Prior to the Covid pandemic and consequent government restrictions, the privilege of using the Cinema Card was extended to our members by Event Cinemas, Hoyts, Village, Palace Cinemas, Birch Carroll & Coyle, Reading Australia, Wallis Cinemas (SA), Grand Cinemas (WA), and IMAX Theatres (Sydney & Melbourne) by honouring a Photo ID Pioneer Membership Card offering complimentary admission to a Pioneer and one guest to participating cinemas on any day (including weekends), including 3D movies and glasses. The Covid pandemic has meant that cinemas are now operating under tight restrictions and many of them are shuttered. Some will be unable to offer any free tickets, including the Pioneers Cinema Card, and others may accept the card with restrictions. Please check with the individual cinema for any screening you wish to attend.
In any case, Please note:- Exceptions are as follows:- the Photo ID Pioneer Card is not able to 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 LUX, Xtremescreen and HOYTS IMAX.
To the best of our knowledge, the following Independent Cinemas agreed to honour our Membership Card, but again this may no longer be the case:-
The President and executive Committee are grateful for the privileges extended to our members, and thank all cinemas involved.
