For all regular screenings, all passes allow priority admission for up to 15 minutes before screening/event time. After that, pass holders are seated on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Tickets to Regular Screenings
All tickets for regular screenings will be sold at the venue on a first-come, first serve availability basis for $12 General, $10 Students and SLOIFF Film Society, except for the Filmmakers of Tomorrow Showcase which is $5 for General and Free to students.

Seating for Regular Screenings
Seating for all events is limited and on a first-come, first priority basis, so we recommend you arrive early. Pass holders and advance ticket holders will be given priority seating up to 15 minutes before show starts.

Timing Is Everything
We recommend you get to the theatre at least 20-30 minutes before each screening. Tickets will be available for purchase 15 minutes prior to each screening. Availability is based on pass holder attendance up to that point.

Refund Policy
In the event of a sell out, refunds will be honored for individual ticket holders.
