating. AMC does not guarantee your seat or group of seats and therefore we strongly recommend that you arrive at least 30 minutes before you performance starts. AMC will not refund your tickets in the event that you are late in arriving and your group cannot sit together or the available seats are not to your liking. Please note, payment is received irrespective of whether the tickets are collected or not.
When can I use my voucher for free tickets?
We have a large number of different vouchers available, each has different terms and conditions, please check your voucher carefully for validity. Please note, vouchers and coupons cannot be used for online ticket purchases.
Please note, that film distributors often place restrictions on the first three weeks of release on specific films – this is referred to as ‘Free List Suspended’ period. Please refer to your validity and terms and conditions on your passes or voucher as not all are accepted during these periods.
Can you resell tickets?
You must not resell or offer for resale any tickets (whether at a premium or otherwise) or use tickets for advertising or promotions or for any other trade purposes. If you resell or offer for resale any tickets, then they will be invalid.
