2. Admission

We want everyone to enjoy their visit to our cinema, so when we issue you with a cinema ticket and provide you with access to our cinema, you will be subject to the following Terms. Please read them carefully before you visit.

  1. We reserve the right to refuse admission to or require to leave the premises (without providing a refund) anyone:
  • where there might be a risk to the safety of others if we do not;
  • who verbally abuses staff;
  • who appears to be intoxicated and/or is behaving in an antisocial way;

  • who brings cameras or other recording equipment into the auditoria;
  • who arrives late to a performance;
  • who engages in any behaviour or activity that is disruptive to or damaging to our business or operation, process or practice.
  1. We are required by law to refuse admission to a film performance to anyone who in the opinion of the manager or box office staff appears to be below the minimum age required by the relevant classification of the British Board of Film Classification or Folkestone & Hythe District Council. We may require anyone to show valid acceptable proof of age before we can admit them; we accept digital ID from Yoti.com as proof of age.
  2. We are required by our licensing conditions to refuse admission to:
  • children aged under 8 years who are unaccompanied by an adult aged 18 years or over, for any film performance;
  • children aged under 12 years who are unaccompanied by an adult aged 18 years or over, for performances starting at or after 7pm;
  • children aged under 18 years who are unaccompanied by an adult aged 18 years or over, for seats in our balcony.
  1. It is an offence to make a recording of a film for sale or to distribute or communicate a recording to the public in the course of business and to the prejudice of the copyright holder. Anyone making such a recording may be arrested and prosecuted.
  2. Please ensure your mobile devices are set to silent and are not used during the main feature.
  3. Please look after your belongings during your visit. We advise against leaving your belongings outside the auditorium during the film. We accept no responsibility for any loss or damage to your belongings, however caused.
  4. Any belongings remaining on the premises after the owner has left will be stored in our lost property for 30 days. Any unclaimed belongings remaining in our lost property after 30 days will be donated or recycled. Customers may collect belongings from our lost property during cinema opening hours, but will be asked to describe the belongings and may also be asked to provide proof of identity before we can release belongings to them. Customers will be required to sign for any belongings they collect.

3. Tickets

  1. Tickets are subject to availability. Unless otherwise stated, tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded.
  2. The purchase of a ticket entitles the bearer access to the performance named at the stated time and date only.
  3. You must not resell or offer for resale any tickets 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.
  4. Ticket purchases are final. By purchasing tickets you accept that we are under no obligation to amend, cancel, or refund those tickets.
  5. It is your responsibility to check your tickets as we are under no obligation to rectify mistakes after purchase of tickets. We are not obliged to replace lost or stolen tickets.
  6. It is your responsibility to ensure you bring your ticket with you to the performance, as we are under no obligation to admit anyone who is not in possession of a ticket for the relevant performance.
  7. We reserve the right to refuse admission to anyone bearing a ticket which requires additional identification or documentation as indicated on our website, where the bearer is unable to produce the required identification or documentation on request. In this situation, we may exchange the ticket for one which does not require any additional identification or documentation. If the replacement ticket is of a higher value, the bearer will be required to pay the difference in price before we can admit them.

4. Online & Telephone Purchases

  1. An online order of tickets or membership made through our website is an offer to purchase. If we accept your offer, we will display a confirmation page on your screen with a reference number, and there will be a contract between you and The Silver Screen Cinema.
  2. A telephone order of tickets or membership made over the telephone is an offer to purchase. If we accept your offer, we will provide you with a reference number during that telephone call, and there will be a contract between you and The Silver Screen Cinema.
  3. When we accept an online or telephone order for tickets, if you provide us with an email address during the order process, we will also send a confirmation email to that email address. This confirmation email acts as your digital ticket(s) and contains a QR code which will entitle the bearer access to the performance named at the stated time and date only. We advise you to check your confirmation email to ensure the QR code is displayed, and to save or print the confirmation email to ensure you are able to show it on arrival.
  4. We are not liable for any failure in the delivery of a confirmation email and/or subsequent refusal of admission due to:
  • an incorrect email address being provided during the order process;
  • your email account settings causing the confirmation email to be put into a spam or junk mail folder;
  • your email account provider blocking the confirmation email from arriving in your email account;
  • your email account or software failing to download or display the QR Code attached to the confirmation email.
  1. Customers are welcome to collect the tickets included in their order from our box office. To collect tickets, you will need to present the reference number in person at our box office. You may also need to confirm the email address associated with the order, or the last four digits of the card number used to purchase the tickets.
  2. Tickets are sold at the price quoted or displayed during the ordering process. All prices and fees include any applicable VAT.
  3. In addition to the price of your tickets, we will levy a non-refundable Advance Booking Fee against each ticket purchased online or over the telephone in consideration for the online and telephone service we offer to our customers, and this will be notified to you during the order process. This fee is levied to cover administrative costs, telephone costs, and other IT-related operational costs resulting from the provision of this service. No part of the Advance Booking Fee relates to the costs of card handling or for the use of a credit or debit card in the transaction.
  4. Orders placed online and over the telephone are final. By placing an order in this way, you accept that we are under no obligation to amend, cancel, or refund all or any part of your order, once the order process is complete.
