Why doesn’t your web site list the movies you’re getting in the future?
We often will not receive confirmation from the studio until 3-4 days before the movie is scheduled to start; which is why we suggest you sign up to receive our weekly newsletter OR that you check the web site or Facebook page for updates.

I Googled a variation of “Peterborough Movies” and it said a specific movie was showing, but when I arrived at the theater there was something else playing. What gives?
The only web site that provides accurate information on what’s currently showing at Peterborough Community Theatre is ours, pctmovies.com. We cannot be held responsible for data that Google, Flixter, Bing, or any other sites/apps pull off the Internet. We suggest you bookmark pctmovies.com.

I saw several trailers before a movie recently, does that mean you’re getting all of those movies?
Not necessarily. Chances are we’ll get at least one of those movies. We show trailers and display posters to get feedback from the audience of what they’re interested in seeing.

There are three movie posters on display in your lobby, will you be getting all of those movies?
See answer to question above.

Do you show movies in 3D?

No, we do not. We only show movies in 2D.

Do you permit reserved seating?
Here is our policy for reserving seats:

If someone is physically challenged and needs an aisle seat, we will reserve it for them and their guest. Examples would be someone with a broken foot or a walker. Please call ahead to 603-554-7999, at least an hour in advance, to let us know.

If a patron is wheelchair-bound, seating next to that person can be reserved for their guest. We ask that you call ahead to 603-554-7999 at least an hour in advance so that we can be prepared to assist you.

If you’ve purchased a movie ticket and want to save your seat, you may place your coat, sweater, or scarf on it to do so. However, we cannot guarantee it will be there when you return to the theater. but it usually will be respected. We live in a cool town with cool people. They’re cool like that. You may NOT place ropes or signs on your seats to reserve them, only we can do that.

Do you accept credit and debit cards?
Yes, we accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express. Our minimum charge is $5 and we prefer that you use credit cards as they’re less expensive for us to process than debit cards.

Does your debit card have a Visa or MasterCard logo on it? If it does, that means it can also be run as a credit, which is why we always ask you, “Debit or credit” when you’re purchasing your movie tickets.

But what exactly is the difference between a debit and a credit purchase?

Its simple: a debit purchase is considered an “online” purchase, completed in real-time, meaning you authorize the purchase with your PIN and the money is immediately transferred from your bank account to the merchant.

With a credit purchase, its considered an “offline” transaction because funds are deducted after the merchant settles the purchase with the credit card processor, which typically take 2-3 days to be reflected in your account balance.

Can I pay with Apple Pay, Google Wallet, etc.?
Yes, we accept all types of digital payments.

Is the theater available to rent for special events?
Yes, it is. Please contact the owner for more information at prbotheatre@gmail.com.
However, we do not rent the theater for kids’ birthday parties.

Do you sell gift certificates?
Yes. They’re available for purchase at the ticket counter during show hours. You can purchase them for whatever dollar amount you choose. They never expire and can be used towards tickets* or concessions.

Can I buy tickets in advance?
Our box office opens 45 minutes before show time; tickets can be purchased then for same-day shows only.

Why don’t you sell Junior Mints?
They tend to stick to the seats and the carpet, making them difficult to remove.

* Some studios do not permit free movie passes or gift certificates to be used towards ticket purchases. Also gift certificates being used toward tickets must be used in regular ticket price increments only. We have to report our ticket sales in whole ticket numbers to the studios, so if you have a gift certificate that only has say, four dollars left, we can’t report it as a whole ticket sale. In other words, we can’t sell half a seat. You can use those last four dollars for concessions.  If this is confusing, feel free to ask us when using your gift certificate so we can confuse you even more!
