RULES AND REGULATIONS


Welcome to the "See movies with your SCENEtourage" Contest (the "Contest").

By entering this Contest, you acknowledge that you have read, understood and accept the terms and conditions below.

Sponsor: Scene General Partnership ("Scene GP") is the sole sponsor of this contest (referred to as "Sponsor").

 

1. How to Enter

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Contest commences 9:00 am EST December 1, 2017, ending at 11:59 pm EST April 30, 2018 ("Contest Period"). The Contest Period is divided into four monthly contest periods, each beginning at 12:01am EST on the first day of each month and ending at 11:59pm EST on the last day of the each month. All entrants must be existing members of the SCENE loyalty program ("SCENE") with an account in good standing (for the purpose of this Contest, "good standing" means not cancelled or suspended) as of the start of the Contest Period or become SCENE members during the Contest Period, and maintain their SCENE membership throughout the Contest Period.

Regardless of method of entry, SCENE members must be a part of an active SCENEtourage group with a minimum of three (3) and a maximum of ten (10) SCENE members. Instructions on how to create or join a SCENEtourage group are below.

Entry Option 1:

Every time at least 3 members of your SCENEtourage go to the movies together (same movie, theatre and showtime) during the monthly contest period it will get tracked on the leaderboard located at www.scene.ca/scenetourage. The top ten (10) SCENEtourage’s that see the most movies during each monthly contest period will be entered into a draw to win the Monthly Prize. At the end of each monthly contest period, the tally for each SCENEtourage’s will be reset to zero (0). The odds of making the top ten for each monthly contest period depend on the number of movies each participating SCENEtourages group sees in accordance with the Contest rules. In the event that there is a tie between one or more SCENEtourage groups all groups that have tied will be entered into a random draw to select the top 10. By way of example only: If 5 SCENEtourage groups each see 5 movies and 10 SCENEtourage groups each see 3 movies, the first five groups will automatically be included in the top 10. The 10 groups that each saw three movies will be entered into a random draw to determine the remaining five SCENEtourage groups to make up the top 10. The odds of being in the top 10 depend on the number of movies each SCENEtourage sees during the applicable monthly contest period.

Entry Option 2:

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY OPTION: Participants may also enter the Contest by hand printing “See movies with your SCENEtourage Contest”, on a postcard, including the member’s name, full SCENE card number, address and phone number (with area code), email address and the names and last four digits of the SCENE card numbers for their SCENEtourage members and mail it with sufficient postage to “SCENE’s see movies with your SCENEtourage Contest, P.O. Box 3, 100 Yonge St, Suite 1601, Toronto, Ontario M5C 2W1. All mail-in entries received during each monthly contest period will be entered into a random draw. The mail-in entry selected will be entered into a draw with the top ten entries from Entry option 1 for the Monthly Prize. The odds of being selected depend on the number of eligible mail-in entries received during as the applicable monthly contest period. Only those SCENEtourage members identified on the post card will be awarded the Prize if their SCENEtourage is selected as a winner. All mail-in entries must be postmarked between the first and last day of the monthly contest period the participant wishes to enter and received no later than the 4th calendar day of the following month. Mail-in entries will be entered into the contest for the month in which the postcard is postmarked. Sponsor is not responsible for entries delayed or lost in the mail. Be sure your name, SCENE card number, address and phone number are complete. Mechanically reproduced entries will not be accepted. Multiple postcards mailed together for one or more individuals in a single envelope shall be void.

Eligibility to win a Monthly Prize:

Only those individuals who are members of the SCENEtourage selected as the potential winner as of 11:59pm EST on the last calendar day of each monthly contest period (the “monthly cut-off period”) may be eligible to receive the Monthly Prize. If you leave a SCENEtourage before the end of the monthly cut-off period, you will not be eligible to win the monthly Prize in the event SCENEtourage you were a part of is selected to win the monthly Prize. If the number of members in a SCENEtourage drops below three by the monthly cut-off period, that SCENEtourage will not be eligible to win the Monthly Prize for the month contest period in question.

SCENEtourage groups and/or individual SCENE members are only eligible to win one Monthly Prize in the Contest. If for example, a SCENE member who has already won a Monthly Prize leaves a SCENEtourage group and joins another, they will not be eligible to receive another Monthly Prize in the event the newly joined SCENEtourage group wins a Monthly Prize.
