Are you affiliated with the children’s television network?

No. Not at all. In fact, we’ve been around longer than they have.

How much do tickets cost?

Tickets range from $6­-$11 depending on the day, time and membership status of the person buying the ticket.

How far in advance do you set screening times?

This can vary, but at the very latest screening times will be set on Monday for the coming weekend.

What time do the movies really start?

We aren’t one of those theaters that shows 25 minutes of commercials and trailers before our films. We do all we can to start our programs on time and show only a few trailers, so please arrive prior to the published screening time.

What is your policy on late arrivals and no shows?

As a courtesy to our patrons and to ensure the highest quality theater-going experience the Nickelodeon reserves the right to stop telling tickets after the feature film begins.  

Our seating period begins 30-minutes prior to show time and concludes 15-minutes after showtime. Please arrive at the theatre early in order to find the best seat in the house!

In the event of a sold-out screening, the Nickelodeon reserves the right to release unclaimed tickets to the standby line 15 minutes after showtime. If you anticipate being late to a screening, please contact the Nickelodeon box office by phone at 803-254-8234 and dial 0, or e-mail us at [email protected] to request for theater hold your tickets. Refunds for unclaimed tickets will be processed up to 24 hours after the scheduled screening.

A limited quantity of standby tickets become available for most sold-out screenings. A waiting list will be created 1 hour prior to the scheduled showtime. To be added to the waiting list call the Nickelodeon box office at 803-254-8234 and dial 0. In order for your place on the waiting list to be valid you must arrive at the theater and check-in with management 30 minutes prior to showtime.

Can I bring my own food and drinks into the theater?

We only allow food and drinks from our concessions stand in the theatre with two exceptions: treats from Sweet Cream Co. and Mast General Store. Our concessions are modestly priced and we offer a wide array of snacks, soda, beer and wine.

Where do I park?

There are two parking garages within a block of the theater in addition to metered parking. For details, please click here.

Do you offer group discounts?

Yes. Groups of ten or more can request discounted tickets. Certain restrictions apply. For more information contact our Programming Coordinator, Amada Torruella ([email protected]).

I have a great idea for a film/event. Who can I talk to about bringing it to the Nick?

You can email our Programming Coordinator, Amada Torruella ([email protected]) with any suggestions. Please be advised that special screenings and series are often booked several months in advance and that we cannot accommodate all requests.
