Cinemark Terms & Conditions
These Terms and Conditions govern use of the Cinemark website, the Cinemark mobile app, the Cinemark Connections program, and the Cinemark Movie Club program. The Cinemark website and mobile app (together, the “Site”) is an online store where you can participate in the Cinemark Connections program, the Cinemark Movie Club program and purchase movie tickets, gift cards, Supersavers discounts, and certain merchandise provided by, or through, Cinemark USA, Inc. (“Cinemark,” “us,” “our,” “we”) subject to your compliance with the Terms and Conditions set forth below.
The Cinemark Connections program (“Connections”) is operated by Cinemark. When you open an account on the Cinemark website you are automatically enrolled in Connections as a member (“Member”). As of January 1, 2017, all My Cinemark accounts are automatically enrolled in the Connections program. As a Member you are able to collect points and access Member benefits. You may be able to redeem the points in your account for benefits which may include, among other things, discounts, coupons, special offers, screenings, and other Member-only benefits (“Rewards”). Rewards are offered on a first-come, first-served basis due to limited quantities. Available Rewards are subject to change and may be subject to age-related restrictions solely at our discretion.
The Cinemark Movie Club program (“Movie Club”) is operated by Cinemark. When you enroll in Movie Club you will receive a monthly credit redeemable for one (1) regular 2D movie ticket at participating Cinemark theatres (and except in certain Cinemark theatres where an upcharge may be added) and will be able to access members-only pricing on tickets and concessions. Cinemark accounts are neither automatically enrolled nor required to be enrolled in the Movie Club program—you will be enrolled only if you elect to do so.
ARBITRATION NOTICE: EXCEPT FOR CERTAIN TYPES OF DISPUTES DESCRIBED IN THE “ARBITRATION” SECTION BELOW, AND IF YOU DO NOT OPT-OUT AS SET FORTH IN THAT SAME SECTION, YOU AGREE THAT DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND CINEMARK WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION.
Please read the following information carefully before using the Site or Connections. By clicking “I agree to the Terms and Conditions” you agree that you have read and understand these Terms and Conditions and are bound by them, as changed periodically. Cinemark reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify, alter, or otherwise update this agreement at any time. By clicking “I agree” when using Connections, or the Connections webpage at Cinemark.com or the Connections page in the Cinemark mobile app (together, “Connections Page”), after any changes to these Terms and Connections have been posted, you accept those changes.
Any changes to the Terms and Conditions will be effective only after the effective date of the change and will not affect any dispute arising prior to the effective date of the change. If you do not agree to any change(s) to the Terms and Conditions, you must notify Cinemark to terminate your Account or you must delete the Cinemark mobile app.
2. Participation in Connections
2.1 Participation: Enrollment, membership, and all related benefits of Connections are offered at our discretion.
Cinemark reserves the right to unilaterally modify, suspend, or discontinue all or any portion of the Connections program without notice in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
You may not sell, exchange, charge or otherwise dispose of any points or Member benefits except in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
2.2 Enrollment: To enroll you must meet the terms for participation established by Cinemark. Once your enrollment is processed and accepted by us, we will establish an account in your name (“Account”) and assign you a Member identification number (“User ID”). Access to your Connections Account is through the Cinemark mobile app. There is no fee to enroll in Connections. Enrollment is limited to one Account per Member per email address.
NOTE: THERE IS A FEE TO ENROLL IN MOVIE CLUB. You need not enroll in Movie Club in order to use Connections. The Movie Club program is separate and apart from Connections and is subject to additional Terms and Conditions, as set forth in Section 4 below.
2.3 Earning Points: Points are earned through making purchases on the Site and at participating Cinemark locations. At times, points may be earned via interactions with the Site or Cinemark social media accounts (for example, using the “CineMode” feature in the Cinemark mobile app). Points may not be earned or accrued by any deposit or transfer of funds to your Account.
In order to qualify to accrue points, you must identify yourself as a Member by presenting your User ID or required information when dealing with the Site and participating Cinemark locations.
