RUSH LINE: Just because advanced tickets are sold out doesn’t necessarily mean the film is sold out. We hold a number of seats for our pass holders, but 15 minutes before the show, we release any empty seats to the rush line.
Note: All sales are final. Tickets only guarantee seats until 15 minutes before showtime.
