FAQ

In the event of inclement weather (strong wind or rain), the show will either be moved to our indoor backup venue, the ZipZap Dome, or it will be cancelled. You will receive an SMS and email notification (sent to details provided during booking) as soon as a decision has been made. This email will contain all the details you need to claim your exchange/refund. Kindly note that no exchanges/refunds will be made after 7 days of the cancelled show.

Top Tip: For updates on the weather, please check our Twitter and Facebook pages on the day, or contact us on 071 471 8728.

  • If a movie is cancelled due to inclement weather, either the day before or on the day of the event before 6pm when doors are open, we will inform you of this via email and SMS. Please also keep an eye out on our website, Facebook page and Twitter page where we will keep you updated about the weather. You will then have the option of choosing another movie on another date or getting a refund. Please note that no refunds or exchanges will be given after 7 days from the cancellation date for any reason whatsoever.

All ticketing is handled by Webtickets. As soon as you purchase your ticket online, you will receive an email with your ticket. You can have your ticket scanned off of your mobile device, provided that the barcode is visible, or if you must, you can print the ticket out and have it scanned that way. Please do not forget either your paper ticket or smartphone as we won’t be able to let you in without one of these.

You can pay for your tickets online with Mastercard, Visa, Amex or Diners Club card.

Sure. You may also pay via EFT, Debit Card or Cash Deposit when purchasing your tickets online through Webtickets, or in-store at any Pick n Pay store. Alternatively, you can purchase your tickets at the door, provided that the screening is not sold out.

All photos will be uploaded to our Facebook page within 7 days of the screening.

Only if tickets are still available will you be able to get them at the door. These cost R130 for a standard ticket and only cash will be accepted as we do not always have credit card facilities available at the door. Chairs and blankets can be rented on location too, for R20 and R10 respectively and cash only.

We have various delightful, local food vendors selling a wide range of foods, including Halaal and vegetarian options. These include (for most venues) pizzas, nachos, wraps, popcorn, candy floss, sweets, cool drinks, coffee, beer and wine. Please visit the Food page for specific information about food sold at each venue.

You may bring your own food (except alcohol at wine estates) but most people buy on location.
