Electric Shadows ticket increase

By Kerces 21 December 2005 4

In the Electric Shadows newsletter out today, Andrew Pike informed readers the cinema is going to have to raise their ticket prices.


Much as it goes against the grain, our costs have risen – wages, rent, and suppliers – so we are faced with the inevitable need to make a small increase in our ticket prices, effective from Thursday 29 December.

Adult tickets will become $15, and group concessions will be $13 (for members of ACT Writers’ Centre, ACT Film and TV Council, Australian Film Institute, Ausdance, Media Entertainment Alliance, Privileges and National Seniors).

But the good news is we will keep our Student, Senior and Child ticket prices the same. No increases! Full-time Students $9, A.C.T. Government Seniors $9, Pensioners and Children $8.

And even better news, our Six Tix passes also stay the same: only $54 for six tickets, valid for six months – a saving of $36 on full adult tickets!

And our Wednesday discount days also remain the same, i.e., $8 for all films at all sessions.

And remember that weekday matinees excluding public holidays (sessions starting prior to 5pm) are also great value – remaining at $9 for Adults, or $8 for Seniors, Students, Children and Pensioners.

You’d be right Terubo – it is interesting that prices for tix have to go up right now given the new partnership between Dendy and EShad is not far off…maybe EShad is thinking it needs to bring its pricing in line with Dendy just prior to the merger, if that makes any sense?

I could be wrong, but I thought there’s some sort of tie-up between the Shads and the new complex?

I agree…they should clean the place (dust) and place some appropriate seating before they put up their prices. I like their movies but not the venue. They’ll have a 8-9 theatre Denny to compete with soon as well in Section 84.

Unfortunately I just cant see movies here. The seating is so horrendously uncomfortable, within half an hour I have stiff neck and back and cant sit still.
Its a pity because I do like to watch many of the movies they show there.

Change the seating and Ill happily come and pay the $15.
