When you purchase a ticket to see a film via this website, the identity of the company from whom you purchase the ticket is the relevant company within Empires Cinemas. Empire Cinemas has appointed Empire Cinemas Limited to act as their agent for the purposes of this purchase. Empire Cinemas Limited will take payment from your credit/debit/store card on behalf of Empire Cinemas in respect of the admission price.
In addition to the ticket price, an Online Booking Fee is payable for tickets purchased online or via mobile devices, and this will be notified to you during the booking process. This includes purchases made using the Empire Cinemas Film Card.
The Online Booking Fee is charged by Empire Cinemas Limited for the online service which it offers to customers. Information about this charge and your contractual relationship with Empire Cinemas Limited can be found in the relevant Terms and Conditions. The fee is levied to cover ongoing web development costs and other IT related operational costs.
For the avoidance of doubt no part of the Online Booking Fee relates to the costs of card handling or for the use of a credit or debit card in the transaction. 

The Online Booking Fee will be charged at the rate of 70p per ticket up to a maximum of charge of £4.20 per transaction. These charges are highlighted at the very beginning of the booking process, and indeed throughout allowing the customer the opportunity to discontinue with the booking should they so wish.
