About Festival Passes

An allotment of seats is held at every screening for Frameline pass holders. Please arrive early! Passes (with the exception of a Platinum Card) do not guarantee seating, and pass holders are allowed priority entry up to 20 minutes before posted screening time or until the pass holder seat allotment has been reached. Twenty minutes after the program has commenced, no one will be admitted into the theatre.

Castro Passes

Castro Passes, good for admission to all Castro Theatre screenings, excluding Opening Night and Closing Night, are available for $240 to Members only (membership must be valid through June 2017). Present your Castro Pass at the Members Door for admission. Castro Pass bearer may be accompanied at the Members Door by ONE guest with a valid ticket.

Gold and Platinum Cards are not sold separately.

Gold Cards are presented in appreciation of Frameline members at the Benefactor ($800+), Visionary ($1,500-$2,499), and Visionary Star ($2,500-$4,999) levels. A Gold Card entitles the bearer to priority admission (subject to house manager discretion) to all Frameline41 screenings.

Gold and Platinum Cards serve as your ticket to Festival events and screenings including Opening and Closing Night Films & Galas (some exceptions apply based upon Membership level).