Points that you accrue as a result of your transactions with the Site and participating Cinemark locations will be posted to your Account. Points will normally be posted to your Account within twenty-four (24) hours from the time of your purchase from the Site or participating Cinemark location, but we do not assume any liability for a failure to do so in a timely manner. You are solely responsible for checking your Account regularly to ensure that your points are properly credited. If proper credit does not appear on your activity statement, you should contact us via the Site and then provide any requested documentation to verify your purchase. We reserve the right to determine whether points should have been posted to your Account and to adjust your Account accordingly.
Some Cinemark locations may not participate in Connections. Membership entitles you to earn points only from those Cinemark locations in the United States participating in Connections. We may refuse to record or honor points in your Account, or if already recorded, we may cancel them, if we cannot confirm that they were properly issued or obtained. We may also cancel recorded points if the point-issuing Cinemark location tells us to cancel the points (for example, because you returned or did not pay for products or services for which the points were issued). Neither we nor any participating Cinemark location is responsible for any Reward or offer which is no longer in effect.
If you believe that any Account summary showing the number of points in your Account is in error, you must notify the point-issuing Cinemark location, or contact us through Cinemark.com, within thirty (30) days of the date the point was or should have issued or it will be deemed correct. You may be required to submit documentation (such as receipts) to support your claim. Members are responsible for emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to request points be added back for accidental redemption. However, we do not guarantee that points will be added back as requested.
Points have a value of 1/100th of one cent and are not redeemable for cash. Points are not eligible for re-sale or exchange. Points may not be used towards the purchase of a Gift Card.
There is a 24-hour daily points cap operating as follows:
Points may be earned for restaurant and alcoholic beverage purchases at participating Cinemark locations. However, Connections points are not redeemable for discounts wherever prohibited by state law, including, for example, for alcoholic beverages, dairy, etc.
Points accrued through zero-dollar transactions (for example, points accrued through use of the CineMode function in the Cinemark mobile app) are subject to review by us.
2.4 Adjustments: In the case of any failure by you to follow these Terms and Conditions or any other fraud or abuse related to Connections, including but not limited to your engaging in a pattern of returning or canceling products or services after the corresponding points have been credited, as determined by us in our sole discretion, we reserve the right to make any adjustments to your Account at any time and to take appropriate administrative or legal action. In such a case, some or all of your points earned through Connections may be forfeited and your Account closed, and we reserve the right to seek reimbursement from you for the cost of any Reward you received upon redemption of points that are subsequently deducted from your Account.
2.5 Redemption of Points; Rewards: Rewards are offered on a first-come, first-served basis due to limited quantities. Rewards will be removed from the “Rewards Carousel” once the limited capacity is met. We assume no liability for any delay in the removal of Rewards having met capacity. To redeem points to receive Rewards, you must log in to your Account in the Cinemark mobile app. On the Connections Page in the Cinemark mobile app, available Rewards will appear in the “Rewards Carousel.” Your points will automatically be applied to the transaction when you click “Redeem.” Once you have redeemed points, you must follow any additional instructions appearing on the Rewards page in order to receive your Reward. Rewards may at times be provided by film studios. In these situations, the studios and not Cinemark control the nature, amount, and timing of the Rewards.
Points may at times be redeemable for coupons. Each coupon is valid for one item only. There is a limit of one coupon per transaction. The coupon code and barcode must be visible for use. You may upgrade a free concession item to a larger size of the same item if you pay the difference in value between the item as listed on the coupon and the value of the larger sized item. Coupon offers are valid with Cinemark’s Annual Refillable Drink Cup and Popcorn Tub when applicable. Coupons are not valid with any other promotions or discounts. Coupons are not valid for re-sale. Coupons may not be used for free or discounted purchases of alcoholic beverages. Coupons have cash value of 1/100th of one cent, and are not redeemable for cash or eligible for re-sale or exchanges.
