The silver movie passes are not valid after 6:00pm at movies designated with a ★ in the local movie listing, which usually indicates a new release or a "No Pass" special engagement. The gold movie passes are valid for any movie, anytime.  Neither pass is valid for special events. Passes are subject to availability and the price is subject to change without notice.  Movie passes for the Cinemark theatres in Ventura are also available for purchase.  Tickets may be purchased online and shipped, or may be picked up in the Axxess officeDo not bring your card to the box office.


How do I know which movie pass to buy?
Look at the movie listings online.  Select the movie and theatre you'd like to visit.  If it says "Sorry, No Passes." you may not use the Silver Pass after 6pm.  If you intend to go to an evening showing, you'll need the Gold Pass.
