As a not-for-profit organisation run mostly by volunteers, we are really eager to help other similar organisations in our community to raise the funds they need. Therefore we’ve kept the costs low and simple.
Keeping it Simple
The cost is $10 per person. You just need a minimum of 10 people. You can then charge as much or as little on top as you like to reach your fundraising target. All you need to do is pick the movie, date and time and we’ll book you in. This will be to an existing session that is open to the general public.
Make a Bit More
To maximise your fundraising efforts at the event, you can use the foyer spaces to sell any last minute tickets or run raffles, lucky door prizes and silent auctions. We have a number of trestle tables here for your use without charge. Read this case study to see how one organiser made $20,000 from one event at The Capri.
In order to accurately charge for your event, we ask you to create a ticket that is individual to your event which contains the information listed below. Each person will require a ticket to gain access to the theatre.
- The name of the film and the classification
- Date of the screening
- Start time of the screening
- Admit 1
- Capri Theatre , 141 Goodwood Road Goodwood 5034
At the end of the night, we’ll tally up the amount of guests and charge you on the day so that you can pay out of your takings. No money is therefore required to exchange hands prior to the event so that you will not be out of pocket. All accounts must be settled in full on the day.
Handy ticketing tips
Always aim to sell your tickets in advance of the event, rather than have people buy them on the door. Inclement weather can often put people off coming, especially if they haven’t already bought their tickets. Collecting cash in advance can be awkward, so why not try an online service like www.trybooking.com, www.eventbrite.com.au or www.stickytickets.com.au. People can then pay by card and use their printed email confirmation as a ticket which will save you having to make up tickets yourself.
We can offer you private use of the theatre for your event from Monday to Thursday, all you need to do is guarantee a minimum number of 200 people. The price is still $10 per person. This is ideal if you’d like to show a short film raising awareness for your cause or show a PowerPoint presentation on the big screen. Please state that you’d like private hire when making your booking. Unfortunately we cannot allow private hire bookings during the school holidays or for the opening week of certain movies. Please enquire upon booking.
The Candy Bar is open for all events and is staffed by our volunteers. Guests can purchase a wide range of mostly South Australian products including Bickford’s traditional sodas, Golden North ice creams, popcorn, yummy Haigh’s chocolates or our famous choc tops, made right here by our volunteers. For a proper cinema experience, why not include some tasty cinema treats in your ticket price and choose from the packages below.

A dedicated and stocked bar can easily be set up for all events, staffed by our friendly volunteers. We have a number of options for this to suit all events, as outlined below.
Include a drink in your ticket price
A really simple option is to opt for our base package where for $14.50 per person you get the movie ticket, along with a glass of Tatachilla wine or sparkling or a bottle of beer. You can then charge as much or as little on top of this to reach your fundraising goal.
15% of the bar takings go to your charity
Here’s a corker for you – we can stock and staff a bar and sell drinks to your guests, then give 15% of the takings at the end of the night to go towards your fundraising goal. You can then set a great value ticket price and not have to worry about organising anything else.
Bring your own
If you’d like to bring your own drinks in, your ticket price becomes $12 per person. This will include the bar setup, linen, ice, plastic cups, a responsible person for the service of alcohol and the liquor licence. If you are selling drinks on the evening then you’ll need to provide a person to handle the cash.

It’s a real treat to watch the grand old WurliTzer organ rise from beneath the stage, adding atmosphere to any event. We can arrange for one of our talented volunteers to play your session in without charge. This would generally be for 15 minutes before your screening begins.
Once you’ve booked your fundraiser, we’ll help you to promote it by featuring it on our website for you. On average we receive almost 10,000 visits to our site per month with each person spending 2:30 minutes on the site so it’s a great way to promote your fundraiser at no extra cost. You can have a short blurb about what you’re raising money for, plus details of how to buy tickets including a website link.
Peace of Mind
Fundraising events are at the core of our business. We run them all the time so you can rest assured that you’re in safe hands. It may also be comforting to know that all profits made by The Capri go back into the restoration and enhancement of this heritage building and preservation of the unique WurliTzer organ for the future generations of South Australians.
