The Hope Line
When advance tickets for a screening are sold out, rush tickets may be available at the theater. Some seats at every show are reserved for pass holders; however, sometimes not all those seats are used. Once we determine how many seats will be available, we release those "rush" seats for sale to people in the Hope Line. This line forms anywhere from 15 to 90 minutes before showtime.
