I was told that all tickets are priced just £4?

This is correct, all general admission individual cinema tickets are priced just £4.00 each. This applies to all performance types, including 3D showings. We do not offer a wide range of discounted ticketing, other than for Students and families – the cinema is primarily run on a basis of £4.00 for all – with some exceptions.

So I’m a student, how much is the price of a student cinema ticket?

At Premiere Cinema we can appreciate that students don’t have so much expendable income, whilst still making up a huge part of the local economy. Therefore to all students who possess a valid in-date student ID card or NUS card we offer a £1 discount on the regular cinema ticket pricing. All student cinema tickets are therefore priced just £3.00 each.

What about Families?

Don’t worry, we offer a family ticket! So that a family group can save a little extra also. A family ticket at Premiere Cinema is priced just £14.00  and admits 4.  A family ticket is sold in multiples of four tickets, to a group with a maximum of 3 children who must be accompanied by at least one adult, each Family ticket must also have at least one Child within the group. Please remember this is a family ticket and your teenage children up to the age of 18 are not excluded from this offer. Individual tickets sold within the family ticket are non-refundable – if you require a refund for any reason then you must refund the whole family ticket and repurchase individual tickets at the usual price of £4 each.

Should I book my tickets in advance?

We strongly advise that all customers pre-book their tickets in advance via our website. At peak times the cinema is often very busy and screenings regularly sell-out. Booking in advance is a sure way to be certain that you’ll get to see your film and won’t turn up disappointed. You'll be charged a 50 pence booking fee per each ticket purchased.

I’ve booked my tickets online, what do I need to bring with me to collect them?

You can collect your tickets using the card you paid with at our ticket collection point. Alternatively without your card, once you’ve received confirmation of your booking through the website – you’ll receive a 6 digit booking reference number which can simply be redeemed at one of our till points.

What is your refund/exchange policy?

If you can no longer make a performance for reasons that are out of your control then we are happy to offer a refund or an exchange on your tickets for another performance at another time. This refund/exchange must be made prior to the performance starting however. No refund or exchange can be offered after the performance has finished - this is non-negotiable. We ask that any guest that requires either a refund or an exchange comes into the cinema prior to the performance starting. Please note that with regards to family tickets, we will not refund individual tickets - only the entire family ticket. Refunds or exchanges can’t be made over the telephone.

I’ve accidentally booked tickets for Romford when I needed Cardiff, or vice versa.

If you are interested in either of these options then please send an email with your requirements to premierecinemacardiff@gmail.com and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

A film is rated 12A, can my child watch it?

This is a decision taken at the discretion of you, the parents. A 12A certificate means that some parts of the film may not be suitable for someone under the age of 12. However, we will happily welcome younger guests if they come to a 12A rated film with a grown-up. If a child looks under the age of 12, we will ask to see some form of ID.

Yes and No. You can bring your own snacks to the cinema, but please note our cinema snacks and drinks are priced much more reasonably than you’ll find in other cinemas. You will not be able to enter the cinema auditoriums with hot food purchased from local takeaways and restaurants – this is only because hot food has a strong odour which can ruin other guest’s cinema-experience.  

Can I bring my own alcohol into the Cinema Auditoriums?

No, we do have a licenced bar area– We do not however, allow alcohol consumption in any of our auditoriums. This is mainly to prevent anti-social behaviour but also to prevent possible hazards such as broken glass etc.
