What is “Social Screening”?

At TERIFLIX, you dont have to wait for us to launch a “special” screening of films from our library. You can either book a private screening OR better yet, pick a film from our library, pick one of our venues, pick a date & time, buy/commit one or more of your Social Screening Passes and launch a screening.

We will create a dedicated page on our website for your screening. You and us will both share that with friends, family, co-workers, mailing lists and on WhatsApp groups, to invite people to join. When a minimum quorum joins, the screening gets confirmed.

On the date of the screening, everybody gathers to enjoy a great experience of the film and of each other. Social Screening is a way for you to get together with film-buffs and bond over films.

Social Screening FAQ
What is Social Screening?

Social Screening is a unique movie experience from TERIFLIX. Social Screening uses the power of social media to physically bring people together around a movie.

In regular theatres and multiplexes, you get to watch a movie only at times that they have scheduled with hundreds of other unknown people in the auditorium.

At TERIFLIX, with Social Screening, you will have the liberty to launch your own Screening. You get to select any movie from the TERIFLIX Library, select any TERIFLIX venue, pick a time slot convenient to you, and launch a Screening.

Also, someone else might have already launched a Social Screening of a movie. If you wish, you might simply choose to join that Social Screening.

To launch a Social Screening or to join one, all you need is one or more Social Screening Pass.

What is a Social Screening Pass?

Social Screening Pass is what you need to launch or join a Social Screening. It is a prerequisite. With one Social Screening Pass, you get the privilege to either launch or join one Social Screening.

Oh! A Social Screening Pass is just another fancy name for a movie ticket, isn’t it?

Not at all. There is a fundamental difference.

When you buy a movie ticket, you obtain the right for one person to watch a specific movie at a given movie theatre and at a given time.

If you miss the screening, then you lose the money you paid for the movie ticket.

  • You cannot use the movie ticket to watch another movie at the same theatre.
  • You cannot use the movie ticket to watch the same movie at another theatre.
  • You cannot use the movie ticket to watch the same movie at the same theatre at a different time.

Unlike a movie ticket, a Social Screening Pass gives you the right to join social screening of any movie, at any TERIFLIX venue and at any time you choose. At the time of purchase, a Social Screening Pass is not tied to a specific movie, a venue or time slot. It is only when you commit a Social Screening Pass does it get tied to a movie, venue and time slot.

How long is a Social Screening Pass valid?

Each Social Screening Pass allows entry to one person for a Social Screening.  When a Social Screening Pass is used up for a Social Screening, it is said to be consumed. Once consumed, the Social Screening Pass cannot be used again.

An unused Social Screening pass is one that has not yet been used up in any Social Screening.

An unused Social Screening Pass has unlimited validity. However, this is as an introductory offer. In the near future, Social Screening Passes will have an expiry date.

How many Social Screening Passes may I purchase at a time?

There is no limit on the number of Social Screening Passes you can purchase. Each Social Screening Pass allows entry to one person for a Social Screening.

So if you, for instance, purchase 10 Social Screening Passes, you may use them to participate yourself in ten different Social Screenings, or two of you may participate in five different Social Screenings or ten people to participate in one Social Screening. It is completely up to you.

How do I launch a Social Screening?

Launching a Social Screening is very simple.

  • Sign-up or login to your TERIFIX account on our website.
  • The first step is to ensure that you have at least one active Social Screening Pass in your TERIFLIX Account. An active a Social Screening Pass is one that has not been used in any Social Screening yet. If you do not have any active Social Screening Pass, we will prompt you to first purchase at least one Social Screening Pass. You may decide to buy any number of Social Screening Passes.
  • The next step is to visit the Social Screening page on our website. This page will provide you with a catalogue of movies and an option to launch a Social Screening.
    • Select a movie,
    • Select a TERIFLIX venue,
    • Pick a date & time slot from the list to schedule a Social Screening,
    • Optionally, write a invitation or welcome message that will be displayed on the social screening page,
    • Commit atleast one of your passes to the social screening and
    • Click on the “Create Screening” button.

    That’s it! Your social screening is now launched with you as its host.

  • Every social screening needs a minimum number of people to join the screening before a cutoff date, failing which it will be cancelled and everybody’s social screening passes will get credited back to their respective TERIFLIX accounts, which can then be used to launch or join another social screening.
  • To ensure that your social screening doesnt get cancelled, please share URL to the social screening page on your social media accounts. We will also announce it on our social media accounts to help ensure that people join the screening. Each time a person joins the social screening, everybody who has already joined it gets an email notification.
  • As soon as the social screening reaches a minimum audience, it will automatically get confirmed and everybody gets a confirmation email.
How do I get other people to join a Social Screening that I have launched?

Once you launch the Social Screening, you will have an option to publish the details of the Social Screening on your Social Media. You can either share URL to the social screening page on your social media accounts, or click on social media sharing buttons on our website to share them.

