What's On, June 2023


Types of Tickets

Are you a cinephile? If you plan on seeing several films during the festival, consider buying a Festival Pass for an unlimited film experience. They’re convenient and can save you money.

Student Rate

Student Rates

Show your valid student ID for discounted single tickets or festival passes.

Group Sales Packages

If you want to catch a show with a large group of 20+, our Group Sales Packages will help your group save.

Standby Tickets

Sometimes advance tickets are sold out, but don’t despair. A limited number of “standby tickets” will be available at the venue just before showtime.

If you want to explore this option, arrive at the theatre early and join the “standby line.” Be advised: When this line is admitted, it will be one ticket per person — you won’t be able to buy tickets for anyone who isn’t present.
