Reserved seating

As from Wednesday April 5th, we will introduce a new free-of-charge service which will enable you to enjoy even more your time at your Pathé Balexert movie theatre. Reserved seating will allow you to choose your favorite place in the auditorium whether it is in the front row or on the right-hand side, to sit with your friends or family members and to save time. Please note that your seat will be reserved and guaranteed until the movie starts. 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

When purchasing tickets online or at the ATM, you first need to choose the number of tickets you would like to purchase. The system will automatically preselect seats. You now have the option to remain with the preselected seats or to click and select any other open seats that you prefer. If you prefer to buy your tickets at the box office, you will be able to select your seats directly on the digital screen.  

Available seats are indicated in light grey, booked seats in dark grey and and your seat selection is displayed in yellow.

HOW DO I FIND OUT WHERE MY SEATS ARE?

Whether bought online, purchased at the theater or at the automated kiosks, your reserved seat is indicated on your ticket. The seat information consists of a combination of letters and numbers containing the row indication as well as your seat number. 

In the auditorium, row letters are indicated on the armrest and the seat number is visible on the seat back as well as on the cup-holder. If you need assistance or if you are unable to locate your seat, please do not hesitate to ask our staff members who will be happy to give you further information.
