Re-opening the cinema to full capacity (from 28.01.22)

From Friday, 28th of January – the cinema will re-open the cinema screens to full capacity (in line with the latest guidelines from 28.1.22).

Since we re-opened the cinema in July 2020, there have been consistent changes to regulations/capacities and this has had a substantial impact financially and in terms of planning. We now hope that there are better times ahead and that "normality" and stability moving forward.

When the cinema re-opens, we're having to introduce a new pricing structure for film screenings:


Type of ticket

In advance

On the day

Full price

£6.50

£8.50

Over 60s
Disabled

£5.50

£7.50

Children (2 – 15 years old)
£5INEMA members (new scheme for 16 – 25 year olds)

£5

£7

Prima (annual membership scheme)

£5

£5

To join Prima (£18 for 1 membership / £30 for dual membership) please contact the Box Office : 01286 685 222.

To register for the £5INEMA membership (free membership for individuals aged 16 – 25 only) : https://galericaernarfon.com/eng/£5inema.html
*note it can take up to 72 hours for the membership to be confirmed so please register as soon as possible

We strongly encourage customers to buy tickets in advance to make the most of the cheaper tickets (ticket prices increase £2 each on the day of the screening).

In line with the government guidelines, cinema audiences must still:
  • Present a valid Covid Pass
  • Wear a face covering when walking around the building and when seated in the cinema

Cinema ticket price changes (temporarily)

Since 26.12.21, the regulations in place here in Wales in response to Covid (Omricon variant in particular) has had a substantial impact on our business. This is in addition to the negative impact the Covid Pass has had on admissions since its introduction in November.

For the cinema in particular, our:

  • Capacity has been significantly reduced. Sgrin 1 now has a capacity of 19 (29% of the full capacity) // Sgrin 2 now has a capacity of 45 (39% of the full capacity)
  • Film distributors remain to receive between 35%-60% of the ticket income (depending on the film/title)
  • Costs and company overheads remain consistent (staff costs / heating / electric / cleaning etc)

Unfortunately, we have no option but to temporarily increase our cinema ticket prices whilst social distancing is in place. From Friday, 21.01.2022 there will be a +50p increase per ticket, this means:

In advance

On the day

£6.50 £8

*Ticket price includes a booking fee of £1.50 per ticket

Once the restrictions on social distancing will be lifter, we will review the ticket prices once again.

Thank you for your understanding and your continued support.

New COVID restrictions (from 26.12.21)

Following the First Minister’s announcement (22.12.21), new restrictions introduced in Wales from 26.12.21.

Amongst the additional changes are the re-introduction of:
-  2m social distancing (cinema / theatre)
- the “Rule of 6” per visiting group (cinema / theatre / Café Bar)

The rules already in place also remain – including the Covid Pass, face coverings, customer data collection (for Track & Trace purposes), promoting hand sanitizing, social distancing and a one-way system into/out of the building.

We will update our Covid FAQ page regularly : https://galericaernarfon.com/eng/covid19.html
