Ticket Delivery Via Mail
Tickets/passes purchased online or over the phone before June 10 will be mailed within seven to ten business days to the billing address listed on the ticket order.

NOTE: Orders received on or after June 10 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 one hour 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 takes 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.

At Rush? 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.
