  • Starlight Rewards Cards / Online Accounts
    • You are responsible for promptly informing Starlight Cinemas if your Starlight Rewards card is lost or stolen by notifying a manager at a Starlight Cinemas location. You will be liable for any transactions that occur with your Starlight Rewards Card before the card is reported lost or stolen, and you will not receive credit reimbursement for any rewards provided pursuant to the unauthorized use of your Starlight Rewards Card.
    • When you register your Starlight Rewards card online, you will be asked to enter an e-mail address and password and/or card number.

  • Earning Points
    • To earn points at a participating Starlight Cinemas, you must either present your Starlight Rewards card, or provide the cashier your email address (or phone number, if you provided it upon enrollment).   Points are earned at the rate of 10 points per dollar spent on eligible tickets and concession items.  Additionally, bonus points may be earned in conjunction with special offers that will be emailed periodically to those members who have opted in to email communications.
    • If a member forgets to present their card during the transaction, points can be retroactively credited to the member's account if the member can present ticket stubs or a receipt for the transaction, and the transaction was less than 30 days in the past.  Points cannot be credited if the transaction has already been attached to a Starlight Rewards account.
    • Please allow up to 72 hours for points to reflect on your membership account. If you believe that points have not been properly credited to your account, please contact a manager at your local Starlight Cinemas.
    • Starlight Rewards points have no cash value and are not considered to be property of the Starlight Rewards member.  Rewards issued in conjunction with the Starlight Rewards program also have no cash value.
    • The following items are not eligible for earning points when purchased: Gift cards (points can be earned when the gift cards are used, however), Premiere tickets, group sales, theatre rentals, Groupons, Dealflicks, other third party purchases.
    • In the event a member obtains a refund for a transaction linked to their Starlight Rewards account, points earned for the refunded items will be deducted from the member's account.
  • Redeeming Points
    • Various concession items and ticket types will be available for purchase using the member's accumulated points.  Eligible concession items may be purchased at a rate of 100 points per dollar of the menu price (for example, a $5.00 item would cost 500 points).   Ticket redemption costs may vary. 
    • Members must have sufficient points to cover the entire amount of the reward.  Partial point payment is not allowed.
    • When a member presents their Starlight Rewards card to the cashier, the computer system will display a list of any rewards the member is eligible to purchase with their current points balance.
