State Cinemas Nelson respects your privacy and recognises the need to protect the personally identifiable information (any information by which you can be identified, such as name, address, and telephone number) you share with us.

We would like to assure you that we follow appropriate standards when it comes to protecting your privacy on our web sites.

In general, you can visit the State Cinemas Nelson website without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. We track the Internet address of the domains from which people visit us and analyse this data for trends and statistics, but the individual user remains anonymous.

Some of our web pages use "cookies" so that we can better serve you with customised information when you return to our site. Cookies are identifiers which a web site can send to your browser to keep on your computer to facilitate your next visit to our site. You can set your browser to notify you when you are sent a cookie, giving you the option to decide whether or not to accept it. The information we collect and analyse is used to improve our service to you.

There are times when we may collect personal information from you such as name, physical address or telephone number. It is our intent to inform you before we do that and to tell you what we intend to do with the information. Generally, you will have the option not to provide the information, and in the future, you will be able to "opt out" of certain uses of the information. If you choose not to provide the information we request, you can still visit the State Cinemas Nelson website, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers and services.

State Cinemas Nelson will not sell, trade or disclose to third parties any information derived from the registration for, or use of, any online service (including names and addresses) without the consent of the user or customer (except as required by subpoena, search warrant, or other legal process or in the case of imminent physical harm to the user or others). State Cinemas Nelson will allow suppliers to access the information for purposes of confirming your registration and providing you with benefits you are entitled to.

State Cinemas Nelson will take appropriate steps to protect the information you share with us. We have implemented technology and security features and strict policy guidelines to safeguard the privacy of your personally identifiable information from unauthorised access and improper use or disclosure. State Cinemas Nelson will continue to enhance our security procedures as new technology becomes available.

Cancellation Policy

Order Confirmation

If you do not receive a confirmation number (in the form of a confirmation page or email) after submitting payment information, or if you experience an error message or service interruption after submitting payment information, it is your responsibility to confirm the Booking from your booking history whether or not your order has been placed. Only you may be aware of any problem that has occurred during the purchase process. State Cinemas Nelson will not be responsible for losses (monetary or otherwise) if you assume that an order was not placed because you failed to receive confirmation.

Your Booking confirmation will be sent via an email; to the email address that you entered on the Booking Confirmation page. This confirmation needs to be printed and shown at the Cinema Ticket Counter or Booking reference entered at a Cinema Kiosk (where this is available) in order to obtain a physical ticket for entry to the movie session/event. You will also need to provide the credit card used to purchase the tickets for picking up the tickets at the Cinema/Venue.

Refunds and Exchanges

State Cinemas Nelson does not offer exchanges or refunds after a ticket has been purchased. So, before completing the payment transaction, ensure you carefully review the booking details. Only under special circumstances will a refund be considered. Please contact the duty manager on the day.

If disruptions occur, whether technical or otherwise, please contact a staff member or Manager as soon as possible in order to allow us the opportunity to deal with the situation in the best interests of all parties concerned.  State Cinemas do not have staff present during the screening of films at any of our sites and therefore do rely on your feedback if anything is amiss and will do everything in our power do address/resolve said situations as swiftly and seamlessly as possible on the day. 

Pricing and Other Errors

If the amount you pay for a ticket is incorrect regardless of whether because of an error in a price posted on this web site or otherwise communicated to you, or you are able to order a ticket before its scheduled on-sale or pre-sale date or you are able to order a ticket that was not supposed to have been released for sale, then: State Cinemas Nelson will have the right to cancel that ticket (or the order for that ticket) and refund to you the amount that you paid. This will apply regardless of whether because of human error or a transactional malfunction of this web site.

Cancelled/Postponed Events

Occasionally, events are cancelled or postponed by the promoter. Should this occur, we will attempt to contact you and refund the amount as per the policy of the organiser.

Unaccompanied Minors

State Cinemas can not take responsibility for any dependent persons left on the premises unaccompanied for any reason or any length of time. It is the carer or parents’ responsibility to make sure all necessary arrangements are in place for the safety and wellbeing of any vulnerable persons left unaccompanied, on the premises.
Although State Cinemas’ staff will always endeavour to assist wherever possible, we strongly advise that unaccompanied minors in particular should have a phone on them when left at the Cinema so that communication with carers/parents can easily be achieved
