FOOD & DRINK:

You are not forced to purchase any of our Food and Drink offerings at the theater, but to avoid allergens and annoyances to other customers, absolutely NO Outside Food or Drinks are permitted into the Chabot. Please plan ahead as we are unable to store any items for you during your visit. 
However, Bottled Water (especially water in reusable water bottles) ARE allowed to be brought into the Chabot. 
Please note, Large Popcorn and Large Drinks are eligible for a Free Refill during the same visit only. Not later that day, not another day. 

 

BAG POLICY:

Unlike most of our nearby competitors, the Chabot will permit you to bring bags into the theater. However, for the safety and security of all Chabot Customers and Employees, ALL bags being brought into the Chabot are subject to random bag inspection and search. If you do not wish a bag to be inspected, please do not bring a bag with you to the theater. Again, please plan accordingly as we are unable to store any items for you during your visit. 

 

TICKET PURCHASES, MOVIE RATINGS, ONLINE TICKETING, REFUND, and EJECTION POLICIES:

For capacity and control purposes, All ticket sales, whether purchased in person at the Chabot, online via TheChabot.com or via Fandango are FINAL. However, if you purchased a ticket and for whatever reason cannot attend the show, the Chabot will issue you a Pass Ticket to use at a later date provided that your original showtime has not yet occured prior to your return of the ticket. This same policy applies for online purchases which means, YES, you must visit the theater in person, have your online ticket purchase validated, and have your pass issued PRIOR to the event start time you purchased a ticket for. 
Movies Rated R require any person under the age of 17 to have an accompanying parent or legal guardian over the age of 25 to also attend the movie. Yes, this means you cannot buy a 16 year old or younger person a ticket and send them by themselves to an R rated movie. You must go with them. 
Tickets purchased online via TheChabot.com include a 99 cent convenience fee (compared to a $1.70 convenience fee charged by Fandango). In the event of a ticket return or change, there are no refunds on the convenience fee charged nor will a pass be issued for these fees for any reason. 
Tickets purchased via Fandango and needing to be refunded for any reason must be handled directly between you and Fandango. 
In the event of any other show cancellation for any reason, refunds will not be issued. Passes to return to the Chabot at a later date are the only remedy to any issue, and are issued solely at the discretion of Management of the Chabot Theater.
All customers are expected to observe all theater policies. Once the movie has begun, all customers are expected to remain quiet, stay in their seats, and not distract from the movie in any way. Electronic devices are to be set to SILENT and not be taken out and illuminated for any reason in the auditorium during the movie. If you have a need, please proceed to the lobby BEFORE using your device for any reason. PLEASE NOTE THAT TAKING PICTURES, RECORDING AUDIO OR VIDEO OF THE MOVIE AT ANY TIME IS A FEDERAL CRIME
Parents, we understand that children make noise and have a hard time sitting still for periods of time. However, if they are distracting other customers in the auditorium we must ask you to minimally bring them out to the lobby to settle them down. Please remember our theater does not have doors between the lobby and auditorium, so you may need to step outside of the building if they are loud enough to be heard in the theater from the lobby. 
Management reserves the right to not only refuse service, but to eject any customer for any reason at any time from the Chabot. In those very rare cases, the ejected party will most likely not receive a refund OR a pass to return at a later date.
