We do not have debit/credit card facilities at the box office so payment by cash or cheque only, please. Debit/credit card facilities are available for advance booking (see below).
The auditorium has 280 seats, of which 100 are available for booking in advance online - so tickets are available first come, first served at each performance even if all of the seats available for booking have been reserved - but if the auditorium is liable to sell out, those in the queue who have booked will be called forward. Bookings are not allocated to specific seats.
Tickets can be reserved and paid for at movietickets.co.uk (click on this link), selecting the required date, time and film (link opens in new browser window). It is not necessary to have an account with movietickets in order for them to process your card (you may log in as guest). If all bookable seats have been sold at a specific performance or there is less than an hour before the screening, the option to book at that performance will be greyed out.
Gift vouchers are also available in multiples of 5.00 / 10.00 / 25.00 and can be purchased at the cinema when the box office is open before films begin, or at the Silk Shop in the Heritage Centre. If the full amount is not redeemed at a single visit, the balance is carried over until used.
The cinema opens 30mins before screenings.
The running times for films is given in the
information called up by clicking the film image and if you then add 10
minutes for the advertisements that play before a film, you will have a
good approximation of the time at which the end credits finish.
car parking is available immediately behind the building in front of Tesco Metro, off Churchill Way. Please do not park in the Heritage Centre forecourt unless disabled access is required.
For those travelling by
bus, there is a stop adjacent to the venue in Churchill Way and Macclesfield s Bus Station is close by.
