2. How much do tickets to live shows cost?

 

Prices for live shows are dependent on the type of show and the price the promoter / producer is charging. Session times for live shows can be found on our website; clicking on the session time will take you to our online booking system. Seating may be allocated, so we advise you to book early to secure your favourite seat. 

 

3. Can I buy tickets online?

To book tickets online go to our Now Showing or Coming Soon page on our website, select a show and click on the session time next to the date of the screening or event. This will take you through to the ticket booking page. Online ticket sales attract a small surcharge to help pay for the cost of the service.

5.  Can I take food and drinks into the cinema?

Yes; any food items or drinks purchased at the cinema counter or in the Vic Lounge Bar are permitted to be taken into our cinemas.

 

6.  How can I hire the theatre, cinema or bar for my function or live show?

7. What group discounts are available?

Group prices only apply for regular full-priced tickets. For larger groups, please contact info@thevic.co.nz for a proposal to suit your needs.

 

8. What is the Fullers Ferry & Movie Deal and do I need to book?

The Fullers Ferry & Movie Deal is $19 for an adult and $12 per child (up to 14 years old) for which you get a return trip on the ferry plus a movie ticket. It is valid anytime for any movie playing at The Vic. Buy your Ferry and Movie pass from any Fullers Ferry Ticket office and make sure you reserve a seat for your movie. See the Fullers Website for more details.

 

9. Where can I park my car?

There is street parking outside the cinema, but it is limited to 60 minutes on weekdays. There is parking available for an indefinite time on Kerr Street, Rattray St or Buchanan St.

 

10. What are your opening hours?

We are generally open 7 days a week from 10am to 10pm and closed on Christmas Day. Opening hours are flexible and generally from 9am or about 30 minutes before the first screening until the end of the last screening. Extended hours may apply to accommodate special events, during school holidays and long weekends.

 

11. What's the difference between ice cream and gelato?

Gelato is churned at a much slower rate, incorporating less air and leaving the gelato denser than ice cream. Gelato is served at a slightly warmer temperature than ice cream, so its texture stays silkier and softer. Because it has a lower percentage of fat than ice cream, the main flavour ingredient really shines through. All our gelato are made from authentic ingredients and fresh fruit and most flavours are gluten free. We also have dairy-free options available – please ask our friendly staff.

 

12. How old is The Vic?

The Vic was opened on 26 October, 1912. Our Homepage page provides further history of The Victoria Theatre and The Victoria Theatre Trust.

 

13. Do you have wheelchair access?

The building and Cinema 1 is wheelchair accessible.  There is no access to the upstairs cinemas 2 and 3. We are fundraising to implement an elevator in the future.  Donations can be made to the Victoria Theatre Trust.

 

14. How do I apply for a job at The Vic?

You can drop your CV off to our Front of House staff or email your CV to info@thevic.co.nz.

 

15.  How do I enter The Vic under the Covid 19 Protection Framework?
