This program will offer new SCENE experiences as well as charitable contributions designed to bring Canadians together. SCENE members will celebrate safely with a 'SCENE Night Out' or 'Scene Night In.' Members can earn or redeem SCENE points when they dine-in, or enjoy dinner out, with one of SCENE's restaurant partners. Additionally, members can earn bonus points through the SCENE app and can access special offers on movie rentals from the Cineplex store.
