About Us & F.A.Q.
On Saturday mornings we have 'Kids Club', which is usually a film rated U/PG/12A that is about to expire from our library, or a classic Children's movie (requests welcome!). Tickets are just £3.00 each.
We can host many different events, from birthday parties to conferences. In screen 1 we have a capacity of 148 seated. Screen 1 also has a stage for performances and presentations. If you have any specific lighting or audio requirements please let us know.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I pay by card online? I don't have/want a PayPal account.
Depending on the device you are using, once you get to the PayPal page there will be two options.
I can't see what's on past Thursday!
Don't panic! We're not closed! We are only closed two days per year.
Do I need to bring 3D glasses?
Don't worry we'll provide these, and it will be included in your ticket price. We have fantastic Dolby 3D projection with 7.1 surround sound.
Can I take my child to see a film rated 15 or 18 as long as I accompany them?
No child under the age of the listed film rating may see the film, even if accompanied by an adult.
All cinemas in the UK follow and enforce the film classification laws the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) have set.
Valid ID must be provided if asked. If you look under the age of the stated film then you may be asked for proof of age. This can be: YOUNG SCOT CARD, PROVISIONAL DRIVING LICENCE, FULL DRIVING LICENCE, PASSPORT. Any other form of identification with the PASS mark.

I've booked the wrong show/can't make it to the show
If you can't make a show, we do ask that you call or visit us the day before. We can also swap your tickets to another show that day/week. Things can happen very suddenly so we do make exceptions. We cannot refund booking fees unless we are unable to show the film in question.
Is there wheelchair access?
We have a removable ramp for wheelchair users. We also have seats that are removable in Screen 1 to accommodate a wheelchair. Screen 2 is not equipped for this service. However this is in the pipeline for the development of the cinema. Please call us or email us at 01631 562905 or email@example.com to let us know you're coming.
Audio Described & Subtitled screenings?
All screenings in Screen 1 have Audio Description available. Ask at the Box Office for a pair of headphones.
This service is currently not available in Screen 2, but we hope to have this in the small screen in the future.
Subtitled shows are becoming a weekly occurrence at Oban Phoenix. We want the cinema to be as accessible to as many people in our community as possible. Check online for the 'HOH' (Hard of Hearing) label next to a film time.
