    Seating Policy

    All ticket holders (with or without a pass) must arrive at the venue 30-minutes prior to show time

    The Green Line seats first, followed by the Blue Line. The Last Minute Line will be seated approximately 5-10 minutes prior to show time. Only passholders without a ticket and attendees with ticket vouchers may use the Last Minute Line. Film tickets are not sold in the Last Minute Line. Last Minute Line seats are first come, first served (space permitting).

    Seat saving is not permitted.

    There is no late seating. Once seating has concluded, tickets are no longer valid.

    Please do not leave empty seats in the middle of a row. Last Minute Line seating is less disruptive to the rest of the audience if empty seats are available on the aisles.

    All audience members must leave the theater following each screening. Please do not leave any personal belongings in the theater.