How do I join a Social Screening?

There are two ways to join a Social Screening. One, by using a link published on Social Media or two, by directly visiting our website.

In both cases, you will be required to sign-up or login to your TERIFLIX account.

If you have received a link from any of your Social Media, it means that someone wants you to join a Social Screening that they have launched. Simply click on the link and (after login) you will be taken to the specific Social Screening details page where the details of the Social Screening will be displayed. You will be able to read about the movie and the venue.

If you do not have any active Social Screening Pass, we will prompt you to first purchase at least one Social Screening Pass. You may decide to buy any number of Social Screening Passes. After purchasing Social Screening Passes, you will be redirected to the Social Screening page, where you get to commit one or more Social Screening Passes from your TERIFLIX account and join the screening.

If you directly visit TERIFLIX website, then you will need to navigate to the Social Screening page, where you will see a list of movies whose Social Screenings are active. Select any social screening you like, and commit one or more Social Screening Passes from your TERIFLIX account to join the Social Screening.

How much lead time should I provide for a Social Screening?

Lead time is the minimum number of days required from when you launch a Social Screening to the date of the actual Screening. Different movies have different lead time requirements.

When you select a movie to launch a Social Screening, you will be displayed a calendar where you get to select a date. This calendar will automatically factor the lead time required for the selected movie, and only allow you select a date beyond the required lead time.

For instance, let’s say today is Aug 15. For Movie-A, let’s say the lead time is 6 days. Then your Social Screening for Movie-A can be organized for Aug 22 or later. The calendar will allow you to select a date that is Aug 22 or later.

Why so much lead time? And why would lead time vary based on the movie?

Here is why:

  • Once a Social Screening for a movie is launched, we need to provide adequate time for more people to join the Social Screening. If you create a Social Screening for the next day, enough number of people will not be able to join. Hence the minimum lead time for all movies is 6 days
  • For almost all movies in TERIFLIX Library, TERIFLIX has already secured permanent screening rights. However, for a few movies TERIFLIX will need to obtain a go-ahead for every screening from the respective studio that owns the rights for the movie even though there is an on-going agreement between the studio and TERIFLIX. The studios mandate a lead time for providing the go-ahead. This is why the lead time may vary based on the movie.
Will you issue a receipt when I purchase Social Screening Pass?

Definitely! A receipt is instantly emailed to you.

Can I return my unused Social Screening Pass(es) and get a refund?

Social Screening Passes once sold cannot be refunded. Although, you will be happy to know that your passes have an unlimited validity. So you will be able to use your social screening pass at any time in the future.

Is there a minimum and maximum number of people for a Social Screening?

Yes, there certainly is a minimum and maximum number of people for a Social Screening. These minimum and maximum numbers are based on the TERIFLIX venue and film.

When you launch a Social Screening or join one, the minimum and maximum numbers are displayed prominently.

What happens if minimum number of people do not join the Social Screening?

When you launch a Social Screening, it is not yet confirmed for screening. When a minimum number of people join the screening, only then the Screening is confirmed.

If a minimum number of people (based on the TERIFLIX venue) do not join the Social Screening before a cutoff date, which is typically atleast 3 days before the Social Screening itself, then it will be cancelled. Please note that the cuttoff dates can change from movie to movie, and venue to venue.

If a Social Screening is cancelled due to lack of audience, then all the Social Screening Passes already committed thus far shall be credited back to the respective members’ TERIFLIX Account. Those passes can be used again for a different Social Screening.

How will I know if people are joining the Social Screening that I have launched?

As soon as you launch a Social Screening, you will receive an email stating that your Social Screening is launched, and that a specific number of people are required for the screening to be confirmed.

When someone joins your Social Screening, in addition to that someone, you also will be informed via email. Subsequently, as and when more people join the screening, you and everyone who has joined the screening will be informed via email. Please note, your email id will not be shared with any of the other members who join the screening. Nor will we share other member’s email ids with you.

In all these emails, the name of the person who launched the Social Screening is prominently stated, along with a their welcome note if any. Apart from this, these emails shall only state how many people have joined the screening so far, and how many more are required for the screening to be confirmed. No other personally identifiable information is included as part of this email.

May I choose any movie as part of Social Screening?

Yes! You may select any movie listed in our social screening creation page for launching a social screening.

What do I do if I don’t like any of the movies currently on TERIFLIX Library?

That would be a bummer!

But, worry not! We are continuously working to bring more and more movies into the TERLFIX Library. Just hold on to those Social Screening Passes. We assure you that very soon we will have a bunch of movies that will suit your taste in the TERIFLIX Library.

If you would like us to list a specific movie of your interest, please let us know. We will try and contact the production studio for rights to run social screenings of that movie.

May I cancel a Social Screening that I have launched?

Unfortunately, we do not have this option at present. Once you have joined a Social Screening by committing one or more passes, you cannot withdraw from it.
