with our email news

We are community owned and operated, a not-for-profit incorporated society, managed and run by volunteers.

As a community owned and operated cinema our volunteers are most important and manage most of the day-to-day cinema tasks. With their help we are delighted to be able to offer high quality and current films to people in Central Otago.


Become a volunteer

Central Cinema is run by volunteers. If you have any spare time, you might wish to become one of our valued volunteers. We look forward to your involvement.

To find out more or to volunteer please email our volunteer coordinator or fill in this form.

Members' Nights

As a member you will be invited to our occasional Members’ Nights.
Usually a Thursday night.
Never more than once a month.

Our loyalty programme

You will be awarded points on all ticket purchases at the rate of 1 point per $1 paid.

Spend $12 and you will be rewarded with 12 points.
Do that seven times and you will have 84 points — which is the exact number of points needed to exchange for a free $12 ticket.

Couples members double up, of course — two member-rate tickets earn 24 points.

If you are accompanied by another adult (non-member) and buy their ticket, you will be rewarded with 15 points for the $15 Adult ticket. So it won’t take so many visits to earn your next free member ticket.

You must be signed in to buy tickets that count for loyalty points.


All information provided by you in completing the Membership Application will be treated with the utmost confidentiality and will not be made available to any other organisation.
It will only be used by Central Cinema Alexandra for the purpose of administering membership benefits and communications.

Here are the steps to signing in

1: Here’s the top of the screen. Click on “Sign In“.

You are ready to buy tickets  at the member price or to earn loyalty rewards.

Forgotten Password

Forgotten your password, click on that “Forgot password“, that  you see above, on the right.


Here we are, signed in ready to buy tickets. Notice your name, and the  Sign out  button.
Don’t sign out unless other people might use the computer. (Saves the sign-in process each time.)

Buying tickets

If you have forgotten your password

You come to buy a ticket and find you have lost your password, what to do?

You can see at the top of the web page, where you would normally log in, the “Forgot password?” link, Click on that, put in your email and it will send you an email so you can reset your password

It slows you down a bit, as you have to wait for the email to arrive. (And, of course, if you put your email in wrong, nothing will arrive.)
