Movie Event Fundraising.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you donate Movie Tickets for Trivia Nights, Raffles, etc?
Unfortunately due to contractual arrangements with our film distributor partners we are extremely limited in the number of passes that can be made available for this purpose.
It is for this reason that we developed the "Instant Event Movie Fundraiser" concept to allow community groups the opportunity to use the latest release movies in their fundraising efforts.
What is an INSTANT MOVIE EVENT?
Instant Movie Events are simply a movie session that a fundraising group has selected to promote to their community as a fundraiser
There is nothing to organise - all they do is promote the event
Waverley Cinema manages all other aspects of your fundraiser
.. We provide the online seating plan for ticket sales
.. We process the online ticket sales.
.. We provide regular reports of ticket sales etc.
Can we have a private screening?
Any auditorium may be booked out at the current group concession price.
Payment for such bookings must be made prior to the Monday in the previous week before that booking.
(Play weeks are Thursday to Wednesday)
Can we select a film to be screened?
We can only screen the current release films that we have contracted to play.
We are not in a position to offer one off screenings of special releases, independent films,etc

Can we have multiple prices?
Unfortunately No. Our online seating manager requires one Event price.
Most events settle on a price that is midway between the Child and Adult price that they had in mind.
Children three and under are free if they do not occupy a seat.
ie; they will be sitting on their parents` knee.
How much effort is required to set up a Movie Fundraiser?
All you have to do is selct your film-Date and session slot.
From that point on we do all of the work apart from the promotion.
It is essential - as with any fundraiser - that you constantly promote the event via Facebook, Compass, Flexibuzz, etc.
You can set one up
simply by clicking on this link.
Do we have to commit to a minimum number of tickets sold?
Most bona fide fundraisers have no problems selling fifteen or more admissions.
However should an event fall short of that number we will always honour the booking
rather than disappoint or penalise the few that chose to support the event.
Can we include a "Goody Bag" "Snack Pack" etc in the Event Price?
You may provide such extras - BUT it must not include hot food or alcohol.
We can provide a foyer table for you to hand these out with the event tickets if required.
How do we know which films will be released in the coming weeks and months?
We are constantly updating our "Coming Soon" page on the website
Can our supporters donate if they cannot attend the event?
We include a "Donate" button on each Event Seating Plan
for those who may not be able to attend your event but still wish to support your cause.
Do we have to sell tickets and collect money?
- That is the reason we created the "Instant Event" concept.
To make fundraising as easy as possible..
Once your event seating plan is "live" Waverley Cinema will manage every aspect of the Fundraiser.
* We monitor the online bookings and process the EFTPOS sales

You do not do anything other than promote your event
WE CANNOT MAKE FUNDRAISING ANY EASIER THAN THAT !!