Points may at times be redeemable for digital downloads. Upon redemption of points for a digital download, the Member will be provided a code and a link to a third-party site. Use of such links is subject to the provisions of the “Links” section below.
Members may at times have access to enter sweepstakes being conducted by Cinemark. Any such sweepstakes will be conducted separate and apart from the Connections program and governed entirely by its own terms and conditions. Alternate means of entry to any such sweepstakes will be available by visiting the Site.
Rewards are limited to one Reward per Member. The one-Reward limit applies regardless of the number of points in the Member’s Account at the time and immediately after points are redeemed for a given Reward.
The size of Rewards received upon redemption of points is not guaranteed (for example, if the Reward offered is a T-shirt, Cinemark does not guarantee the Member will receive their preferred T-shirt size). Points will not be refunded based on sizing issues.
Members may be invited to redeem points for “Birthday Rewards.” Birthday Rewards are only redeemable one time per twelve-month period. Members must present their User ID and a separate valid form of identification at the time of redemption. Birthday Rewards are subject to change.
Points will expire if account has been inactive over a twelve-month period. An account will be considered inactive if there has not been any activity on the account such as earning, using or redeeming points. At the time of expiration, all points in an inactive account will be forfeited. Membership is not terminated upon expiration and forfeiture of points and the Member can continue to accrue points on the account.
We will not be taken to have waived any of our rights even if we redeem points or honor Rewards when not required.
2.6 Discontinuation; Suspension; Account Closure: To be considered active, a Member must have scanned his/her User ID or earned a Reward within the preceding twelve months. We may, in our sole discretion, at any time and without prior notice:
(i) Discontinue transmitting all or any part of the Content (as defined below) related to Connections;
(ii) Change, discontinue or limit access to Connections or any functionality, feature or other component of Connections; or
(iii) Suspend or terminate your use of or access to Connections or your Account, upon giving you notice of such suspension or termination, if we reasonably believe you have breached these Terms and Conditions.
You may elect to close your Account at any time by notifying Cinemark www.cinemark.com/contact-us. Upon closure, any rights to redeem points from that Account are lost.
2.7 Termination, Changes, and Breach: We may change any aspect of Connections, including issuing and redemption procedures or any Rewards in any respect, all without notice. For example, but without limitation, we may add, delete or change participating Cinemark locations, time limits for collection, redemption or use of points or Rewards; redemption conditions or procedures; or the value of purchases required for particular Rewards. Any changes will be effective only after the effective date of the change and will not affect any dispute arising prior to the effective date of the change. If:
we may, without affecting our other rights, terminate your enrollment and/or cancel your points and disclose only appropriate information requested by proper authorities. If points expire or are cancelled for any reason, they become void without compensation.

4.1 Program Overview. Enrollment in the Movie Club program is on the basis of a monthly membership fee (“Membership Fee”). An active Movie Club member (“Movie Club Member”), will receive one credit (“Credit”) per month valid for one regular 2D movie ticket. Additionally, Movie Club Members will also receive special members-only discounts on concessions at participating theaters.
Movie Club Members are automatically enrolled in the Connections program. As such, Movie Club Members are subject to the Terms and Conditions set forth in Sections 2 and 3 above. In addition, the following Terms and Conditions apply. If there is a conflict between any terms in Sections 2 and 3 and this Section 4, the terms of this Section 4 shall control.
4.2 Enrollment, Renewal, and Cancellation. Purchase is required for enrollment in Movie Club. Movie Club Members must be enrolled in Connections (however, enrollment in Connections does not require enrollment in Movie Club and there is no purchase required for enrollment in Connections). The Membership Fee may vary based on zip code and may or may not include applicable taxes. The Membership Fee and terms of enrollment will not be changed during the course of the membership month. However, Cinemark reserves the right to change the Membership Fee and terms of enrollment at the time of monthly renewal. If the Membership Fee and terms of enrollment are changed, Cinemark will send an e-mail notification to Movie Club Members prior to renewal with instructions for termination of the Movie Club account (“Movie Club Account”).
