Electronic Gift Cards are now available in all Scott Cinemas venues, and to purchase online. Find out all about it here including how to buy a card, how to use it to book tickets online, and how to top it up and check your balance.
You can purchase a card in any Scott Cinemas venue, online using the options above, or by calling the telephone number below.
At the cinema, the cashier will swipe the card when selling it to you, and load it with the amount you require - the minimum value is £5.00, but there's no maximum, and you can have any value that you choose.
You will receive a wallet - we have Generic & Christmas style cards available - and envelope with the card. Within the wallet, there's space to write a message if the Gift Card is to be used as a present.
We have three different gift wallet designs to accompany your card. Choose from:
Do note that the above images are optimised for display on a computer screen and don't accurately represent what you will see in print - we can't show you the lovely matt silver here!
You don't have to be buying this as a gift - why not set youself a monthly 'movie budget' if you're a regular visitor? You can add value to the card at any time you choose, either by asking the cashier in the cinema, or by using the link below to top up!
If you're buying tickets in person at the cinema, simply present your card to the cashier. You can choose to pay using your whole balance (if the value of the purchase exceeds the value of the card, just pay the difference...) or you can choose to use a certain amount from the card, and save the rest for next time!
You can also use your card to purchase refreshments at the cinema.
If you've used all of your balance, why not keep hold of the card and top it up whenever you would like? You could set youself a monthly movie budget, or use it to give the kids a treat!
You can also redeem your card when purchasing tickets on the internet. Just follow the booking process as normal and click 'Pay Using a Gift Card' as your payment choice. You will be prompted to type in the card number, and also the 4-digit PIN from the back of the card - simply scratch off the panel to find this.
Sadly, you can't use your Gift Card to book over the telephone, and if you hold one of our older vouchers or earlier cards (without the electronic strip on the rear), you can only use these in person at the cinema.
You can purchase gift cards online using the options above. Just fill out the order and we will send it to you, or to the recipient of your choice. You can also call 01271 342 550 from 2pm daily to place an order by telephone. Simply leave a message and someone will call you back.. We can send the card to any address, but don't forget that if it's a gift, you may want to write a message to go with it first...!
We've sold many different types of Gift Vouchers over the years, and the information below should help you determine which kind of voucher or card you have. If you have any of our old yellow £2.50 vouchers, these are still valid and can be used at any time. We only sell the electronic Gift Cards now, but any of the existing vouchers can still be used in cinemas.
1. You can load your card with any value, but the initial minimum value when buying a card for the first time is £5.00. 2. Your card will expire 24 months after the first purchase date, unless you add value to it again. This means that you have two years to use the value thats on the card, unless you choose to add more to it - if and when you add value, the card remains active for a further 24 months from that date. 3. Finished with your card? Please dispose of it with care - it's plastic, so can go out with your household recycling, but make sure you cut the magnetic strip first. 4. Neither the card, nor our computer system, holds any of your personal data - the only info we store is the number encoded on the magnetic stripe and the current balance. 5. The physical card itself has no cash value. 6. If you lose your card, we're afraid that we can't recover the balance by any means. 7. We can't accept card numbers written down on paper - you must present the card to the cashier to exchange the held balance at the cinema. 8. We reserve the right to take out of circulation any card that we may believe has been used fraudulently. An example of fraudulent use is selling the card on internet auction sites. 9. If there is any cause for your purchase at the cinema to be refunded, the refund will be back to the Gift Card you used to purchase. Even if you have used the balance on the card, please keep hold of it for a few days. We cannot refund Gift Card balances back as cash, nor will we exchange any remaining balances on any card for cash.10. Scott Cinemas Gift cards cannot be used in WTW Cinema venues.
