School Field Trips FAQ
The field trip program is designed to open theatres, in the morning, for school groups and youth organizations. Movie start times are typically before 10:00 a.m. Exceptions may apply. We require 10 business days advance notice to book a visit.
No - while the auditorium will not be available to the general public, other school groups may be combined, if seat count permits.
We require a minimum of 50 people (students, teachers and parent chaperones and bus drivers) to open the theatre early. If you have a smaller group, we may be able to combine your group with another group, provided seating is available.
A field trip package includes (1) movie ticket and (1) concession snack pack or combo, per attendee. Pricing varies by theatre. Tickets cannot be purchased without concessions. Every attendee must pay the package price, including students, teachers, parent chaperones, and bus drivers.
Seating is only guaranteed for the number of pre-paid attendees. If seats are available, 5 or less extra attendees may join but must pay full price, at the door, for ticket and concessions.
Yes, teachers, school staff, bus drivers, parent chaperones must pay the school package price. No exceptions.
Payment is due at least five business days prior to your field trip. We will accept a school or PTA check, money order, credit card, or cashier's check. Purchase orders, cash and personal checks will not be accepted.
Field trips can only choose from movies that are currently playing. In most cases, field trips are booked several weeks in advance. At the time of your booking, we may know which movies are scheduled to be released around the time of your field trip. However, we cannot guarantee a movie will play at the preferred theatre until approximately two weeks prior to the public release date of the movie.
A movie typically will be available for at least two weeks. After that initial two week period, there is no guarantee a movie will remain available.
We will try to accommodate a request for a specific movie rating but cannot guarantee what movies will be available more than two weeks in advance.
If school is cancelled or delayed due to weather, we certainly will not expect your group to be at the theatre. While we do not offer refunds, we will reschedule your field trip as quickly as possible. We cannot guarantee the same film will be available for your rescheduled date. Contact your Cinemark Event Coordinator to reschedule your field trip.
