KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Lines start forming up to an hour early and you must arrive at least 10 minutes before showtime to ensure a seat. Ticket holders or passholders arriving after 10 minutes prior to showtime are considered late and may not be seated. Refer to your ticket or pass for entry guidelines.
FIND YOUR LINE
Follow the signs and be sure to stand in the correct line (Passholders, Ticket Holders, or Standby).
In the event that all advance tickets have been sold, Standby tickets may become available for purchase. A Standby line will form at the venue, usually one hour before showtime. At approximately 10 minutes to a program’s scheduled start time, available seats are counted and sold on a first-come, first served basis to those in line. Standby tickets are sold only to those waiting in the Standby line at the time of sale. Vouchers are valid as payment. Please note that not all screenings on Standby will have tickets released.
