Spring 2014 Flash Passes

How Flash Passes Work

A percentage of theater seats will be held for passholders at every screening. Flash Pass Vouchers will be issued to passholders standing in line on a first come, first served basis and these vouchers will allow entry into the theater. After the limit of held seats has been reached, ticket holders will be admitted and any additional passholders will be admitted based on seat availability, before anyone standing in the “rush” line.

* No tickets required – seating not guaranteed.  Seating begins 30 minutes prior to showtime. Passholders are seated first, before the ticket holders. Passes are only valid for the festival for which they were purchased.
