The renowned PVR Movies has a special weekday pass, with which you can watch 30 movies in 3 months. If you’re an avid moviegoer, this will greatly benefit you. With the PVR Passport, you can watch a movie for as low as Rs 50 (plus convenience charges and GST).

PVR Passport is a prepaid subscription service from PVR Movies that gives you access to 30 movies in 90 days for a price of Rs 1,500, with a limit of 10 movies per month. It is a weekday pass and cannot be used on Saturday and Sunday. It is a bummer, but it is what it is. Let us discuss everything you need about PVR Passport here on this page.

How does PVR Passport work?

You can use PVR Passport to pay for a movie costing up to Rs 400 daily. It can only be used for redeeming one ticket a day. It is called the PVR Passport Weekday pass, and you can only use it on weekdays.

PVR Passport

With PVR Passport, you’ll be given a multi-use voucher code that can be redeemed once daily to book your tickets on the PVR app or website. You cannot use the PVR Passport to book tickets at the counter; you must book your tickets online.

The ticket price is limited to Rs 400 per booking; if the price goes above Rs 400, you will have to pay the difference. For example, if the ticket price is Rs 500, you will be asked to pay the remaining Rs 100 once you redeemed your PVR Passport voucher for Rs 400.

There’s also one more catch. You still have to pay the convenience fee and taxes on booking a ticket, and the ticket you are booking is only partially free when using PVR Passport. For example, if the movie cost is Rs 250 and the convenience fee and taxes come to Rs 50, only Rs 250 will be covered by the PVR Passport; you’ll have to pay the remaining Rs 50 convenience fee and taxes.

There’s a joining bonus for the PVR Passport program, and you get a flat discount of Rs 200 on spending Rs 800 on food and beverages at PVR.
