$8 Student Movie Tickets @ Event Cinemas (Some Exclusions Apply)


Saw this one on Facebook. Event cinemas has their $8 student movie tickets extended to every day for the school holiday period. This includes new releases and is a great way to get the kids out of the house!

Not valid for The Lion King. Not valid for sessions after 5pm Saturday

Should also work in-person if you ask them and show your student card or else an online booking fee does apply!

  • Must be desperate to get customers

    • Not surprising when a 4pm session on Saturday is $29 for an adult!!


        It depends on the cinema. Almost all cinemas are $10.50-12.50 per ticket (full price) here in the Hunter region.

  • valid student id is needed.. but you can just print out at the machine haha

  • Where do we enter the coupon?

  • great way to get the kids out of the house

    I dont think the context of "getting kids out of the house" was meant for sending them to a cinema house.

  • They're normally $7 with a student ID when you buy at the counter. I guess this could be handy for pre-booking a popular movie, but it's normally cheaper..

    • Depends on the location. The $7 student tickets aren't applicable to all cinemas, I know Myer Centre Brisbane is one of the participating cinemas.

      • Ah fair enough, I've been to majority of Events in and around Brisbane and I've never paid more than $7.

    • In NSW it's $8 for students but only on Mondays. So this one is better

  • Thanks for the code, will probably be removed from the post soon like last time

  • Wonder if this applies to kids tickets?

  • Does this work for Village as well?

  • Not valid for The Lion King. Not valid for sessions after 5pm Saturday

  • Nice deal. This code also reduces Vmax tickets down to $13 for me (student price normally $20.50). At my local event cinema, some specific movies seem to be only offered in vmax or gold class.

  • Do event cinemas still allow children under 3 for free ?

    • When clicking the "i" on the child ticket, it says:

      Age restrictions will vary depending on the content shown and the age of the child;

      Children under 3 years of age are admitted free when accompanied by a paid ticket holder if the intention is that they will sit on the adults lap except for Event Junior sessions where children under 1 year of age are admitted free when accompanied by a paid ticket holder.

      If the accompanying adult would like the child to have their own seat, then they must purchase a child’s ticket. Once they have turned 3, they must purchase a valid ticket.

  • All tickets still showing as full price even after I've added the code, Event Cinemas Marion SA.

    (unless because it's Tight Arse Tuesday and all tickets are reduced/same price anyway? ie. All Spider-Man tickets showing as $15 today in general sessions)

    • Try adding the voucher code by clicking, " I have a voucher/code" while booking a ticket. You should get another option.

      • Nice, thanks, that works! :-) Only letting me add a maximum of 2 tickets at this rate though.

        I was just following the instructions from someone else above that said just to add it in the 'Edit Details' section of your account.

      • Sorry just tried doing this but it's telling me invalid promo code? (Spiderman FFH - Macquarie)

        EDIT: seems like they might not be participating

  • Does this work for primary school kids? they do not have a student ID.


      School Bus pass should pass for student ID ?
      Or maybe it is all opal cards etc these days .

  • Anyone know if this is valid for Tafe Students?

  • Students are poor. They deserve to have special deals, though the special deals should apply to other categories of poor as well: dole recipients, pensioners who don't own a home, DSP recipients, single mother payment recipient …

    I recently read that poor people spend 10% of their income on communications services, and wealthy upper middle-class folk only 1%. What is pocket change for liberal voting aspirationals, is a huge expense for ALP voting lumpenproletariat.

    • "pensioners who don't own a home" Really. Pensioners who own their home are poorer than pensioners who get large amounts of rental assistance because they have never gone without through life to be able to buy a home.

  • My kids are in Yr 3… they are students. They don't have a bus pass or ID. Are they excluded? Seems annoying to pay $5 extra/child when technically they are "students"…. Hmmm.. What should I do?
