Ten-Trip Pass

The Ten-Trip Pass consists of a unique barcode that can be used to purchase tickets to any screening, subject to seat availability (passes are not tickets and do not guarantee admission), and excluding 3D films, Special Events and Live Cinema performances. Passes can be purchased and redeemed for tickets in advance online, via the phone or at the Aotea or Civic Box Offices. Passes can also be redeemed on the day at all venues, subject to seat availability.

After purchasing your pass, you will need to download your Print-at-Home ticket and use the unique barcode number to redeem your pass for tickets to individual sessions. Note: you must enter your barcode without spaces or Ticketmaster’s website will not find it. (The barcode is issued immediately when purchased at the Box Office or via phone.) Once all ten tickets have been redeemed, the barcode will expire.
