IMPORTANT CHANGES REGARDING COMPLIMENTARY ADMISSION TO CINEMAS
The President and Executive Committee are pleased to advise that Greater Union, Event Cinemas, Hoyts, Village, Birch Carroll & Coyle, Reading Australia, Wallis Cinemas (SA), Grand Cinemas (WA), and IMAX Theatres (in Sydney and Melbourne) will honour a Photo ID Pioneer Membership Card by offering complimentary admission to a Pioneer and one guest to participating cinemas on any day (including weekends), now including 3D movies and glasses (Please note the cinema community ask that in the interests of being environmentally sensible, you all make best efforts to retain your glasses for future visits).
Exceptions are as follows:- the Photo ID Pioneer Card cannot be used on Saturday evenings after 6:00PM, on Public Holidays, Premium Seating, and Special Programmes (e.g. Special Previews and Premieres, and those programmes signifying “No Free List” Tickets).
In addition, Hoyts has advised that exceptions also extend to Hoyts La Premiere, Directors’ Suite, Bean Bag Cinema, Xtremescreen and Hoyts IMAX.
REPLACEMENT OF BLUE MEMBERSHIP CARDS WITH NEW “PHOTO ID” MEMBERSHIP CARDS
In accordance with the consistent policy agreement reached between the major circuits (Greater Union, Hoyts, Village, Reading, Palace and Wallis) regarding the use of the Pioneers’ Membership Card, effective immediately, existing blue Membership Cards will need to be replaced with Photo ID Membership Cards for complimentary admission to cinemas.
To acquire a Photo ID Membership Card, simply have a passport photo taken at a local chemist or Australia Post shop and send it (together with your existing blue Pioneers Membership Card) to the National Secretary / Treasurer Bruce Leonard
(at 9 Collins Crescent, Lapstone, 2773) and a new Photo ID Membership Card will be forwarded to you – at no cost
