Ticket Delivery Via Mail

Tickets and/or passes purchased online or by fax before June 8 will automatically be mailed within three business days to the billing address listed on the ticket order. Please email box office at if you would like your tickets held at Will Call. NOTE: Orders received on or after June 8 will automatically be placed at Will Call.

Will Call

Tickets held at Will Call will be available at the theater of the ticket order's first screening, ONLY on the day of that screening. Will Call will open thirty minutes prior to the first screening of the day at each venue. If you miss the first screening for which you have Will Call tickets, we'll hold your tickets at the theater where your next screening is taking place (and so on). Only those people listed on the ticket order will be allowed to pick up Will Call tickets. Please bring a valid photo ID so our Will Call volunteers can make sure you get the proper tickets.

Sold Out?

You might still get in! When advance tickets are no longer available, a separate Rush Line will form outside the venue, anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour prior to the screening. As soon as the number of unoccupied seats has been determined, typically a few minutes before showtime, those tickets will be sold to individuals in the Rush Line.

Order Form

Expedite your order: complete this Order Form before going to the Box Office. Please make sure to check the Sell Out Board when you get there!
