    At Dendy Cinemas groups of 10 or more receive admission discounts, which vary based on total number of tickets purchased. Please note, this form of booking does not give you private cinema use, or the option of in-cinema presentations, however catering and candy bar deals can be negotiated.

Buying books of 10 allows you to access a discounted ticket price, though it does not allow for private cinema use or in-cinema presentations.

  • Open Menu Close Menu Can we watch any footage?

    Yes, you can. We can screen the latest Dendy releases, but also your favourite golden oldie, your home movies, or even a TV show. We will always need to make sure that we have the footage in the correct format for our projectors, and that copy rights are taken care of, which may result in financial fees. Send our event manager your special request and we can help you create your perfect night out.

  • Open Menu Close Menu How far in advance do I have to make my booking?

    In cinema we are quite flexible, but dependent on availability. For group bookings, tickets become available on Tuesday at 4pm for the week following Thursday.

    For an event, you can contact us about two weeks in advance, which should give us enough time to work through all your details together. The further you plan ahead though, the bigger the chance you can make a reservation on the day you would like to hold your event.
