The Roxy Cinema is committed to providing a safe environment for all guests and staff. Discriminatory language or abusive, disruptive, belligerent, threatening, harrassing or discriminatory behaviour of any kind will not be tolerated. Gang affiliation patches must not be worn inside the premises. Additionally, we require all guests to follow instructions of our staff regarding health and safety, Liquor Laws, No Smoking laws, Covid protocols, fire and evacuation instructions or reasonable requests regarding standards of acceptable behaviour.

We reserve the right to remove anyone infringing our Safe Spaces Policy, and anyone appearing under the influence of drugs or excessive alcohol consumption without refund or compensation. In serious cases we will call the police for assistance and may issue a Trespass Notice preventing any future admission to the Roxy.

If you see an incident taking place, please do not escalate the situation or put yourself in danger. Contact a member of staff immediately or if there is an emergency, call 111.


The Roxy Cinema realise that circumstances can change, so we have a refund policy that we believe is fair for both you and us. In most cases we still have to pay the distributor and third party booking fees, so the earlier you can give us notice of a cancellation and refund request, the easier it is for us to be able to help. We do not have to provide a refund if you have changed your mind about a particular purchase, so please choose carefully. If the goods are faulty we will meet our obligations under the Consumer Guarantees Act to provide a remedy notwithstanding the following terms for refunds in other circumstances.

More than 24 hours notice before your film screens - If you give us more than 24 hours notice that you can't make the film we will transfer your tickets to another screening or provide a Roxy Cinema voucher for the ticket (excluding booking and credit card fees) that can be used within 12 months.

Less than 24 - 3 hours notice before your film screens - If you give us less than 24 - 3 hours notice that you cannot make the film we will transfer your tickets to another screening which is currently on sale, subject to availability and less any booking and credit card fees.

3 hours before or once the film has commenced - If less than 3 hours or once the film has commenced its scheduled start time, no refunds, transfers or exchanges for vouchers will be given.

Held unpaid bookings - We reserve the right to release for sale any bookings made that have not been paid for within 10 minutes of the films scheduled start time. 

Refunds for special events or event ticket sales - Please choose carefully as we are unable to refund cash for unwanted special or event ticket sales. In some extenuating circumstances we can offer a voucher for a similar monetary amount. Please contact us immediately to request.

We do not do refunds for overseas purchases of tickets. 

If there are extenuating circumstances please contact us. Please note the 'info' email is only checked irregularly during standard business hours so if you are trying to swap tickets outside of this time please call the Roxy Box Office on (04) 388-5555 ext. 2 as the system does not allow swaps after the session commences.

They are only eligible for use at the Roxy by presentation at the Roxy Box Office or at Coco when making a payment or can be used online to purchase items from the Gift Shop or ticket page following the website instructions.
