Landmark Cinemas to start a paid loyalty program

Western Canadian theatre chain Landmark Cinemas will be launching Landmark Extras in September, a loyalty program based around three tiers, two of which are paid.

The free “Movie Fan” tier gives members the ability to earn points on movie purchases at Landmark’s 42 theatres, which can be redeemed for admission, concession and movie merchandise purchases.

The paid “Movie Insiders” tier is $20 per year, and comes with a free annual admission and the ability to earn 50% more points than the “Fan” tier. The “Movie Club” tier is $10 per month and, in addition to earning points, comes with one free admission monthly, as well as discounts on companion admissions and concessions.

Largely closed for much of the pandemic, Landmark began reopening its cinemas in July.
