Guests who meet the eligibility requirements may register by creating a My Harkins Awards membership at Harkins.com/awards, downloading the Harkins Theatres mobile application from the Google Play Store or the App Store, or by acquiring a physical registration card at the box office of any Harkins Theatres location. There is no fee to register in the My Harkins Awards program, but eligible purchases and/or activities are required to earn Awards.

Registration requires that you provide the following information: phone number and email address. Additional profile information may be requested. Please see the “Privacy and Collection of Personal Information” section of these Terms and Conditions for more information.

Membership must be registered and in good standing in order to participate and redeem Awards.  You may only have one (1) My Harkins Awards membership per person and membership is non-transferable. The membership is intended for household use only. Individuals may not pool or combine Points with other members. Failure to follow the Terms and Conditions may result in termination of membership: see Termination of Membership.

Physical membership cards are not required; however, if your My Harkins Awards membership number is lost or stolen please visit your nearest Harkins Theatres location or email us through Contact Us or GuestServices@harkins.com and request a new membership number. Harkins Theatres is not responsible for any transactions that occur without a membership number presented during time of transaction or with your My Harkins Awards membership before it is reported lost or stolen. 



Qualifying Purchases. You will receive one (1) Point for each dollar spent on qualifying purchases at Harkins Theatres locations. Points are calculated to the 2nd decimal (1.00) and are accumulated for purchase payments made with cash, credit card, debit card and Harkins Theatres Gift Cards.

Qualifying purchases include:

  • Movie tickets purchased at the theatre box office, kiosk, Guest Services, Harkins Theatres Online Ticketing or through our partners MovieTickets.com, Fandango and Atom Tickets

In the event a refund or return is processed for a qualifying purchase, the original payment method will be credited back, and the Points earned will be deducted from the member’s Point balance. If My Harkins Award Dollars were used for the payment method, then the total Award Dollars will be credited back to the membership and no Points would have been accumulated on the amount of the Award Dollar value used.

Points. Members will earn Points when presenting a My Harkins Awards membership number at any Harkins Theatres location at the time of qualifying purchase. Members are required to be logged in to earn Points for purchases through Harkins Online Ticketing and at store.harkins.com and are required to enter their membership number when purchasing tickets through Movietickets.com, Fandango, or Atom Tickets. Accumulated Points will expire after 180 days of inactivity on the membership.

Receipts or Ticket Stubs are required if a member would like to validate and receive any potential adjustment for Points missing from qualifying purchases. Please visit your nearest Harkins Theatres Guest Services location or email us through Contact Us or GuestServices@harkins.com for assistance.

Award Dollars. For every 200 Points accumulated from qualifying purchases, your membership will be credited with a $5 Award (worth 5 Award Dollars). After a $5 Award is credited, 200 Points will be immediately deducted from total Point balance. Please allow up to 24 hours for your $5 Award to be credited. Award Dollars can be redeemed in theatre for PlayCenter tickets, concessions, or towards the purchase or renewal of Popcorn Perks. You will need to present your My Harkins Awards digital or physical membership card at the time of transaction in order to use your Award Dollars. Award Dollars expire 180 days after issuance, are not transferable, and are not valid for purchases made on MovieTickets.com, Fandango, Atom Tickets or in theatre bar/lounge locations.

A $5 Birthday Treat Award is valid for 5 Birthday Treat Award Dollars that can be only be redeemed for any concessions items excluding alcohol.  A $5 Birthday Treat Award is issued to your membership 7 days prior to your registered date of birth and is valid for up to 14 days.

Harkins Theatres reserves the right to terminate a Membership and any accumulated Awards without notice, for any reason in our sole discretion, including, without limitation, abusive or offensive behavior by the Member while on Harkins’ property or any act in connection with a Membership that is deceptive, fraudulent, or abuses the Membership in any way, including, but not limited to, generating Points and Awards in any manner other than by making qualifying purchases in good faith or receiving Birthday Awards. Examples of deceptive, fraudulent, or abusive behavior include, but are not limited to (1) making a purchase either online, through Harkins or third party vendors, or at the theatre and then seeking a refund in an attempt to inflate spending or transactions on a Member’s account, (2) posting or sharing of Member-directed promotional offers or an account number on websites or reproducing a Member-directed promotional offer or account number for use by third parties or public websites, or (3) use of a Member’s account number for purchases by an individual who is not that Member or an individual in that Member’s household.



We may collect personal information about you if you participate in the My Harkins Awards program. We do not share your information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes, and you will not be contacted by third parties in connection with the My Harkins Awards program unless you affirmatively agree with a third party otherwise (for example, by opting in to receive information from a third party that is participating in a sweepstakes or other promotion on one of our websites). Please note that if you opt in to receive direct marketing from a third party, your information will be subject to that party's privacy policy. If you later decide that you do not want that third party to use your information, you will need to contact that third party directly. We recommend that you review the privacy policy of any party that collects your information to determine how that entity will handle your information.

At any time after joining the My Harkins Awards program or opting in to receive information from a third party, you may opt-out of receiving marketing communications from us or request that we not further provide your personal contact, demographic, and/or lifestyle-related information to third parties. Please see the information below regarding opting out.

For more information about our privacy and data security practices, please visit our Privacy Policy.



You have the choice to opt-out of receiving further marketing communications from Harkins Theatres. You can also change or modify information previously provided.

We provide My Harkins Awards Members with the option to store payment credentials on their My Harkins Awards account to facilitate the processing of their future purchases.  When you check out using your My Harkins Awards account, we will ask if you would like to save your payment credentials.  If you consent to save your payment credentials we will store your card credentials as a secured token issued from the bank after a successful authorization. This token may only be used to make purchases at Harkins and does not contain any information that could be used to make a transaction with another merchant, such as your 16-digit credit card number or CVV. When you proceed to complete a purchase on our website or app we will retrieve the secured payment token that was created from your credit card and associated to your My Harkins Awards account. You will then be able to use that secured token to make purchases on our website or app without needing to input your payment credentials again.

If you choose to store your payment credentials we will store them until you advise us otherwise.  In other words, your consent to store your payment credentials will not expire unless it is expressly revoked.  If we make any changes to the terms of your consent you will receive an email notifying you of such changes at the email address associated with your My Harkins Awards account.

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Harkins Theatres and its employees, contractors, agents, officers, managers, and directors from all liabilities, claims, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) that arise out of or are related to your violation of these Terms and Conditions or your participation in the My Harkins Awards programs.
