HIC Membership

The Hull Independent Cinema membership scheme is really simple. You pay £15 and in return get a membership card and some goodies to welcome you on board. Your card then entitles you to £1 off the standard ticket price for all film screenings that are part of the regular HIC programme. Your member pack will be posted to you, but you don’t have to wait for it to arrive to start buying tickets with member discount.

As well as ticket discounts, we’re hoping to introduce other benefits of membership in the near future, such as discounts for Hull Film Festival tickets and passes, special member offers and partner discounts and offers from local businesses. These will be announced as we arrange them.

Membership gives you a card that’s valid for at least a year, and with our ever-expanding programme it can easily pay for itself within a few months. You don’t even need to wait for your card to arrive; just buy membership and you can start buying discount tickets immediately.

Manage your existing membership

If you are already a member of Hull Independent Cinema, you can now keep your contact details up to date and renew your membership via our online membership management system. Just click the button below to get started. You’ll need to login with the email address you used when you originally purchased HIC membership – if you’re not sure just and we’ll get back to you.

Terms and Conditions:

Membership cards are non-transferable, non-refundable and must only be used by the person named on the card.

Membership cards MUST be presented along with your ticket on the door when you come to a film. If you do not have your membership card we reserve the right to charge an additional £1 for your ticket.

Membership discount does not apply to our Student rate tickets.

Only one discount ticket may be purchased for each eligible film per membership. Members who purchase tickets on behalf of non-members may only claim the member discount on their own ticket. You may of course claim the discount on any tickets you purchase for other members, but those members must also show their own membership card along with their ticket at the door.

HIC membership cards are only valid for discount to regular HIC monthly screenings and other events as advertised from time to time. They confer no discount or additional benefits with regard to our WeWatchFilms or Cult Cinema Sunday strands.

    I’d like to become a member, how do i join? Artlink? Mireille

    • Hi Mireille, thanks for your comment. If you have a look at the article above you should find a link to our online store (hicp.bigcartel.com) where you can purchase an annual membership online. You can also pay for membership in cash at most of our Hull Independent Cinema screenings – just ask one of the team. Alternatively, if you would prefer to pay by monthly standing order let us know and we’ll send you the information you need.

      Unfortunately we cannot sell membership through Artlink as they do not have access to our membership records.

    Hello, I wish to buy someone membership as part of a Christmas present but I don’t want to put my email address as it then would be linked to my friend. I know his works email address for him but I wouldn’t presume that would be ok. (and I don’t want to ask because it’s a gift and he doesn’t know) Is there a way I could pay for one as a gift without me putting in an email address?

      Hi again,

      If you want to buy a membership for someone else go ahead with your purchase as normal (and use your own email address), then contact us at or add a comment in the appropriate box when making your payment to let us know that it’s a gift purchase. We’ll be in touch to make sure we have the right details for our records and ensure the membership is placed under the correct name. Thanks!

    Hi HIC!

    Tried to book tickets for ‘Hull on film’ to find the only two viewings were unsurprisingly sold out. Are there any plans for further opportunities to see the film? Many thanks

    Kindest regards

      Hi Martin

      Sorry you missed out this time, but don’t worry, we’re currently working with Yorkshire Film Archive to run more screenings later in the year. As we find out more we’ll let everyone know.