Renewal of the Movie Club membership is automatic. Cinemark will charge the credit card on record for the Membership Fee, typically on the 30th day of the billing cycle for automatic renewal. Unless the Membership Fee has changed, Cinemark will not send any e-mail notification prior to charging the credit card for a renewal. The exact date for the next monthly billing will be displayed in the profile page of the Movie Club Account.
The Movie Club Member is responsible for keeping the credit card information updated on the Movie Club Account. If the credit card on record cannot be charged, the Movie Club Account will be cancelled and Cinemark will send an e-mail to the Movie Club Member notifying the cancellation of the Movie Club Account effective as of the date of renewal.
A Movie Club Account is active and available for use immediately upon receipt of the confirmation email acknowledging creation of a Movie Club Account. Enrollment is limited to one Movie Club Account per Movie Club Member per email address. Cinemark requires that Movie Club Members be at least eighteen (18) years of age.
There is no required minimum enrollment period. Movie Club Members may cancel membership at any time through the profile management page. The cancellation will be effective from the billing cycle following the effective date of cancellation. The Membership Fee cannot be refunded. All unused Credits remaining in the Movie Club Account expire six (6) months from the date of cancellation.
4.4 Use of Credits. Movie Club Members will receive one (1) Credit valid for one (1) regular 2D movie ticket during each month of membership. Except in certain theatres where an upcharge may be added, each Credit may be redeemed for one (1) regular 2D movie ticket or the Membership Fee paid for the Credit, whichever is higher. The Credit can be used to book tickets at any participating Cinemark theatre. Credits may be redeemed only for regular 2D tickets; upcharges will apply for any non-2D or premium format tickets.
Unused credits (“Rollover Credits”) rollover into the following month. Rollover Credits continue to rollover and may be used indefinitely in an active Movie Club Account. If a Movie Club Account is cancelled, all Rollover Credits expire six (6) months from the date of cancellation.
Credits may not be partially used; the entire Credit is to be used on booking one ticket. Tickets booked with a Credit are transferrable and may be used by anyone. However, Credits may not be transferred and are only redeemable by the Movie Club Member who received the Credit in his/her Movie Club Account.
A Movie Club Member can use any number of available Credits in a single transaction. All outstanding Credits must be used prior to receiving the Membership Fee price on additional tickets. However, the number of transactions on a Movie Club Account is limited to three (3) per day. All tickets purchased after the third transaction will be at the non-discounted price but service fees will be waived for all transactions. However, discount programs, like AT&T Twosday, are excluded. There are no limitations on number of transactions for the concessions discount.
Credits once used cannot be refunded. However, ticket purchased with a Credit can be refunded so that the Credit can be used to purchase another ticket.
A Credit is not a Gift Card and is not redeemable for cash; it may not be used for any transaction except the booking of one (1) regular 2D movie ticket. Credits cannot be refunded. However, tickets booked using the Credit may be exchanged for a new ticket.
4.5 Member Discount; Purchase Process. Movie Club Members will receive a 20% discount towards the purchase of all concessions, except on alcoholic beverages, dairy, etc. wherever prohibited by state law.
One companion ticket can be purchased at the then current Membership Fee price for each transaction in which a Credit is applied (regardless of how many Credits are applied in the transaction). If a Credit is not available to be applied (i.e., after all Credits have been exhausted) a Member may purchase two tickets at the then current Membership Fee price per transaction.
Members must present their User ID, or a print-out or email associated with their Connections or Movie Club Account to book a ticket at the point of sale. Members may book tickets online and will receive a confirmation number as with an ordinary purchase. Tickets booked using a Credit or member discount cannot be purchased at a Kiosk. No online fees or service fees are applied to transactions booked through an active Movie Club Account. However, discount programs, like AT&T Twosday, are excluded. Cinemark reserves the right to require customers to present an alternate form of identification, such as a valid photo ID, while booking a ticket at the box office with their Movie Club Account, if they cannot present a valid Connections ID.
