TORONTO – Movie nights are about to get an upgrade as SCENE today announced the pilot of a new premium SCENE Gold loyalty card that offers bigger and better rewards for entertainment lovers. Beginning today, SCENE users in Edmonton, Alberta, can upgrade their membership to turn movie-going into the ultimate entertainment experience, with dedicated concession line-ups, premium upgrades and even MORE points. Participating locations include Cineplex’s six theatres across the city – including the newly renovated Cineplex Cinemas North Edmonton and VIP – as well as The Rec Room in South Edmonton and West Edmonton Mall.
“The SCENE loyalty program is all about rewarding entertainment-lovers for the fun, social and engaging experiences they have with family and friends. Our members have enjoyed its exclusive perks for over ten years,” said Matthew Seagrim, Managing Director, SCENE. “The launch of our new SCENE Gold loyalty pilot is one of the many ways we continue to test new models that offer bigger rewards and enhanced experiences to over nine million SCENE members across the country.”
Just like the SCENE loyalty program that Canadians know and love, SCENE Gold is an easy-to-earn, simple-to-redeem rewards program that enables members to experience bigger and better entertainment options with every purchase. As part of the pilot, SCENE Gold members will be able to:
- Earn 50% more points everywhere SCENE is accepted, including Cineplex theatres, the Cineplex Store and The Rec Room. Extra points mean members can earn a FREE movie admission with every three movie visits!
