Standby Policy

If an event is eligible for standby, on the day of the screening/talk, a standby line will form at the corresponding venue’s box office prior to showtime. Tickets may become available to the standby line on a first-come, first-served basis one (1) per customer. Note: for new releases, a standby option is not available for sold-out screenings.
