What are your admission prices?

Our admission pricing varies based on time, day of the week and location.   To view these prices, click on a showtime and you will be navigated to the ticket purchase page where the pricing is listed before you check out.

When do doors open for seating?

  • Matinee & Evening Showtimes (showtimes between 10:31am – 8:59pm) doors open 1 hour before showtime.

At Chunky’s we recommend arriving close to doors open time.  This will also ensure you are here early enough to enjoy conversation with your party, drinks & dinner while the lights are still up in the theater!   This becomes even more important to consider when coming to see a popular new release or special event.

What are your rating policies?

G – General Audiences — All ages admitted. Signifies that the film rated contains nothing most parents will consider offensive for even their youngest children to see or hear. Nudity, sex scenes, and scenes of drug use are absent; violence is minimal; snippets of dialogue may go beyond polite conversation but do not go beyond common everyday expressions.

PG – Parental Guidance Suggested — Some material may not be suitable for children. This signifies that the film rated may contain some material parents might not like to expose to their young children – material that will clearly need to be examined or inquired about before children are allowed to attend the film. Explicit sex scenes and scenes of drug use are absent; nudity, if present, is seen only briefly, horror and violence do not exceed moderate levels.

PG-13 – Parents Strongly Cautioned — Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13. Signifies that the film rated may be inappropriate for pre-teens. Parents should be especially careful about letting their younger children attend. Rough or persistent violence is absent; sexually-oriented nudity is generally absent; some scenes of drug use may be seen; some use of one of the harsher sexually derived words may be heard.

R – Restricted — Ages 11 to 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian (Guardians are assigned by the court system in each state and the age of the guardian can vary by state). This signifies that the rating board has concluded that the film rated may contain some adult material. Parents are urged to learn more about the film before taking their children to see it. An R may be assigned due to, among other things, a film’s use of language, theme, violence, sex or its portrayal of drug use. Children 10 and under are not allowed to attend Rated R features.
