What is Stand By and how does it work?
Only a portion of available seats are sold in advance so we can save room for our passholders. Therefore, even for crowded films, we can often accommodate many patrons just before showtime.
Numbered Stand By tickets are sold (cash or voucher only) beginning one hour before showtime, outside the theatre lobby at Stand By. (Be aware a line sometimes forms earlier than this.) Then just before the film begins, Stand By ticket holders are admitted, in numerical order, on a space-available basis until the theater is full. Those who cannot get in receive a refund in the manner in which they paid. Cash or vouchers only; no check or credit cards accepted.
Stand By ticket purchases and line-up for neighborhood screenings will be available for purchase one hour prior to the screening at the neighborhood theater's box office and follow the same time frame as regular Stand By.
Hint: buy your tickets early or, better yet, become a passholder-level member to avoid Stand By!
