To Purchase Tickets Online

Go to the Schedule page, click on the film that you want, and look for the "Buy Now" button on that film's page. If there is no "Buy Now" button next to the screening you want to buy tickets for, that means the on-line allotment of tickets has sold out. You can try TicketMaster for tickets or arrive early at the screening to "fly stand by" for an available seat.
