ODEON realise that it's not always convenient to book online.  You can quickly and easily book your cinema tickets. You can use any of the following ways;
· using our fast and efficient Filmline 
· in person at our cinema box office (during normal box office hours)



Details can be found on our 'Contact Us' page, the link of which is located on this page.

At the end of your booking a page will display to provide a confirmation number. Please keep a note of this number, as you will need to bring it along with your card you used to pay when collecting your tickets at the cinema. You will also receive an email to confirm your booking. If the confirmation page does not display, you should check your email system to see if you have been sent the confirmation email.

You can collect your tickets from the Box Office or from the Automatic Ticket Machines in the foyer (selected cinemas only). You must remember to bring the card used during the booking process as this will be required to locate and issue your booking. Please ensure that you arrive well in advance of the performance to allow time to pick up your tickets. If you arrive after the performance has started, admission may be refused to avoid distraction to the guests already seated in the cinema.

For some performances you may be able to choose from all the available seats in that section (eg Standard / Premier) when you enter the auditorium, rather than having to sit in a specific pre-booked seat.

Child - 12 years and under* Available for those from 2 to 12 years. Babes-in-arms under 2 are admitted free of charge. Teen - 13 to 17* Available to those aged between 13 and 17 years of age. Proof of age may be required. Adult - Ages 18+ Available to those aged 18 years and older. Proof of age may be required. Senior - Ages 60+* Available to those aged 60 years and older.

Note: Tickets purchased using a student card cannot be transferred to any other individual. Only the barer of the valid student card may use student tickets. The student card will be required for inspection at the ticket check point and any guest in possession of student ticket without an accompanying valid student card, will be required up upgrade, or may be refused entry. Family - Available to any group of 2 adults and 2 children aged 12 or under or 1 adult and 3 children aged 12 or under. To purchase family tickets online, just select one of the "Family" tickets, which will automatically add four tickets at a time to your booking, a family ticket is only available for each specific performance and cannot be split over multiple performances. Family tickets are not available for ODEON Plus or special screenings and can not be used with any other offer or discount. * Proof of age may be required for any discounted tickets. Note that for performances after 7pm, children under 12 may need to be accompanied by an adult. For the types of ID accepted please see the entry "What forms of age related ID are acceptable" below. References to adult above do not have the same meaning as adult for the purposes of the mandatory conditions on the exhibition of films relating to the protection of children from harm as contained in the UK Licensing Act 2003.

ODEON can only allow admission to films in accordance with the certificate of the film and we are required to check the age of anyone who looks (or we believe may be) underage. If you look younger than the age required for a film you may be asked to provide some ID. Unfortunately we are unable to simply take someones word on their age or the age of someone in their party. This ID must include a photo and ideally should be one of the following: Passport, Photo Driving Licence, Student Card/School Pass with Photo and DOB, ValidateUK card, or age related scheme (such as the UK PASS-Scheme card, Prove-it Portman Card or Citizen Card orn the Irish governments "Age Card").

All guests aged 18 and over will be charged the adult ticket price. Children 12 or under are charged the Child price while young adults between the ages of 13 and 17 can get the Teen rate (except at the BFI IMAX and The Lounge).



In addition, we also offer a student discount to adults aged 18 or over in full time education if they hold a valid form of ID such as NUS, NUS Associate, or ISIC (which must be presented at the Box Office to get the discount). 



Tickets purchased using a student card cannot be transferred to any other individual. Only the barer of the valid student card may use student tickets. The student card will be required for inspection at the ticket check point and any guest in possession of student ticket without an accompanying valid student card, will be required up upgrade, or may be refused entry.

Whenever a film is released with captions for the hard of hearing we do try to schedule it at our cinemas, however due to the limited number of copies available we are not able to show it at all our cinemas (especially if it the captioned version has already been shown at a nearby cinema). Captioned for hard of hearing and Audio Described performances are listed separately so you can choose these specific performances.

In addition, the "Your Local Cinema" website provides full listings of captioned performances at ODEON and other cinemas. Please click here to go to the Your Local Cinema website (opens in a new window).

Once your purchase has been confirmed, your seats are held for you until the start of the performance time as published, and will not be sold to another guest. Therefore, payment is required for all confirmed bookings, irrespective of whether the tickets are collected or not. Please note that on occasion entry will be delayed for late arrivals in order to minimise distractions to the already seated audience.

ODEON have one of the most advanced automated telephone service in the UK to give our guests quick access to information or to book tickets 24 hours a day. It uses Speech Recognition technology to speed-up the call, however there are certain situations where it is difficult for the system to recognise short words. If you are trying to select a cinema by just saying the name of a very short town name, the system may experience difficulties. For example, if you are booking for Ayr saying "Ayr" may cause recognition problems, however just saying "ODEON Ayr" or "ODEON Naas" instead will result in success. Noisy environments: If there are problems with loud background noise, the system is designed so that users can change to a touch tone system just by pressing any key on their phone during a call. Alternatively saying "Operator" during the call will transfer you to an ODEON operator who will assist you further.
